NY Court sends discrimination case back for more facts, pt.1

A reverse discrimination case is returning to the lower court after the New York Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, found there were factual questions that needed to be answered before the trial court could dismiss the action.

A larger sum than all the robberies in the U.S.

Wage and hour issues are often hidden. Employees are placed in positions where they feel as though they must complete a job or a task, regardless of compensation. They may have tips shorted or be subjected misclassifications that deny them their pay for hours worked. And to follow the mainstream media, one would be led to believe that wage theft and wage and hour violations only occur with great rarity.

An unusual case of explicit employment discrimination

Gender discrimination has long been prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1991.

And no one, expect perhaps the perpetrators, finds that acceptable or believes it should be permitted.
