Disabled firefighter sued for employment law violation

When workers are injured on the job and declared disabled in New York, they certainly have the right to collect compensation while they are unable to work. However, it is important for employers in both the public and private sector to understand that they have the right to question whether a worker is injured to the degree that they are unable to do any kind of work at all. This is especially poignant when a worker is caught working when they are simultaneously collecting disability payments - something that is all-too common. Although workers are well within their rights to seek benefits when they are injured, employers can sue workers who are improperly taking disability payments.

How to avoid age discrimination claims at your business

Older workers are in businesses all across the country as many Baby Boomers are not only still in the workforce but are working past the time most people usually retire. The Bureau of Labor statistics has reported that by the year 2022, 25 percent of the workforce will be made up by workers who are 55 or older.

Woman claims wrongful termination after complaining about abuse

Even in the current atmosphere with workers asserting their rights to be free of mistreatment and abuse on the job on New York and across the country, there are still daily reminders that people can face a variety of problems at work. In many cases, it will result in being sanctioned, denied promotions, wrongfully terminated and more. Employees should bear in mind that they have rights and when there was illegal behavior perpetrated against them, the law provides protection for retaliation and allows them to move forward with employment claims to be compensated.

How does employment law address age discrimination?

In New York State and across the country, treatment of employees has come to the forefront of the news. Much of that centers around sexual harassment. However, there are a seemingly endless number of ways in which an employer can be accused of committing workplace discrimination in some form. Just as harassing behaviors and the negative impact it has on the employer's reputation and ability to function is problematic, so too is it destructive to be accused of age discrimination. Understanding what constitutes age discrimination is key when there are allegations of it. Knowing what it entails is critical to a defense.

Employers should be aware of sexual harassment and its aftermath

The number of complaints about sexual harassment in the workplace has skyrocketed in recent months due to stories in the news and protest movements regarding its prevalence. In New York, New Jersey and throughout the Tri-State area, employers must be cognizant and quick to respond to these allegations as they can severely hamper a business's bottom line and its reputation. For those employers, a law firm that understands both sides of the equation can provide that defense.
