Labor and Union Law?
Before labor unions, American workers were often forced to work long hours for little pay and in dangerous conditions. When workers galvanized, they were able to bring about changes that increased the health and safety of all workers. The changes made by the unions of the early 20th century are still enjoyed by workers of today—that is why the law protects workers who seek to form unions. However, many employers are reluctant to allow their workers to unionize. At White, Ricotta & Marks, P.C., we take action to enforce workers’ rights.

Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.
