What qualifies for workplace sexual harassment?

With sexual harassment laws in place across the country and employers and workers becoming more attuned to everyone's workplace rights, acts of sexual harassment should be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, some companies do not adhere to the law. If you are a worker in New York, then you should know the basics of sexual harassment: its definition, what qualifies as harassment and what steps to undertake to deal with it better in case you become a victim.

Sandwich chain faces employment claims

Now with nearly 2,000 franchises across the country, including many in New York, Jimmy John's sandwich company has steadily grown over the last three decades.

The hospital, however, does not seem to be taking their concerns very seriously.

Strike averted when LIRR comes to terms with rail workers

Commuter trains are commonly used in major American cities, but probably nowhere are they more essential to moving large numbers of workers and employees to and from their workplaces as in New York City.

So when a potential strike looms because a rail line's management and the union workers who run the railway cannot reach agreement, commuters become extremely anxious.

NYC Human Rights Law prohibits workplace discrimination

For many people, the idea of discrimination seems antiquated.
