Protocol for handling sexual harassment must be established

All employers should have established protocol for reports regarding harassment or discrimination. While many of these cases can simply be reported to a designated person, this isn't the case for sexual harassment.

You shouldn't face discrimination because of your disability

Living with a disability can be challenging enough without other people judging you for it. For this reason, the state of California enacted several laws that provide you with the protections you need in order to live your life free from the preconceived notions and discrimination of some employers.

Restaurants and wage violations

Wage disputes seem to be a common problem for restaurant employees -- whether they're working at a burger joint or waiting tables at a four-star establishment. Lawsuits over wages have doubled in the last decade, leaving employers and employees equally disgruntled.

Terms of a severance agreement might be up for negotiation

Some employers announce that job positions are going to be phased out before the people holding those jobs are actually let go from them. When this happens, there is a chance that the person who is being terminated will be able to work out a severance agreement. These agreements are important for the employees because they can provide some measure of financial stability until they are able to find a new job.

Find out what might be in a severance package

The news of companies filing for bankruptcy or simply closing their doors brings up the question about what is going to happen to the employees who are losing their job. For some of these employees, there might be a severance package waiting for them. This can also happen even if the business isn't closing but an employee's position is being terminated.
