Brooklyn community board firing claimed as retaliation

Borough President Eric Adams is facing claims that he retaliated against a community board chair after the chair accused him of firing a 66-year-old district manager on the ground that she was too old. The community board chair claims that he was intentionally not reappointed to the position he had held for nearly 20 consecutive years because of the matter.

Supreme Court's home care ruling could mean better caregiving

Take a look around you during your time off sometime. That person sitting next to you at the movie possibly works a very different gig than you do. Maybe he or she puts in 40 hours or more a week, but their job's classification provides them with fewer employee rights than your job provides you. 

Workplace harassment myths that prevent people from filing claims

Being sexually harassed on the job or working in a hostile work environment can make a person feel extremely isolated, embarrassed and scared. Unfortunately, offenders often rely on these emotions and even try to enhance them in an effort to try and keep an employee from filing a complaint.

What are some employee rights in New York?

What applicants should know about illegal interview questions

Even though job growth was not as strong in April compared to previous months, a number of people are still poised to enter the job market as 2016 continues. With that, hiring should be expected to continue at a brisk pace. However, not all job applicants are treated the same, and they may not always understand their rights as they are considered for open positions.

New York electronics retailer faces Department of Labor lawsuit

Even when a company has been sued by several employees over a span of years, sometimes the company just doesn't seem to get the clue that they need to change the way they treat employees. This may be the case with New York-based electronics retailer B&H. After facing a lawsuit from a group of Hispanic workers back in 2007, a lawsuit from a group of female workers in 2009 and a third lawsuit from two Latino workers in 2011, the company is now facing a lawsuit from the Department of Labor.
