Wrongful termination and discrimination cases move ahead

It has been several years now since the Americans with Disabilities Act went into effect. Since then, numerous workers with disabilities in New York and across the United States have expected that they should be treated with respect and of equal worth to their non-disabled counterparts. More and more companies are finding new ways to offer accommodations to people so that they can adequately perform their job duties even with the presence of a disability.

Overtime pay in New York

When you accept a job with a company in New York, there are a few different ways that you might be paid for your work. Some people have jobs that earn them money in the form of commission. These people are generally in sales positions. Other employees might receive a set amount of money each pay period regardless of the number of hours that they work or are expected to work. These people are often referred to as salaried employees.

Employees in New York and elsewhere are federally protected against labor practices that can harm and exploit them. You may have heard about the problem of sex trafficking, but labor trafficking may be a new term to you. Unfortunately, this form of modern-day slavery is prevalent throughout the U.S., especially among undocumented immigrants.
