Are your HR policies ready for the New Year?

Employees are the greatest asset that a business can acquire. Throughout New York, employers consistently look to find the most competent and successful individuals available to fill the positions that are open at their entities. When a new employee is hired, they are expected to agree to certain employment terms to maintain their employment and receive their pay.

The process for recovering back pay and overtime pay

Terrytown residents work hard for the wages that they earn and should be compensated for the tasks they complete for their employers while on the job. This can include taking on longer hours and working overtime when their employers need employee support to get the work done. When a worker fails to receive the right compensation for the job they have done, they may have a cause to pursue under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

What is a severance agreement?

Not all jobs will endure until a New Yorker is ready to retire. In fact, it is not uncommon for individuals to change employers and even career paths throughout the course of their work lives. While some individuals will choose to leave places of employment on their terms and for better opportunities, others will find themselves leaving their jobs at the bequest of their employers.

The Demise Of “Culture Fit.”

Largely coinciding with the tech boom in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, companies began searching for terms to define their hiring needs in fun, creative ways. Ads started listing personality traits alongside education and experience. Prospective workers were described as fun or hip or energetic. They were “digital natives” and “tech savvy.” Soon, all of these traits began to merge into what companies would define as their culture.

How can unsafe product claims affect my business?

Products liability law covers litigation based on personal injuries sustained from defective or dangerous consumer products. If a New York resident buys a new product, uses it as the product was intended to be used and sustains an injury from that use that should not have been anticipated from the warnings and instructions provided therein, then the individual may be a victim of a products liability matter.

What to do when your business receives an EEOC complaint

Claims of discrimination can be difficult for businesses to defend and can cause employers a great deal of stress. It is advisable for New York employers to consult with business and employment law attorneys when they face employee-driven challenges based on claims of discrimination, wrongful termination and other legally impermissible employment actions.
