Woman claims illegal workplace discrimination cost her job

Despite the attention paid to workplace issues today, New Yorkers and people across the nation continue to be confronted with various violations of the law while at work. That includes civil rights violations, wrongful termination, and illegal workplace discrimination, amongst others. Those who are facing these issues might think they have limited options to seek justice. However, they can pursue compensation by taking legal action with help from a lawyer who is experienced in handling workplace issues from the perspective of both employers and employees.

Are you experiencing age discrimination? You can fight back

New York employees have the right to a workplace that is free from harassment and discrimination of any kind. If you are experiencing inappropriate treatment at your place of work, you have the right to fight back. You should not have to deal with any discriminatory treatment, including age discrimination. 

New York State lawmakers hear testimony on sexual harassment

There is obviously no place for sexual harassment and other violations of employment law in New York State. With the "me too" movement having become so well-known across the nation, it is no surprise that a greater number of people who have been subjected to violations of employee handbooks, the law and propriety have come forward. While employees who are mistreated with these and other illegal behaviors have the right to seek compensation, it is imperative for employers to remember that they must understand their right to craft a defense against allegations as they might be unfounded or fabricated. Keeping track of how sexual harassment might be addressed in the future is part of lodging that defense with help from an experienced law firm.

Former bartender files wage claim against hotel over tips

There are many jobs in New York and across the nation where workers rely on tips to boost their income. While most employers who have so-called "tipped" workers will adhere to the law regarding this issue and see it as a benefit to both the employee and the business as it will improve service, some commit violations of the law. For workers in the service industry who believe they have been damaged by this type of behavior, it is possible to get their employee rights upheld by filing a wage claim.

Employment law for employers and contracts needs legal advice

In the current climate where employees are gaining increasing power to file claims against employers for perceived wrongdoing, it is important that employers protect themselves even before the person starts the job. In a professional atmosphere, having that protection goes beyond hiring the best possible candidate in an aboveboard and fair way. It includes crafting a comprehensive contract that will address the potential issues before they arise. This is where it is important to have legal advice from a law firm that specializes in these contracts and agreements.
