Vindication for those harassed and retaliated upon

Every citizen should be given certain basic rights. When those rights are not honored and a person is threatened, harassed or demoralized, something can and should be done about it. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission strives to ensure and protect these basic rights and safeguard employees from discrimination. In a case out of Madera, California, Z Foods, at one time one of the nation's largest processors of dried fruits, was held accountable. This put the agricultural industry on notice that harassment of female workers would not only not be tolerated, but it could also cost a significant amount of money.

How do I know which leave to request from work?

When you have a family event or emergency that arises and you need to request leave from your place of employment, you may be confused as to what leave you should be requesting. If you request leave under the wrong provision, will it be denied? Moreover, is there one form of leave that allows for more days and by failing to request said leave, will you short-change yourself on the time you have to handle things at home?

When your rights are violated

Discrimination in the workplace is an offense against your basic civil rights. When those rights are violated, you may choose to accept the violations and bear the burdens that come along with them. Or if you choose to educate someone for their discriminatory actions, you may find they are receptive and can change their behaviors. If the person proves to not be ignorant to the discrimination and subsequent violations of your rights, you may face retaliation, and you may simply have no choice but to take legal action against the discrimination.

How to know if you have a case for wrongful termination

When you go to work on time, rarely call in sick and never clock out early, you may be caught completely by surprise to get a call into your Human Resource manager's office where you are informed the company is parting ways with you. You are then given only a couple of minutes, with a member of management supervising, with which to gather your belongings and leave. There is no chance to notify clients you have developed relationships with and no time to clear your computer of anything private.

Which employees are exempt from minimum wage laws?

There exists a Fair Labor Standards Act that regulates a federally set minimum wage and overtime pay regulation for all nonexempt workers in the U.S. However, some workers are exempt from this regulation and deciphering who is not protected by the statute can cause a due amount of confusion on the part of workers and those employing them. This begs the question, who is exempt from FLSA regulated pay protection, and why?
