Discrimination causing Google's attrition of black employees

Being employed by a company means more than just representing the company and completing the work task assigned. An employee is a person afforded rights in the work environment, meaning that employers must treat each of them a certain way. This also means that employees have an expectation that they will be safe from certain events or treatment, such as discrimination, harassment and wrongful termination.

How do you qualify for unemployment benefits in New York?

Whether you have worked for an employer for a few months or several years, the goal of an employee is to remain employed. Unfortunately, situations out of an employee's control occur. Whether it is downsizing or a change in management, some employees are let go. This can be financially devastating for some employees, causing some to seek unemployment benefits.

Helping employers address employment law issues

Whether you own or operate a small or large business, the one thing that any employer has to address is what type of employees they will hire. Whether that means developing an employee manual or navigating issues that occur in the workplace, it is vital for employers to understand how best to handle these matters to ensure their rights are protected, as well as the rights of their employees.

Overtime pay and employment litigation

For the most part, we all need to work or have a family member work to get by. Income is based on a person's wage and the amount of time worked in a certain time period. When employees go over this a designated number of hours, commonly 40 hours, overtime pay could kick in. For some employees, this added pay is necessary, as working extra hours is the only way to make ends meet.
