Forest Service to address employee harassment

The newly-appointed director of the national forest service has promised to focus on reducing workplace sexual harassment and other issues at the agency. The director said that she would make changes to existing programs and put new systems in place to promote the safety and comfort of employees. New Jersey workers might gain from an understanding of the claims and facts alleged in the case.

Hiring discrimination remains a challenge for African-Americans

The job market in New Jersey and other parts of the country is just as difficult for African-American candidates today as it was 25 years ago according to a study published recently by the National Academy of Sciences. Researchers from Harvard University, Northwestern University and Norway's Institute for Social Research came to this sobering conclusion after submitting 55,842 applications for 26,326 positions.

The gig economy and anti-discrimination laws

Many workers act as independent contractors in New Jersey and across the country. This rise of the "gig economy" has led people to teach classes online, drive ridesharing cars and take up pet-sitting jobs. In fact, nearly one out of every seven jobs taken by Americans involves these types of contingent employment situations. However, these independent contractors may lack significant protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of race, age, gender or disability.
