Sexual harassment claims lodged against judge

In New York, an allegation of sexual harassment can damage a person's standing professionally and personally. The impact it can have is extensive. This is especially true if it is a person in a position of power and respect in the community. While all allegations that a person has committed sexual harassment against employees should be taken seriously and, if they are found to be true, the accused should face the consequences, it is imperative to keep in mind that not all allegations are valid. Regardless of the case, the employer must have a strong defense.

Employees facing wrongful termination need a lawyer's help

The job market in New York can be difficult and when someone loses a job, they walk right into that tough situation without knowing what the future will hold. There are many reasons why a person might lose a job and just chalk it up to bad luck and the reality of a business failing or downsizing. There are other times, however, that people will find themselves out of a job for reasons that have nothing to do with performance or the business itself. They are subjected to wrongful termination. While it can be a worrisome time and there is inherent fear with losing a job, those who have their employee rights violated by being wrongfully terminated have rights.

Sexual harassment and assault alleged by former pol's assistant

When there are accusations against an employer claiming there was a violation of employment law, it can be a difficult situation to be in. When those assertions coming from an employee or former employee reach the level of sexual harassment and outright sexual assault, it can have a negative impact with chain-reaction repercussions for everyone at the workplace. If the accusations are against a prominent person in the field of politics, careers and lives can be ruined. While much of the focus on these allegations will be on the victim, it is important to remember there are two sides to every story and the claims might not be accurate. Crafting a defense is critical.

Why might I be denied unemployment compensation?

New York workers who have lost a job will likely believe they can get unemployment compensation while they are out of work. This is generally true in many circumstances. However, there are certain requirements to get benefits and reasons why the claim could be denied. For workers who believe they have had their unemployment claim denied without legal justification, it is important to have assistance from an attorney who is experienced in employment law.
