Sexual harassment is not just a problem for women

It is a not uncommon assumption that sexual harassment victims are always women. This fallacy lays in the common gender roles that women and men have assumed through history, where women traditionally held positions under or serving men who held more prestigious roles. Though stories of male victims of sexual harassment are not as ubiquitous as those of accounts from female victims, one famous male actor has taken it upon himself to tell his story of sexual harassment in his employment industry.

Car accidents may leave victims with deadly, painless injuries

Anyone who has ever experienced a car accident without suffering serious injuries has probably felt a sense of relief. Of course, it is always good to avoid serious injury in a dangerous situation, but car accidents often cause real harm that victims cannot feel for hours or even days, which is dangerous in its own way.

Know your rights after a motorcycle accident

Like car accidents and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents happen regularly on Illinois roadways and cause victims to suffer serious personal injuries. A victim's recovery after a motorcycle crash can be long and painful, and during that time, they may be unable to provide for themselves and their loved ones. Their damages can, therefore, become great as they hope to heal from their trauma.

Congressional rule bans discrimination against LGBTQ staff

Individuals often look to the federal government for guidance and clarity on how best to manage the many laws and policies that govern Americans everyday life. The world is forever changing, and it can be hard for Illinois residents to stay ahead of the many important social, economic, and political movements that drive change in their communities. It is therefore to the government that many look for an example of how to approach living justly in this country.

How can scaffolds be dangerous to construction workers?

In order to construct the homes, businesses, and other structures that Illinois residents see throughout their communities, construction workers must erect supports that allow them to reach higher to finish their building projects. These supports are often called scaffolds or scaffolding, and scaffolds can be made out of wood and other building materials. Generally, scaffolds are temporary structures that workers may use to reach further or higher than they would otherwise be able to from the ground.

How to recognize sexual harassment in the workplace

Inappropriate sexual conduct or even improper words used within one's workplace may constitute sexual harassment. When an Illinois resident feels threatened or harassed by such behaviors, they may be the victim of illegal employment actions. They may wish to discuss their workplace struggles with attorneys who support harassment victims and advocate for their rights.
