All employees have rights, even port truckers.

Port-trucking is an occupation many people don’t think about. Port truckers are the people who take items the small distance from factories to the ports where they are shipped to stores. This is a small but critical step in the overall shipping operation.

Although port trucking is important to the US economy, the actual drivers who do this work have been treated poorly. Port truck drivers and their families need to understand their employment law rights.

Protecting employee privacy rights in the technological age

The vast majority of Americans place a significant value on their privacy. This value extends to many spheres of life: including privacy at home, online privacy and privacy at work, to name a few.

The issue of privacy at work becomes more challenging to maintain in the era of biometric information. Since the regular use of biometric information is relatively new outside of criminal investigations, the law has work to do in order to catch up and provide clarity in this emerging area of law.

California court upholds weekly day of rest for employees.

A day of rest. The very notion can seem quaint and antiquated. As we have become a primarily 7-day-a-week working culture, most American employees just laugh at the notion of a guaranteed day off every week.

However, the courts are confirming this mandatory day of rest of employees. It is important to understand what this means for you and your workplace rights and obligations.

Has your voice been recorded without your knowledge?

When you talk to a business representative on the phone, chances are you'll hear an advisory that the call is being recorded.

On some calls, however, you don't hear that warning - or don't hear it soon enough - and your voice gets recorded without your consent.

These illegal recordings are more than just an annoyance. They're a serious violation of your privacy rights.

Protecting your telephone privacy rights: Compensation for illegal call recordings

We've all been on calls with telemarketers, banks, collection companies and other businesses when we hear the standard line: "This call is being recorded for business purposes." Call recordings have become so standard that we often don't even notice this warning.

But what if your voice gets recorded without your consent? What if the caller fails to inform you that you're being recorded - or only tells you after the conversation has already begun?

This situation is more common than you might think. And if it has happened to you, you could be entitled to compensation.

Rooting out racial discrimination in the workplace

Most people are shocked when they experience discrimination or racial hatred in the workplace. In 2017, it should be expected and assumed that other employees and supervisors would not behave in such a manner, but it happens with some frequency.

The challenge for many is to distinguish whether or not they have a valid legal claim of workplace discrimination. There is a distinction, to be sure, between one person behaving badly and a company establishing a system of discrimination.

Chicago Strikes a Blow Against LGBT Workplace Discrimination

Under the Civil Rights movement, there are numerous protected groups. Many people of different faiths, ages and belief systems have come under the protection of the Civil Rights Act.

However, one group that has not been afforded the legal protection of the Civil Rights Act is the LGBT community – until now.
