Court allows anti-Semitism-related wrongful termination case

The Big Apple is home to people of diverse races, sexual preferences and religious denominations. The incredible varieties of people who reside throughout New York give the state its dynamic characteristics. And, because of this diversity, New York law upholds the need for tolerance and equality both in civil and labor matters. However, there may be times when some employers forget this need and end up trampling the rights of their workers. A Westchester County man claims to be one of the victims of such a disregard of rights.

How can workers and employers avoid wage and hour disputes?

Employment disputes can be normal occurrences in a dynamic work area. However, they do not have to escalate into litigation. Wage-and-hour disputes are often the center of misunderstandings. However, if New York employers and employees are aware of their specific rights and responsibilities, the possibility of clashes regarding wages and other employment benefits can be significantly reduced.

NYC doughnut shop allegedly discriminates against pregnant woman

Under both federal and New York state laws, women are to be afforded the same opportunities in the workforce as men. However, despite the law and efforts of state officials to ensure adequate representation and opportunity, some companies still fail to recognize the value of women in the workplace, and some even trample women's labor and civil rights. This is exactly the allegation behind a recent lawsuit filed by a former female employee against a doughnut business on New York City's lower east side.

What should New Yorkers know about overtime pay?

When New York residents work more than 40 hours per week, in most cases they should receive overtime pay. However, there are many elements to overtime other than just putting in extra hours at work. New York workers should understand the basic information about overtime pay, not just so they will receive the correct payment for any additional hours worked, but especially to protect their employee rights from being violated by their employers.
