Wisconsin city council weighs sexual harassment policies

Some people are asking whether the city council should be held to the same level of professional accountability as other city employees. The issue has come up in the Madison, Wisconsin city meetings before. The question is, are city council members employees or are they some other type of worker? A recent news story reports that some feel it is time for them to be considered employees and not exempt from employer sexual harassment trainings.

Workplace discrimination guidelines for high status workers

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 laid some important guidelines for workers. Title VII of the federal law protects workers against workplace discrimination. But high-ranking workers in Wisconsin, such as executive and law firm partners, may be wondering whether their position is considered employer or employee. A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Clackamas case has laid out guidelines for courts to determine whether a worker is an employee or an employer, and therefore whether the individual is protected against certain forms of workplace discrimination. 

Disabled? Do you know your employment rights?

You may have been born with a disability, or it may have developed later on in life. Either way, your disability should not prevent you from having a fulfilling career. If you have a disability, you are legally protected against workplace discrimination that can keep you from where you want to go.
