Senate seeks to strengthen gay employee rights

The Fair Labor Standards Act was created to protect workers from retaliation and exploitation. It also defines the minimum wage, which depends on the state, and the right of workers to receive overtime pay when they put in more than 40 hours of work per week. Child labor is also prohibited in the FLSA, especially if the job poses serious health risks. Workplace discrimination based on race, age, religion and gender is also prohibited under the law.

Ex-employees file an employment claim, alleging sexual harassment

Workers in White Plains, New York are confident about the employment laws implemented in the state. Employment laws prohibit unfair practices such as sexual harassment, wrongful termination, failure to pay overtime and other benefits. They also protect employees from employers who discriminate after the employee files a workers' compensation claim. A violation of employee rights can subject an employer to costly fines, which will serve as a lesson to those who continue to exploit their workers. An employee may also seek legal action to recover damages based on their incurred losses.
