5 Most Common Reasonable Accommodations for Religious Beliefs
The following list includes 5 common reasonable accommodations for religious beliefs that employees request from their employers
Defamation in the Workplace
There is a growing need for employers to monitor what and how they communicate in the workplace. What seems to the employer as a fair constructive criticism can potentially open a legal claim against the business. This is especially true as related to reviews and terminations.
Why Employers (and Employees) Need to Pay Attention to the Fair Labor Standards Act
Recently, General Counsel, P.C. is getting more (and more) calls regarding alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). And, more often than not, the employer is in violation of the FLSA and subject to potential liability (to one or more employees).

Due process is important for all federal workers
There has been much discussion on the topic of the firing of federal employees. Some still try to sell the old line that "you can't fire a federal employee." This is, to put it bluntly, hogwash.
What are they thinking?
The Senate has passed a budget. For federal employees the subtext of that passage may be this; however bad you thought it has been, if this were enacted, it would get much worse. The budget would cut $496 billion civilian agencies over the next ten years.
