How your employer’s retaliation could benefit you in the long run

As a worker in the U.S., you’re entitled to basic protections such as to receive fair pay, to be treated without discrimination and to have basic health and safety protections in the workplace. If your employer does not uphold such protections, you have the right to make a legal claim against them.

Is it legal to advertise for a job that’s already been filled?

In a previous post, we discussed the growing trend of job interview fraud—the dishonest practice of holding online interviews for jobs that don’t exist. In today’s post, we examine the phenomenon of fake job postings.

Is it worth it to sue over unfair wages?

Being in an oppressive work environment is similar to being in any kind of abusive relationship—it can be emotionally devastating. When you’re treated poorly, you can be made to feel like you deserve such treatment—and that you have no course of action against it.

How to reclaim power in forced employer arbitration

We’ve discussed in previous posts some of the pitfalls of mandatory arbitration clauses in employment contracts—which often benefit the employer over the employee. If you’re offered a job and your new employer requires you to sign such an agreement, you may assume you have no option other than to blindly agree. After all, you might expect that refusing to sign means you’ll lose the job offer.

Chances are, if you’re looking into hiring an employment lawyer, it’s your first time. Most people don’t experience employment-related disputes regularly, so when they encounter the need for employment counsel, the legal process is unfamiliar.

How to avoid legal trouble when providing an employee reference

As an employer, providing a work reference for a past employee can be tricky. It’s your job to make sure the information you’re providing gets into the right hands. In addition, if you provide a less than stellar review of the employee’s work, you could put yourself at risk of a lawsuit. Your former employee could sue you for libel or slander, or a prospective employer could sue you for a negligent referral.
