Union members protest proposed cuts to benefits from Hilton

For New York union members who do not believe they are being treated fairly when employers are negotiating a new contract or are failing to live up to the requirements of a current contract, it is imperative to understand labor law, the right to protest and how to negotiate a settlement to the dispute. Workers have alternatives when collective bargaining and various tactics such as picketing and even encouraging a boycott of the business are ways to make certain that their complaints are heard. Having legal assistance with these matters is vital to any situation.

How does FMLA address a serious health issue?

New York workers have the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to provide various protections and rights. One of the reasons for taking the time off accorded to workers under FMLA is if there is a serious health condition being suffered by a worker or a family member of the worker. Understanding how the law defines "serious health condition" and the medical certification that is required to prove that it was necessary and applicable to FMLA is essential when seeking to use this benefit.

Understanding how FMLA is useful to eligible workers

New Yorkers should be aware that U.S. labor law gives them the right to take advantage of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), should the need arise. With FMLA, there are certain employee benefits available to take time off for a variety of health-related and personal reasons without fear of losing the job. There are eligibility requirements with FMLA, but once a person is eligible, he or she can use it. Amid these benefits, it is important to know what benefits FMLA provides.

HIPPA, nondiscrimination requirements and health factors

Union members in New York should know certain facts about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), how it works and when they are shielded from discrimination. Since health coverage has become such a hot topic and its status is growing more confusing, having coverage as part of an agreement for employee benefits is more important. Knowing facts about HIPAA is vital.
