What protection for retaliation do New York employees have?

New York employees should not be afraid to speak up when there are workplace issues. However, many employees will subtly or tacitly discourage employees from doing so with various threats - overt and implied - used to prevent it. Workers who are concerned about violations but do not know what protection for retaliation is available to shield them or who have already been retaliated against should know the facts about retaliation and how the state has legislated against it. A legal filing can be a way to be compensated after an employee was confronted with retaliation.

Many women have employee rights violated with sexual harassment

With the increasing number of stories where people are complaining about workplace civil right violations and being subjected to sexual harassment and discrimination, the scope of the problem in New York State and across the nation is becoming clear. Keeping track of the statistics of people who say they are being sexually harassed or discriminated against is beneficial to finding strategies to reduce its incidence.

Questions surround if man's wrongful termination lawsuit

New York State employers who are seeking to protect their business will often need to dismiss employees who they deem detrimental to it. This is highlighted in situations that are public with prominent people accused of violating the requirements to retain the job. There is often back and forth regarding how far employment law goes in protecting workers from wrongful termination and the right of employers to dismiss an employee if they feel it is necessary. Employers who are confronted with this situation should understand their rights and have help from a law firm that understands the perspectives of workers and employees.

Woman claims retaliation violated her employment rights

New York workers who are faced with a violation of their employee rights and come forward to seek compensation are taking a drastic and courageous step to protect themselves. Unfortunately, many employers -- public and private -- do not have the expected reaction of sanctioning employees who have violated the law when it comes to worker treatment. In fact, they will make matters worse by retaliating against the complaining employee. For workers who have already dealt with sexual harassment and other mistreatment, they must also remember that they have the right to protection for retaliation and can seek compensation for it.

How to respond to sexual harassment in the workplace

No one should have to walk into work anticipating sexual harassment from colleagues. In the unexpected situation that it does happen, however, it may not always be instinctual to report it. Many women who have experienced workplace sexual harassment may be hesitating to take immediate action for various reasons, such as fear of retaliation or of losing their job altogether.

2019 changes to employment law for employees grants new benefits

New Yorkers who were celebrating the new year by having a good time with friends and family might have had other reasons to celebrate. The dawn of 2019 not only marks the turning of the calendar from one year to another, but it also put into effect new employment laws that are designed to enhance the benefits and employee rights of workers in the state. While the laws must now be followed by employers, it is always important for workers to remember that some employers might try to circumvent these laws or use threats - overt and implied - to prevent their employees from exercising those rights. If that happens, having legal help is key to get the benefits workers are entitled to.
