Fast-food workers sue over workplace violence

In addition to guarding against unlawful conduct, such as discrimination and sexual harassment, employers are responsible for other employee protections. Based, in part, on information from employment law proponents, 17 Chicago-area fast food employees sued McDonald's for a citywide and national pattern of violence.

Protections for workers from wrongful termination

Employers cannot fire employees for an unlawful reason even if they are considered at-will employees who can generally be fired at any time. If an employee is concerned that they have been the victim of wrongful termination in their workplace, it is important for them to know what is considered an unlawful firing.

A brief overview of the American with Disabilities Act

Living with a disability can be tough. It can affect one's ability to conduct even the most basic daily activities. Yet, many disabled individuals are able to function in society, including playing a part in the workforce. Although these men and women are capable of performing a wide range of workplace duties, they are often unfairly discriminated against, which can serve as an emotional and financial blow. This is wholly unacceptable, which is why disabled individuals who believe they have been discriminated against should consider whether legal action is justified.

Survey shows extent of experienced and perceived discrimination

Discrimination unfortunately still occurs in a wide range of settings and situations. Although extensive efforts have been made to educate the public on discriminatory practices and harassment, such behaviors continue to occur in the workplace on an all too frequent basis.
