Employees should be aware of retaliation for FMLA leave

Most Indiana workers are likely familiar with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which grants employees 12 weeks of unpaid leave for family or medical reasons. Employees who are approved for FMLA leave have job protection, and it is illegal for employers to fire them for taking FMLA leave.

Court rules employer should pay more legal fees in FMLA case

Employers in Indiana and elsewhere in the country that interfere with federal law, such as refusing leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act to eligible workers, could be liable for their legal fees.

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act 50 years later

As the Age Discrimination in Employment Act reaches its 50th anniversary, employment-related age discrimination claims in Indiana and around the country show no sign of abating. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claims regarding age discrimination peaked in 2008 at over 24,000. In the past decade, at least 20,000 have been filed annually, and in 2016, there were 20,857 filings.

The assumption in even bring up the subject is that the two should somehow be equal. However, if presented with the question of what is most important, we think working Indiana parents would say their family's take precedence.
