The importance of an employee handbook

Many small companies might not think that they need an employee handbook. With only a few employees, they can discuss policies in person easily enough and be flexible about some things like working from home or taking time off. However, that is not sustainable as a company grows and, even at a small size, a handbook with well-documented policies and procedures can protect businesses in the event that a problem occurs with even one employee down the road.

New York leads the way for equal pay

Most people in New York are familiar with the recent success that the women's United States soccer team has had, winning yet another World Cup. Their success, however, has come despite the fact that they are paid a mere pittance of what their male counterparts earn. This is allowed to happen even though the women's team has been more successful on the field than the men's team. Ongoing calls to change this are being heard by New York City's Mayor and New York State's Governor.

Qualifying for leave under FMLA

Like most working professionals in New York, you likely take your attendance in the workplace very seriously, and avoid missing work as much as you are able. Yet life often presents situations where having to take time away from work is unavoidable. Typically, such situations are due to family or medical issues involving you or members of your immediate. Your fears about having to miss work for an extended period of time are not unwarranted; many of those that come to us here at Raff & Becker, LLP share the same concerns. You will be happy to learn, however, that your employment status may be protected under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
