When a former employee asks the Texas Workforce Commission to order her former employer to cough up allegedly unpaid wages, the commission’s decision on what was owed can be used to end a Fair Labor Standards Act claim for the same pay.
The health insurance “offer rate” for all but the smallest employers increased in 2017.

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed the dismissal of a sexual harassment case and ordered the lower court to consider additional evidence that an employee who was acting as her own attorney unsuccessfully tried to present.
