Contractor faces judgment in dispute with labor union

New York City is a hotbed for the construction of glossy, expensive construction projects and landmark buildings. These building will often house notable companies and entities. One sticking point that is often a problem for the owners of these valuable pieces of land is dealing with the potential allegations of labor law violations and other issues with union members. For the union members, it is essential to have a competent union representation for their labor union. Without it, there is a major chance for various abuses to be done. It also provides protection for wages and benefits.

Lawsuit filed by New York EMS for disparity in employee benefits

In New York City, the emergency responders are a crucial part of the city's landscape. This includes the fire department, law enforcement and emergency medical service. While each of their entities has a labor union to protect them, there is a perceived disparity in how they are protected with employee benefits as well as other issues. If there is a belief that other departments are receiving better employee benefits, there is the right to seek information regarding that and to request that the same benefits be accorded to all departments.

FMLA and the number of employees and distance rules

New York workers who meet the criteria for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) have the right to take time off for a variety of reasons. However, there are times that the criteria itself can be confusing and workers might not know exactly what they mean. There are numerous foundational requirements to be able to use FMLA. One is the number of employees and distance from the employee's worksite at which the counted workers will be located. If there are violations made by the employer, the worker will have the right to have the union seek to get them what they are entitled to with help from a law firm experienced in representing unions in employment law.

Two New York news sites join labor union

Some New York employees who seek to join a union meet resistance from the employer. This does not automatically mean that they will not be able to join. To have union representation when there is a disagreement whether the employer will allow it, it is sometimes necessary to take other steps. The benefits to labor relations for union members are many, so it is beneficial to move forward with the process. If there is a problem with the formation of a union or the joining of an established union, having experienced help from a labor attorney is vital.
