It’s Labor Day in the U.S. as I write this post. To my own amazement, I’ve spent most of the past month truly relaxing — reading lots of books, playing tennis, running, hanging out with my family and eating food I mostly shouldn’t — scones and donuts for breakfast, BLT s and burgers for lunch

The New York City law is excellent and a credit to the City law makers because it provides genuine protection against sexual harassment.

When I told my mother that my husband-to-be was a consultant, she asked, “Does he work?” Mom was stuck in the mindset of Jobs 1.0. She had been in the work force when the knowledge economy was just emerging, entrepreneurs were considered a little strange, the only “real” professions were law and medicine, labor meant industrial and trade unions, seniority reigned, and careers involved step-by-predictable-step up the rungs of a tall ladder. In the Jobs 1.0 era, consulting was the fall-back face-saver for people who had lost their jobs

The Wait A Second! blog recently wrote about a new sexual harassment case in the Second Circuit. The case, Kaytor v. Electric Boat Corp.,is unique because it involves not only sex, but threats of violence and what is more amazing is that the case was once dismissed.

Five years from now, will we look back on the dismal unemployment that we’re suffering on Labor Day 2010 and see this year as the good old days? Within today’s official unemployment statistics hides the true cost of decades of economic mismanagement: Historically unprecedented levels of unemployment and underemployment. The Great Recession that officially ended in 2009 has left millions of Americans without jobs for longer than the worst economic period in modern history — the early 1980s

In executive compensation disputes, an executive can gain substantial leverage if the subject compensation, typically a bonus, can be classified as “wages” within the meaning of NY Labor Code section 190(1). If the bonus constitutes “wages,” then the bonus is protected against any meddling by the employer and must be paid in full pursuant to section 193 of the Labor Code. In New York, and most other states, wages are protected and must be paid promptly.

In Pucino v. Verizon Communications, Inc. (“Verizon”), the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (which covers New York, Connecticut and Vermont) reversed a decision by a New York federal court granting summary judgment in favor of Verizon on a former employee’s gender-based hostile work environment claims.
Following the announcement of the Tribunals Service that there has been a staggering increase in tribunal claims, 56% to be precise, the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) has announced the results of its own survey which related to the experience of representatives (both claimant and respondent) in the employment tribunals. The survey which sought to canvass opinion on suggestions for reform of the system, revealed a substantial level of dissatisfaction with the current performance of employment tribunals
Tribunals Service: Satisfactory?
A recent decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that awards of personal injury and injury to feelings relating to a tortious act (such as a failure to make reasonable adjustments in a disability discrimination claim) that pre-dates the termination of employment are not taxable and, consequently, should not be subject to ‘grossing up’. This case did not change the existing law, but the correct approach to tax and grossing up, both on termination payments and on tribunal awards, is an area that often causes confusion for employment lawyers
