Basics of religious freedom in the workplace

As we noted in a prior post, the July jobs report was a promising sign of economic activity. More than 250,000 jobs were created last month, and the number was substantially more than the 180,000 jobs that were expected. Indeed, it is a positive sign when people are going to work. However, the possibility of these employees being discriminated against because of their religious beliefs is still real.

Tips for pregnant employees

Maintaining a job in today’s economy may be easier than it has in past years. However, if you are a pregnant woman, the road may still be considerably difficult. This is because not every employer understands the rules governing pregnant workers and may take actions that are against the law. Because of this, it is important for pregnant workers to protect themselves against unscrupulous employers.

In our prior posts, we have highlighted the importance of pregnant employees and job seekers to know their rights in the workplace. While the nation’s economy steadily improves and more jobs become available, pregnant employees may still be subject to discrimination and other forms of wrongful treatment in the workplace.

Strong job growth in July, but many are still treated unfairly

While it may not have been mentioned during the political conventions, the U.S. job market continues to grow; even if it is not as robust as expected. The July jobs report was released last week, and the national economy added 225,000 jobs last month. The unemployment rate remained at 4.9 percent.

The problems with working 'off the clock'

While the major political conventions haven’t mentioned it, the job market is slowing slightly. This may mean that companies are ambivalent about hiring given the uncertainty of the economy, or they have reached capacity (temporarily). Because of this, some new employees may feel pressure to make a good impression in order to maintain job security.
