Spotting sexual harassment in the workplace in Rhode Island

Sexual harassment to this day is still an issue in the workplace. Even with all of the laws in place protecting employees from this crime, people still find it necessary to harass others sexually. Sexual harassment can occur on purpose or innocently, which is when people tell jokes or don't mean any harm by what they say.

Staffing company for employment commission sued

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against its own staffing company, Diverse Lynx. The company is based in Princeton, New Jersey, and operates as an IT staffing firm. The EEOC filed the suit because it claims the firm did not recommend an older applicant for a job because "age will matter."

The most important benefit, for many, was the right to take 12 weeks of unpaid leave off to recover from childbirth, deal with the illness of a sick relative, or deal with their own illness.
