Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law

January 2018 Archives

DOL changes internship laws

Enforced by the Department of Labor (DOL), the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is also known as the FLSA for short, helps regulate the employer-employee relationship in all of the United States of America. Interestingly, although states like California may have their own labor laws, they also have to abide by the FLSA. In the event that the two conflict, employers have to abide by the one that is more favorable to the employee. With all that said, it should come as no surprise that any change the DOL applies to the FLSA is of monumental importance to business owners and managers on the one hand and hardworking Americans on the other.

How to handle harassment at a bar

California residents and others who work as bartenders may have to deal with poor behavior from customers on a regular basis. When it comes to incidents of nonfatal work violence, they have the third-highest rate behind law enforcement and security personnel. Some may simply choose to deal with the behavior in the hope that they don't lose their tips. Employees may also feel like they have to put up with the behavior because they haven't been trained on how to deal with it.

Terminated whistleblower prevails in lawsuit

Whistleblowers in California and across the nation are often under great pressure to keep their revelations secret; however, this does not mean that they lack legal protection. A recent case involving an employee who exposed an unsafe and inefficient asbestos removal operation in New York is a good example that may encourage whistleblowers to act.
