Discrimination trending idea

I recently had discrimination along with other issues with a company I had worked for for 14 years and had a case against them. Well I was informed that I couldn't file a few of issues against the employer because of the amount of employees. I don't care if you have 1 employee or 500 employees discrimination is discrimination and with laws like that in place employers know they can get away with treating those employees... more »

The ADEA and age discrimination

How is it that we have a law to avoid age discrimination but every application for employment is allowed to ask the date you graduated and other questions that tell your age? This only allows employers to discriminate without tell-tale signs. All dates should be banned from all employer application processes. Educational Institutions can verify graduation without dates. 

You cannot enforce a law that denies discrimination,... more »

Investigate Third-Party Complaints

The DOL is making enforcement of federal laws impossible by refusing to investigate third-party complaints regarding wage and hour violations/timekeeping violations.  Even though the complainant has not personally experienced a timekeeping violation does not mean it has not occurred.  Many employees, especially those who are at-will employees, are afraid to bring forth a complaint for fear of losing their jobs and benefits. ... more »

Fair Wage Complainant Protection

Home care workers need a safe and effective way to report wage theft and unfair wage practices. Due to the isolative nature of home care employment through third company employers, workers have no formal path to sharing their concerns with fellow workers or seeking relief in a way that protects them from employer retribution. DOL needs resources to support the states in following through with investigations and hold employers... more »

Focus and Communication

It's imperative, in my humble opinion, that agencies playing major roles in protecting minorities seeking federally funded jobs, be more responsive and accountable to requests for information. The ARB for example, has been loathful in its response(s) for information regarding adjudication(s). Their website updates are painfully slow! The need to rid the nation of  discrimination in employment, past and present,  must... more »

Enforce Equality in Federal Employment Edited

In order to create an equality and inclusion in the federal workforce major issues with the EEO processes within the agencies need to be addressed as well as blatant bias within the EEOC. 1 major issue with the agency's EEO process is the agency failure to follow MD 110 regarding investigations. Investigator hired by the agency are bias and sabotage investigations. The structure of EEO within agencies need to be independent.... more »

Hold Employers & TPAs Responsible for Miscomms Harming Employees

As an advocate I see more and more employers contracting out their leave and interactive accommodations process to third party administrators, and attempting to wash their hands completely clean from any involvement. Oftentimes, employees get shuffled between the third party administrator and the employer, and basically they get lost in the shuffle of paperwork, and end up either quitting because the process is too discouraging ... more »

Harassment in the Workplace

Too many times, any sort of harassment that happens in the workplace gets brushed aside. Still to this day, comments towards others gets brushed off with a laugh because too many employees and employers think nothing of the nature of their statements. And, when employees do go to their higher ups, they are told to either grow thicker skin, or that what might have taken place was not important due to the amount of money... more »
