Alternative way to settle employment disputes

New York employees know that not all jobs run smoothly. When employees face employment disputes, they often think of filing a lawsuit against their employers. Readers need to understand that taking the case to court is not the only solution to their problem. There is an alternative way to settle employment disputes.

Protecting employee rights against employer abuses

Most New Yorkers understand that not every workplace is free of discrimination or sexual harassment and that some workers are not paid overtime, are denied benefits and are otherwise abused. Some workers who experience such workplace violations are afraid of retaliation, which is why they often do not complain or seek outside help. Unfortunately, unless someone steps forward, especially the person who is suffering mistreatment, workplace issues are likely to continue without any resolution in the worker's favor.

How can New Yorkers stop workplace sexual harassment?

Most workers in New York know that sexual harassment is a prohibited activity in the workplace. Still, even though sexual harassment has been interpreted to be a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, harassment occurs year after year. Some victims of workplace harassment choose to endure it, often out of fear of retaliation or other economic consequences. Although rarely emotionally easy, sexual harassment can be stopped, if victims are willing to address it.

Study finds that pregnant women face workplace discrimination

New York residents are probably familiar with federal and state laws regarding workplace discrimination based on age, race and gender. Such cases often appear in the news after a lawsuit is filed against an alleged abusive employer or co-worker. Aggrieved employees just want to provide financial support for themselves and their family and the last issue they want to face is to have work disrupted by discrimination related to performing their duties. A frequent form of workplace discrimination that is putting many women at economic risk is pregnancy discrimination.
