An African American who was hired on a second-grade teacher by administrators at Larchmont Elementary School in 2016, filed a lawsuit against her employer and colleagues on May 29.

Have a clear understanding of employment at will

When you enter the workforce, it's important for you to know what at-will employment means. Why? If you are ever hired for a job where at-will employment is an option, you need to protect yourself.

This includes protection from retaliation by an employer. Here's how you can prove a wage and hour retaliation claim against your employer.

The Equal Pay Act is an important piece of legislation that helps protect the pay that employees receive.

The way you view sexual harassment may impact your case
