Wisconsin Walmart faces workplace discrimination accusations

It's the store that greets you with a friendly smile and a sticker. The giant retailer has a long history of employing older and disabled workers, but one location has been charged with failing to accommodate an employee's needs. A recent incident in a Wisconsin Walmart location has led to allegations of workplace discrimination due to the company's treatment of a long time employee. 

Wisconsin gravedigger sues for wrongful termination

A person who reports the wrongdoing of others on the job should be protected from retaliation. The law supports this notion, and protections exist for whistleblowers. In Wisconsin, one man was fired from his job, he says, after reporting the improper conduct of his fellow employees. He has brought a lawsuit for wrongful termination against the deathcare company. 

Good policy cuts down sexual harassment claims

An employer has a duty to ensure that employees feel safe in the workplace and that discrimination claims are taken seriously. Many employers make wise decisions when they anticipate issues beforehand and create workplace policies that protect individuals from sexual harassment. Businesses in Wisconsin and across the United States can take preventive measures to reduce unfair bias in the workplace. Employees can then depend on the company to enforce anti-discrimination and harassment measures so that the workplace remains a positive environment for all. 

A history of wage and hour laws in Wisconsin

The concept of the minimum wage stretches back over a hundred years in this country. Wisconsin jumped on the bandwagon early and has a rich history with wage and hour laws. From the meager beginnings of 22 cents an hour, to today's talks of a $15 an hour payout, the rules governing payments to employees have certainly evolved over the last century. 

Workplace discrimination charges for Wisconsin care center

An employer should offer employees reasonable accommodations for their temporary disability needs. In fact, these types of adjustments are part of the law of the land in Wisconsin. Pregnancy is considered a type of temporary disability, so a company that offers light duty for other types of disabilities should also offer the same for its pregnant workers. One company is facing a workplace discrimination suit for allegedly violating a worker's rights to reasonable accommodations.
