Policies are great but employers must ensure manager and HR compliance in order to present a solid defense to employee discrimination claims.
In a real game changer for employers and employees, a recent federal court ruling disavows application of the tender back rule to employment cases under Title VII and the Equal Pay Act.
Federal appellate court's ruling that Title VII prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation sets stage for showdown in U.S. Supreme Court.
The EEOC has issued a new Fact Sheet addressing bathroom access rights for transgender employees.
Employer learns lesson the hard way… firing an employee because of his “tone of voice” can be direct evidence of retaliation!
EEOC action emphasizes enforcement of Title VII protections for transgender employees allegedly discriminated against in the workplace.
