Harassment and retaliation present in one police department

Minnesota law enforcement takes its duty to protect and serve the public seriously. The men and women responsible for upholding the law do so on a daily basis, sometimes even putting themselves in harm's way to keep others safe. It is these officers' job to know regulations inside and out so that they can effectively interpret and enforce protocol in just about any situation. However, it seems that some of those in the police force may find it more difficult to recognize the law when it comes to how they interact with fellow officers.

Could workplace wellness plans lead to workplace discrimination?

An encouraging trend in American health has taken hold in recent years, promoting accessibility and prevention as standards for care. People throughout the state of Minnesota, and across the country, are taking control over their health and healthcare options by showing support for more affordable, incentive-based medical plans. And as new laws put in place by the Obama administration begin to go into effect, some companies are already encouraging their employees to join workplace wellness programs. Some early studies do suggest that workers and employers alike may enjoy long-term benefits from such incentive-driven health plans, but there is also evidence that these same programs could lead to a new form of workplace discrimination.

An aging workforce may face discrimination in Minnesota

Minnesota employees, along with workers all across the country, are protected under the law from a number of illegal discriminatory practices. Companies are not allowed to deny or terminate employment based solely on factors like a worker's race, gender, disability or a number of other characteristics. Age is one such quality that cannot be used to determine an older person's competency or desirability as a current or prospective employee. However, age discrimination in the workplace may be on the rise in the U.S., reinforcing the need for employment law guidelines to protect older employees.

Minnesota bill aims to combat workplace bullying

At one point or another in most people's careers, they've dealt with coworkers-not to mention management-that were difficult to get along with. Personalities can clash, egos can compete, and insecurities can contribute to a working environment that is less than hospitable. What happens, though, when icy attitudes and professional snobbery turn into something malicious? Unfortunately for thousands of employees throughout the state of Minnesota, and all across the country, that can be a difficult question to answer. While many workers can identify and address forms of job discrimination involving factors like gender and race, different types of bullying may be condoned or go unreported in the workplace.
