Common employee rights you should know

Many years ago, employees didn't have any rights. The employers could do whatever they wanted, and the workers either had to deal with it to earn a paycheck or they could leave. Now, New York workers have particular rights that they can count on to keep them safe in the workplace.

People take criticism worse from women

The results of a university study indicate that both men and women have more negative reactions when they receive criticism from a woman than from a man. This has implications for the future of workplace leadership in New York and across the country. It may mean that women in leadership positions will turn to less-than-optimal management strategies in order to be heard or that they may have less interest in leadership in the first place.

Discrimination continues to hold back women workers

Courts in New York and across the country are awaiting a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court over the legal understanding of sex discrimination. The Obama administration's Justice Department and several federal appeals courts say that the ban on sex discrimination includes a prohibition on discriminating against LGBT employees on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. However, other courts and the Trump administration's Department of Justice have argued that it does not. While this legal battle is continuing, there are also many standard sex discrimination issues that continue to affect women in the workplace.

African Americans in New York and throughout the country sometimes experience discrimination because of their natural hairstyles. Activists working for the Dove Self-Esteem Project and the CROWN Coalition recently organized an event on the West Coast to urge school administrators to accept natural hairstyles instead of shaming and disciplining students who choose not to treat their hair chemically.
