Here’s another good reason to consistently document all disciplinary actions: If an employee with a history of problems such as rules violations later engages in protected activity, it will be hard for him to show that the discipline was retaliation for engaging in that protected activity.
Flying Star Transport in Amarillo has agreed to settle charges it violated the ADA when it refused to hire a truck driver whose arm had been amputated when the driver was a teenager.
Brace yourself for an epic do-over of the salary-threshold rules that determine which white-collar workers are eligible for overtime pay.
In advance of President Trump’s planned June 14 visit to the Department of Labor, Acting Deputy Labor Secretary Ed Hugler sent an all-staff email urging DOL employees not to come to work that day.
An American Airlines flight attendant based in Philadelphia and a colleague from North Carolina are suing, claiming the airline failed to police online forums and Facebook pages it controls, permitting other employees to harass the women for their union activities.

Q. The FLSA requires that we pay the full salary for any week in which the exempt employee performs any work. We have a sick leave plan for all employees included in our paid time off—or PTO—plan. If an exempt employee calls off sick, we dock her PTO available, which includes sick or vacation. In other words, our PTO isn’t split into sick and vacation pay. Can we dock this bank until it’s gone before we pay her for nonwork days?
If you fail to keep tabs and the worker sues, it’s generally his word against yours as to how many hours per day and per week the employee worked. That can result in a big back-pay bill, especially if the court doubles the damages as permitted under both federal and state law.
