Delay in awards for SEC whistleblower program

When an employee in Minnesota decides to "blow the whistle" on an employer for illegal actions, there is the general understanding that the employee will be protected after filing such a claim. Moreover, in some instances, a whistleblower's rights also include the ability to collect an award related to the claim. However, whistleblowers might have to wait some time until they are paid off.

Athletic director of UMN accused of sexual harassment

As previous posts discussed, sexual harassment in the workplace can be a very uncomfortable situation for employees, and it is often a difficult incident to discuss or report. However, these are incidents that should be reported and addressed. When employees believe that they are a victim of sexual harassment in the work environment, it is important that the employees understand that they have options and recourses available to them.

Who can make an ADA violation claim?

When a person with disabilities is hired by an employer, or a current employee develops a disability, employers in Minnesota and elsewhere need to take certain steps to better accommodate the individual. If an employer fails to carryout such action, this could be considered a violation of the Americans with Disability Act, more commonly referred to as the "ADA."
