Here’s a trap for unwary public employers. Public employees can sue their agencies if they experience discrimination based on their association with persons of different races. That’s why it’s important to keep things professional and avoid any comments on an employee’s personal life or choice of associates ...

Employees who claim they were fired illegally and whose jobs are protected by the Civil Service Act can win their lawsuits—if they can prove the Civil Service Board merely rubber-stamped a supervisor’s discriminatory decision. Until now, it was unclear whether that was the case ...

When Michaels, a chain of arts-and-crafts stores headquartered in Irving, TX, transferred manager Daniel Zimmerman into its St. Augustine store, upper management received numerous complaints from staff about his rudeness.

The I-9 establishes the employee’s identity and his or her legal work status. Employers can hire only those who are eligible to work legally in this country ...

Does your office look like the set for the latest sleep-medication commercial? You know, the one where employees drag themselves to work while their dreams come to visit them. These days it seems almost everyone is a bit sleep deprived. But don’t let bleary-eyed employees make excuses for tardiness.
