What if my employer does not pay me for my work?

When an employer does not treat employees fairly, it can seem unfair and hopeless all at the same time. This is particularly true when an employer refuses or fails to pay you fairly for your work. Fortunately, there are legal remedies when an employer does not compensate an employee. If you believe that your employer is not paying you fairly, you can take some simple steps to begin working towards a fair resolution.

Steps to take when you encounter workplace discrimination

Workplace discrimination continues to be a serious problem, despite the many advances we have made in employee protections over the years. It is never pleasant to experience or confront, and many employees do not know exactly how to respond when they encounter discrimination in the workplace. If you experience discrimination in the workplace, you have a duty and opportunity to make your workplace safer by standing up for your rights — but how exactly does an employee do this?

Nurses off the clock are still under the microscope

You certainly understand the need for society to hold nurses to a high professional standard. While you feel proud to have such an important profession, the weight of the expectations you must meet probably get to you sometimes. 

Don't fight the battle alone when seeking unpaid wages

You work hard, and you deserve the money you earned. This is a simple concept, yet some employers still take advantage of employees and break laws by not paying earned wages. If you believe that you are the victim of an employer keeping your earned wages from you, it is not a battle you have to fight alone.

Does FMLA still apply in Arizona?

A Scottsdale woman is suing her former employer after they allegedly fired her for exercising her rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). According the woman, her employer was repeatedly uncooperative when she exercised her rights to medical leave, before ultimately firing her, possibly illegally. Her fight clearly demonstrates the great value of employee protections granted under FMLA.

Health care providers under fire for treating employees unfairly

If you suffer from a medical condition that affects your ability to perform certain tasks, you may have some protections available through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC, among other things, files charges against employers who do not comply properly with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Protection against retaliatory firing

As an employee, there may be times when you must act in accordance with your own conscience and against the interests of your employer. While employers retain the rights to address any concerns they have with their employees' job performances, there are a number of activities that enjoy government protection from employer retaliation.

Do I have to answer all questions in an interview?

Searching for a job can feel like a Herculean task in many job markets these days. For some job searchers, it can become difficult to know just what is reasonable to submit to as part of the interview process, especially if an employer begins to ask questions that seem unrelated to the job prospect at hand. While many potential employees are willing to divulge just about any personal information out of desperation for employment, an employer may actually be seriously overstepping the bounds of what is acceptable to ask.
