There is no denying the holidays can be stressful, especially when you are at work. Some common holiday stressors include:
Wisconsin residents have a reasonable right to privacy in their personal lives, which is established by and respected under the law. At work, however, there are far fewer privacy protections. Still, less protection does not mean none, so it is still possible for an employer to violate employment law by violating a worker's privacy.
If you are experiencing discrimination at work, you may feel helpless about how to proceed. Should you simply try to ignore the discriminatory behavior and actions to move forward in your work without rocking the boat? Should you alert your company's human resources department to the issue? Should you quit your job?
You had certain aspirations when you took your current job. However, situations change, sometimes putting goals out of reach.
A group of out-of-state fast food workers are set to receive thousands of dollars of unpaid wages. The decision comes after an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor determined that the company underpaid its workers. While this particular issue took place in a different state, these types of employment law violations are sadly not uncommon in Wisconsin.
Entrepreneurs embarking on their first startup experience might expect to spend more time on the creative aspect of their businesses and less on the nitty-gritty legal side of things.

This includes writing comprehensive and enforceable contracts.
A Wisconsin woman's experience was apparently the springboard for a recent lawsuit filed against Walmart. Filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the suit claims that the company engaged in workplace discrimination against its pregnant employees. The company has denied the claims, citing its accommodation policies.
When you think of retaliation in the workplace, you may assume it is an obvious and immediate action. For example, you may think of an employee reporting an unsafe working condition and then receiving threats of termination. Another example is an employee reporting sexual harassment and getting subsequently fired.
