Woman allegedly fired for calling out racial discrimination

If you've worked in charity work or the nonprofit sector, then you probably know that even well-intentioned enterprises often suffer from the same bureaucratic breakdowns and discipline issues as many other sectors. Just because a particular organization is charitable does not necessarily mean that they treat employees fairly.

Can an employer fire someone for political reasons?

In recent months, the political conversation in America has grown very tense, and demonstrators have chosen to rally and protest a number of politically divisive issues.

Clearly, these are very difficult things to discuss fairly and professionally, but are also important to understand.

Are attentive drivers the minority?

According to the National Safety Council, motor vehicle deaths have risen by 14 percent since 2014. The reasons for the increase are a matter of significant discussion among safety experts.

Part of the discussion is whether one of the tools used to curb distracted driving deaths may actually be contributing to them.

Employment discrimination by appearance

Employers are allowed to conduct themselves in any number of horrible ways. Some employers regularly make stupid decisions when it comes to work policies, hiring and firing decisions and more. The law does not protect workers from every bad decision made by an incompetent boss. The law does, however, protect employees who are denied overtime, or who are harassed, bullied or discriminated against for a protected reason.

This conflict was at the heart of a recent negotiation between a New Jersey medical center and a nurses' union.
