Employment Law Highlights and Updates...
** The federal agency which oversees claims of discrimination in the workplace, EEOC, offers a voluntary claim mediation process. The mediation program is unique and useful, in our experience. And it possesses a high success rate in resolving discrimination claims of all types. This mediation process is arguably the best aspect of the services provided more generally by EEOC. In western Missouri, and the entire state of Kansas, EEOC administers federal employment discrimination law from its regional office in Kansas City, Kansas. Its phone number is 800.669.4000. This number is a national toll-free number, from which a caller may be routed to their appropriate area office on a regional level. The agency's national website is found at www.eeoc.gov.
** The recent enactment by Congress of a Health Care bill provides that commencing on September 23, 2010, adult children through the date of their 26th birthday are eligible for health-care coverage as a dependent on a parent's employer-provided health insurance plan (unless the adult child is married). This element of Health Care reform is one of the first aspects of the legislation to become legally effective. Recent statistics indicate that several million families have take advantage of this provision to insure their young-adult family members.
** Claims of illegal employment discrimination or harassment must be raised in a legal sense, in the proper legal forum, within very short time frames. Courts do not advertise this fact for the benefit of the public, as they lack funding to assist the public in an informational sense. Nor do applicable public agencies, as they also lack funding to advise the public of the time limitations to act on their job rights. Many persons are unaware of this reality. Laws protecting individuals from workplace mistreatment contain exceedingly short 'statutes of limitations.' In other words, someone with a claim of unlawful treatment or discrimination at work must act quite rapidly - within six months in many cases - to make their legal complaint. Claims of discrimination or harassment in the workplace typically must be raised first with the applicable federal or state Agency before they are brought in Court. The deadline to make such agencies aware of your legal concern about your treatment at work is often six months from the date the unlawful treatment occurs.
** Normally, a claim of workplace discrimination or harassment must first be made to a state or federal agency, and not to the Court. The discrimination laws created by state and federal government require this procedure. This process allows claims to be considered by a governmental agency before a Court hears the case.
