Legal Issues Impacting Employers & Employees

research and legal discussionEmployers, business owners, and partners aim to have a good workplace environment for their employees because this can translate into productivity, efficiency, and, therefore, profit. They are also interested in maintaining a respectful relationship with their employees, ensuring that no codes or contracts involving authority, information, or property, are violated.

On the other hand, the interests of employees are equally important. As an employee, you want to have a safe, fair, and healthy workplace free from discrimination and workplace abuse. Ryan Van Osdol of Business Law Group, LLC is a highly experienced and competent Waukegan employment law attorney.

We are here to support employees and employers who seek a fair workplace system that does not tolerate any form of discrimination against people based on disability, sex, race, or sexual orientation.

Federal Employee Rights

Federal employees have the reputation that they have immunity from termination. People tend to think that federal employees have the ideal workspace free from minority discrimination and whistleblower reprisal.

C57I6655 300x200 Waukegan Employment Law AttorneyWhile itโ€™s factual that federal employees have certain legal protections that private employees donโ€™t have, they also face a very complicated administrative system for complaints. It can be very difficult for federal employees to resolve their grievances with their institutions.

Federal employees are not immune to workplace harassment, discrimination, denial of deserved promotions or salary increases, wrongful termination, or whistleblower reprisal. They still deserve competent legal help that can fix the wrong in their workplace.

But the main problem is the complex system that federal employees have to go through in order to pursue a workplace complaint successfully. But these complaints can be the difference between an abusive workplace system and a functional, healthy one.

Current and Former Members of the Armed Forces

Even with all the institutional privileges given to people who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, they are still vulnerable to unfair practices and discrimination in the workplace. As fewer people work for the military each year, those who attempt to return to their civilian lives can find themselves disadvantaged in maintaining their new careers and securing employment.

We aim to help current and former members of the Armed Forces have a better chance of upholding their rights to protection against discrimination and maltreatment in the employment environment, whether in federal or private organizations.

Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act

2. Right to be free from discrimination based on military history.

4. Right to the same level of employment advancement opportunities as those of people without military history.
5. Right to not be punished in terms of seniority or job position due to military service.
6. Right to enforce these rights without discrimination, retaliation, or reprisal based on military history.
