Does NY employment at will make wrongful termination obsolete?

Job security is extremely important for most workers, including those in New York, especially during economic turmoil, such as that seen over the last several years. Unfortunately, New York's employment-at-will laws offer little protection for many workers.

Handling employment disputes effectively and efficiently

Disputes in the workplace can be healthy at times, depending on their nature. If disagreements are due to a healthy exchange of ideas, then it can be acceptable, and even welcome. Such exchanges mean that the workplace is dynamic and everyone's voice is given sufficient merit. If the dispute's nature is damaging, however, like discrimination, defamation and troubles with employment benefits, then employment law issues may be implicated. Our Westchester County, New York-based law firm provides experienced and reliable professionals to shed light on employment disputes.

What is pregnancy discrimination in New York?

Despite the many challenges that pregnancy presents, pregnant workers still go about their lives and report to work on a daily basis. While many people, including New Yorkers, may find this commendable, some employers either frown on this practice or disallow it altogether, either through fear that it will lead to higher costs or out of some other bias. This, of course, is an affront to the employee rights of female workers. There is such a thing as pregnancy discrimination, which protects them from such treatment.

For many New Yorkers, receiving a well-deserved paycheck after working is nothing less than satisfying. However, that feeling can easily turn to confusion and eventually anger upon realizing that the salary one has received is insufficient. Unfortunately, a recent report indicates that the number of wage thefts is growing across the United States.

Ex-intern claims sexual harassment, sues company for millions

However, everything can change when the promising career has a caveat that requires doing sexual favors. This is a clear indication of sexual harassment, a situation that is not just morally wrong but has criminal implications. Recently, a New York intern was allegedly at the receiving end of workplace sexual harassment and she has filed a case against people who she claims are responsible.
