Keeping good records crucial when taking FMLA

Taking job-protected leave to deal with a serious illness or welcome a new child to the family is essential to workers all across New York. Unfortunately, there are people who qualify for this leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act but are afraid or unsure of what will happen if they take a leave of absence.

4 reasons why sexual harassment often goes unreported

Employees in New York have rights and protections from being mistreated on the job, and anyone who is subjected to misconduct like sexual harassment is encouraged to report it. Should that fail to remedy the situation, people have the right to take legal action. Unfortunately, this is all easier said than done. 

The importance of knowing the letter (and punctuation) of the law

Unless you work in certain jobs or industries, you may not ever think about the laws that protect workers across New York. You might not be concerned with definitions or the "legalese" of every bill and amendment proposed and in place. However, in every law, every sentence -- and punctuation mark -- has the power to affect interpretation.
