My note –

I noticed an advertisement for Sokolove – an attorneys group that had a list of common practices by employers which are illegal, including not paying overtime, not allowing breaks, keeping employees off the clock through their lunch break while having them work and not paying properly or not abiding by the laws through shady practices like making actual employees appear to subcontractors.

Anyway, these are the State Fair Employment Practice Agencies for each state where questions can be answered, claims can be made, information can be found. There is information concerning disability rights but also fair employment practices that are the law. As much as businesses must abide by the law, many don’t when it comes to employees and disabilities, fair employment practices and non-discrimination. It probably pays to get a lawyer for any serious abuses because by the time the government agencies do anything, it has typically been many years later. I’m not suggesting the attorneys mentioned above, it came on the news show I was watching and it came to my mind, that especially when things are economically difficult – more employment abuses occur.

Where employers have refused to put their promised portion of 401k matching funds into employees benefits as they have been doing since last year, it is an abuse of their contract with every employee that has been robbed of those funds. That promise to make matching funds for employee contributions is just as much a contract as any executive’s salary contract.

Just a thought.
