Study finds hiring bias against older Americans

New York job seekers may be interested to learn that some older Americans have trouble getting hired potentially due to age bias. Although there are laws that prevent employers from explicitly discriminating against employees based on age, some companies may attempt to get around this by using certain recruiting tactics.

Dealing with wage disparity in the workplace

New York employees expect to get paid fairly for their work, especially if they have been employed by a particular company for several years. However, there are cases when employees discover that newer hires earn significantly more than they do. These cases can be difficult for human resource departments to address, especially if there are legal issues involved.

Whistleblower protection expanded by 9th Circuit

The Dodd-Frank Act regulates the activities of banks in New York and around the country. The law also protects employees who report securities violations to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Now, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has expanded the whistleblower protections to include employees who complain internally but who do not make formal reports to the SEC.

Dealing with FMLA notification procedures

The Family and Medical Leave Act entitles workers to certain rights when they are granted intermittent leave that employers in New York are obligated to respect. The law also holds employees to certain responsibilities regarding their use of FMLA leave that they must respect as well. These guidelines are important for employees to be aware of because they could affect their access to FMLA leave.

Court rules in favor of plaintiff's estate

New York residents may have heard about a court ruling that allowed the estate of a deceased worker to file an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) claim against his employer. The employee worked for a company called Griffin Construction from 2008 to 2013. In 2012, the man was diagnosed with prostate cancer and needed to take three weeks off for radiation treatment.
