Their seemingly endless bouts of circling and calling, calling and circling fill me with a feeling of foreboding. Whe

What Is Color Discrimination And How Do I Prove It?
Even if your harasser is the same race, you can still complain about discrimination if they’re biased due to your color. Basically, color means the shade of your skin. If someone of your same race favors lighter or darker skinned employees, then that could be color discrimination. If your employer has 15 or more employees, then color discrimination is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Ac
Everything You Wanted To Know About Your Employee Handbook
In most states, your company handbook isn’t a contract. They don’t have to follow their own procedures. However, some employers are starting to make employees sign them and add things like an agreement to arbitrate all claims against the employer or a waiver of jury trial. You will want to read your handbook and understand your rights and responsibilities. Sections you’ll want to pay extra care
Occupy Your Workplace: Changes To Employment Laws That Would Make a Difference
Just like the Tea Party on the other side, the Occupy Wall Street movement is on the brink of having real political power. Everyone wants to know -- what do they want? What changes will they ask for?

Occupy Wall Street
Before Occupy Wall Street, there was clear consensus and proof that Wall Street traders and big bank mortgage lenders were responsible for the debt crisis we're seeing around the world. There were also a lot of people who thought that giving bailouts to the same banks that caused the problem was not okay. There were also a lot of people who were upset when those same banks continued to han

There's another that Perry somehow fell into a wormhole that ejac
