What's the Family and Medical Leave Act?

If you or a loved one is suffering from a medical condition or if you're about to become a new parent, you may be considering taking time off work. Thanks to the Family and Medical Leave Act, you may be able to take time off work and have your job protected while you do.

Age discrimination in the workplace

If you're an older or even a very young worker, you need to understand what age discrimination is. Age discrimination is discrimination that is strictly based on your age, not your abilities. For instance, if you apply to be a teller at a bank at age 21 with the same skills as someone who is 41, you shouldn't be turned away because you're younger.

You can protect yourself from harassment in the workplace

If you're struggling with harassment in the workplace, you need to know about the laws surrounding workplace harassment. Under the federal laws and Department of Labor's policies, harassment of employees based on religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, color, race, national origin, disability, age, parental status, genetic information or sexual orientation is illegal.
