Anti-Muslim bias and employment discrimination

Getting a job can be a very exciting time. Whether you are a teenager, fresh out of college or changing careers, having a job is very important. Most employers hire an individual based on their strengths and qualities. Much like good qualities cause a person to obtain a job, negative qualities could cause an individual in New York or elsewhere to lose their job. However, one reason a person should not lose a job or feel unsafe in a work environment is discrimination.

How can employers protect against retaliation claims?

Certain statutes and regulations have been passed to ensure employees feel safe. This goes beyond safe from injuries and fatal accidents. Because employees should feel comfortable to speak up, whistleblower rights were developed.

Understanding the Pregnancy Discrimination Act

For New Yorkers finding out that they are pregnant, it is an exciting time. It means starting or expanding a family. But, it also means adapting one's life around the charges that occur during the pregnancy. It might be difficult to work or continue certain job tasks because of the normal symptoms of pregnancy.

Are you an employee?

From freelance writers to web designers to podcast editors and social media consultants, the internet has given rise to a great decentralization of employment. However, just because you aren’t in the office, doesn’t mean you aren’t an employee.

Protecting your rights after reporting employer's unlawful acts

Employees tend to know the basics when it comes to their rights in the workplace. Discrimination and harassment tend to be highlighted situations, where employees have the right to take a stance and protect his or her rights. However, some employees may not fully understand that their rights extend beyond just speaking out about their mistreatment. When employees observe unlawful activity by an employer, he or she has the right to blow the whistle on their employee.
