Adherence to employee rights with sexual harassment is improving

New York employees who have been sexually harassed in the workplace might take solace in the increased attention and scrutiny to put a stop to it. Research indicates that there has been a reduction in sexual harassment on the job since the #MeToo movement gained prominence. Still, the news is not completely positive as research shows that gender harassment increased in the two years since the #MeToo movement. Those who are still facing sexual harassment or are now dealing with gender harassment should remember they might have the right to file employment claims because of it.

New law makes workplace discrimination for hairstyles illegal

New York employers understand the difficult nature of running a business and how problems with human resources and employee relations can have a negative impact on the workplace and the business overall. To combat that, most employers will have detailed employee handbooks containing workplace policies such as appearance and comportment, and they expect employees to adhere to the rules therein. Recently, California passed a law that outlaws workplace discrimination based on hairstyles. Now, New York has done the same.

Famous entertainer and businessman sues over alleged fraud

Creating a lucrative and successful business is the dream of many New York entrepreneurs. To have a brand that is prominent, popular and global is a noteworthy goal. And, it is hoped that through hard work, this goal will be achieved. There are, however, problems that arise even when a business is successful. If other companies do not adhere to contracts, commit fraud or there are other behaviors that are cause for commercial disputes, it could lead to litigation.

Employers must fully understand new sexual harassment laws

With the attention that sexual harassment is now getting in New York and across the nation, it is no surprise that many states - New York included - are tightening up the laws regarding how these allegations are handled. While these steps are intended to protect employees, it is undeniable that they can also make it difficult to conduct business if employers are repeatedly accused of sexual harassment and related violations, and the laws are in place to hold them accountable even if it is a situation that is not so clear.
