Uber answers more charges of workplace discrimination

With only two months left in 2017, Uber Technologies, Inc. may be eager for this troubling year to end. The ride-sharing company has dealt with extensive negative press in recent months, much of it stemming from accusations of mistreatment of employees. Wisconsin employees who feel harassed or who face workplace discrimination may be interested in the latest allegations facing the company and its administration.

Doctor brings wrongful termination suit to Wisconsin hospital

Sexual harassment reporting takes courage, says Gretchen Carlson

A former Fox News anchor has spoken out about her experience with problems in the workplace. She claims that the former CEO of the media agency subjected her to sexual harassment.

Family and Medical Leave Act: Preventing interference

Federal law protects employees who have to take foreseeable or sudden leave from their jobs. A law called the Family and Medical Leave Act gives employees who meet certain qualifications up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave from the job every 12 months without endangering their employment status. If an employer in Wisconsin prevents an employee from taking FMLA, or retaliates against the employee for taking the leave, that is known as FMLA interference.
