New York plans for changes to employment law to stop harassment

New York employers should be cognizant of the potential changes that might stem from greater attention being paid to worker complaints. While sexual harassment is currently the most commonly discussed issue with regard to problematic workplaces, there are many other issues that should be considered, each of which can have serious ramifications for employers and employees. Employers could be at greater risk of being sued for employment law violations, so it is wise to keep track of them and have advice from a qualified law firm experienced in helping employers protect their interests.

What is workplace discrimination based on genetic information?

As New York employees become more cognizant of employment law and how it protects them from certain types of workplace discrimination, employers must be similarly aware of the impact these issues can have on their business. A violation can cause extensive problems, lead to a lawsuit, and result in negative public attention. While many forms of discrimination are relatively self-explanatory, such as racial discrimination, gender discrimination and more, one issue that might not be as commonly understood is genetic discrimination.

Employers need experienced legal help for employment law disputes

Throughout New York, employees are feeling more comfortable with lodging complaints about various forms of workplace mistreatment and allegations of wrongdoing. Of course, no employer wants workers to feel as if they are being treated unfairly or subjected to employment law violations. Whether the case is being taken before a panel to investigate it or it is heading to court, the employer will generally be portrayed as the entity in the wrong. However, that is not always the accurate portrait. It is possible that the employee is making claims that are inaccurate or taken out of context. They might be flat out wrong. With that, employers must have a law firm on their side that understands employer defense.

In-house counsel claims employee rights were violated

Regardless of the newfound attention and attempts to stop sexual harassment from taking place in New York workplaces, it continues to happen in a variety of ways and to people in many kinds of jobs. From the corporate world to workaday people living paycheck to paycheck, sexual harassment happens often. More people are willing to speak up about it and demand their civil rights through employment claims, but that does not end the treatment completely. For those who are willing to complain about it, the situation is often made worse when it is dismissed or downplayed by the employer. In these circumstances, having legal advice from a law firm that helps clients seek compensation for sexual harassment is needed.
