Labor and Employment Issues
Labor and employment issues are protected by a number of state and federal laws. These laws are important to both workers and businesses, labor organizations, and governments. Collective bargaining, discrimination, employee leave, personnel issues, unemployment, wages, and hours are just a few of the major employment and labor issues common today.
Know Your Employment Rights
Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal government prohibits any potential employer from discrimination based on, but not limited to race, gender, nationality, religion, age, or disability.

Depending on your situation, the attorneys of Borrus, Goldin, Foley, Vignuolo, Hyman & Stahl, P.C. can represent you.
Social MediaEmployment Law
For many individuals, not a day goes by without the need to access a social media site. Employee use of social media in the workplace is more frequent now than it ever has been before. In our new age of technology, the line between work and personal online activity is becoming even more blurred. Businesses also frequently access social media sites to market and promote their company. The convenient use of these platforms enhance the probability for possible damage from lawsuits. Use of social media in the workplace can also extend to harassment. Many cases allege social media was used as a method for harassing an individual or a coworker, with the employer being held liable.
Discrimination Due To Disability
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the majority of American adults with disabilities are either unemployed or underemployed even though they have the ability and the desire to work and be contributing members of society. Also, approximately one-third of employee discrimination charges reported to the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission site discrimination due to disability. Individuals with disabilities also report various employment barriers to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Employer Use of Background and Credit Checks
It is not very common for a potential employer to require a credit check prior to employment. In some states, it may not even be legal for companies to determine employment eligibility based on credit checks unless they obtain written consent from the applicant. The government remains prudent against background checks preceding employment. More specifically, it is even more prudent against using arrest records to base employment decisions.
The aforementioned scenarios are just a few examples of major employment issues. However each year, laws on employment change regularly and it is important for employees as well as employers to allow one of our qualified attorneys to evaluate certain employment policies, procedures and practices frequently.
