Unfair competition alleged in legal battle of fertility clinics

Disputes can arise in any category of business in New York. Since there are so many kinds of businesses serving any need that New Yorkers have, there is fertile ground for allegations of unfair competition, accusations of intellectual property theft, and more. Regardless of the type of work a person does, it is difficult enough to start a business without worrying about another startup trying to piggyback or outright steal what was created. What makes this even more painful is if it was someone who once worked with the original business. When these issues arise, it is imperative to have legal advice from a qualified business law firm.

Undue hardship, religion and workplace discrimination

In New York and across the nation, there is an increasing amount of attention paid to workers' rights. In the news, that is often focused on harassment, gender, and sexual orientation workplace discrimination. However, religious discrimination is still a concern for many employers. While employees have the right to practice their religion and receive accommodations for it, employers also have the right to be protected from undue burden and hardship.

Former cryptocurrency employee files unpaid wage claim

Investment products are big business in New York and around the world. Companies are constantly seeking to get a foothold in the newest and latest categories that are rising to prominence. One is cryptocurrency. Since it is such a new vehicle, companies are in search of employees who know how to maximize profit. When disputes arise, it is inevitable that there will be back and forth statements as to how the parting of the ways was handled. If a worker feels his or her employee rights were violated, a lawsuit is a possibility. For those who are in the corporate sector, it is important to understand how to file employment claims when they have been subjected to violations.

Concerns about sexual harassment dying down among men

In recent years, an increasing number of people in New York and across the nation have chosen to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are similarly showing greater vigilance in adhering to employment law. While this is a positive step, it is also critical to keep track of the current climate as to how sexual harassment is viewed. If a worker is harassed, the employer could be liable for that treatment and be ordered to pay compensation for what occurred. If people are no longer worried about harassing behaviors, it could lead to an increase and employer liability.
