Unpaid interns mostly lack employee rights

In cities like Chaska, Minnesota, and elsewhere, it’s not uncommon for people to suggest applying for an internship as a way to gain valuable work experience and possible employment. After all, unpaid interns often contribute meaningfully to the business while proving that they are committed to their position.

Some pay methods may infringe on employee rights

After deducting fees like state and federal taxes, most workers have a clear understanding of how much money they will take home from any given paycheck. Whether they’re paid on salary or hourly wages, employees in Minnesota and throughout the country can also typically count on receiving no less than minimum wage.

Fighting for ENDA

Millions of workers all across the country are protected against employment-related discrimination issues by state and federal legislation. In fact, Minnesota employees can be confident that they are protected under the law if they face workplace harassment or other forms of mistreatment on the grounds of their race, religion and/or sex, among other traits. Though, current federal employment law legislation continues to leave an entire demographic of the American workforce vulnerable to prejudicial workplace practices. That is why some LGBT-rights groups, employee advocates and progressive representatives are promoting the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) through congress.

Employees return to work after 2-year contract dispute

In many instances, employee unions represent Minnesota workers as a collective force, which may increase bargaining power and sway companies to meet the requests of their staff. There are times, however, when contract negotiations and other employment law conversations deteriorate and workers face serious consequences.

Wrongful termination deposition may expose state senate scandal

Unless some sort of settlement agreement is established soon, the Minnesota Senate could receive the type and amount of attention its members would surely rather avoid. And at the heart of the potentially scandalous issue is one wrongful termination lawsuit involving a staff member and any number of state legislatures.
