Nearly one in four Philadelphia-area workers who died on the job in 2006 was a homicide victim, the highest proportion in the nation. The U.S. Labor Department reported in December that 89 workers in the area died on the job in 2006, 22 of them by homicide ...

Q. During the busiest period of the year, a veteran employee asked for time off to attend her nephew’s graduation. After being turned down, she called in sick on graduation day. Is this considered insubordination? And how should we handle this situation? ...

Q. My employee, who is a union member, has a nonwork-related injury that requires a six-week absence from work.

In an interesting twist, the actual ability to become pregnant isn’t particularly relevant as long as the employee who claims discrimination can show her employer thought she might become pregnant ...

Sometimes managers want to handle problems themselves and not involve the HR department or others in the chain of command. But telling employees to keep quiet and not complain to higher-ups actually may amount to retaliation.
