Understanding Your Employment Rights

Our blog provides articles related to discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, hostile work environment, overtime pay and other areas involving employment law. While our blog posts are not intended as legal advice, they can help you gain a basic understanding of employment law and the legal system. Generally speaking, a greater understanding of employment rights tends to defuse the stress and feeling of overwhelm that many people experience when dealing with legal matters.

Protecting Your Social Media Privacy Rights at Work

Recognizing that employers may wrongfully use an applicant or employee’s personal social media activity against a worker, New York has joined a number of other states across the country by enacting specific legislation protecting the privacy rights of employees and job seekers. Signed earlier this year by Governor Kathy Hochul, the amendments to the New York Labor Law went into effect on March 12, 2024. The amendments target personal social media activity, defined as “accounts or profiles on an electronic medium where users may create, share and view user-generated content.” The amendments apply to most employers, other than police, fire and corrections departments, and community supervision agencies.
