Protections in whistleblower situations

Every employee desires to work in an environment that is safe and free from negative pressure and influence from other employees. Unfortunately, there are situations in which this comfort is compromised and an employee can be left in a position in which they feel something needs to be said. Speaking up and pointing out wrongdoings by a company can be extremely stressful and even can feel unsafe, but there are various safety nets and shields that make whistle blowing a viable option.

Am I being properly paid by my employer?

If would be nice if everyone could say that they do not work for the money, but solely for the joy of the job.

On the other side of the coin, most businesses are in business to profit. In order for both sides to be in agreement over their goals, wages or salaries must be established and adhered to during the course of employment between a worker and the person's employer.

The link between the NFL and brain injuries

New Yorkers who watch football know that it can be a brutal sport for the players. The best athletes in the world compete in a sport that involves collisions and impacts on every play. As a result, it is no wonder that there has been suggested links to head trauma among current and retired players. Yet, until a few weeks ago, the National Football League (NFL) never officially acknowledged there was any link.
