• In determining whether there is a duty to arbitrate a dispute, the courts should not examine the merits of the underlying grievance, even if it appears to be frivolous. • In labor contracts with an arbitration clause, arbitrability is presumed unless there is positive assurance that the arbitration clause is not susceptible to an interpretation that covers the dispute. Doubts should be resolve in favor of coverage. • As long as an arbitration award is based on the bargaining agreement, a court should enforce the award without examination. • In interpreting the labor agreement, the arbitrator is not limited to the words of the contract.
In the event that an employee has a sensible conviction that discipline or other unfavorable outcomes may come about because of what he or she says, the employee has the right to demand union representation. Management is not required to educate the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employee's obligation to know and demand. At the point when the employee makes the demand for a union representative to be available management has three alternatives: it can quit addressing until the representative arrives; it can cancel the interview or, it can tell the employee that it will cancel the interview unless the employee deliberately surrenders his/her rights to a union representative. Employers will regularly attest that the main part of a union representative in an investigatory interview is to watch the discourse. The Supreme Court, be that as it may, unmistakably recognizes a representative's right to help and insight laborers amid the interview.

We no longer have freedom of speech in America out of fear of offending someone. These issues are not covered by the media so many people don’t believe that America is being censored. Many people are being fired or suspended because the words that were spoke by that person were to offensive for the other persons taste. Words are twisted by the media, and people are made out to be monsters all because of some words that were said, when really it’s just words. Paula dean was fired from the food industry because of something she said 30 years ago, Chick-Fil-A was boycotted because their views weren’t the same as others, Brendon Ike was fired because of a few words that he said on social media, it seems like everything that is said or done offends someone in some way.

Going from a man like Bob Ewell and a man like Atticus Finch, you can clearly see one main difference,
(d) When an employment practice, including a test, is claimed as a basis for different treatment of employees or applicants for employment on the grounds that it is a “factor other than” age, and such a practice has an adverse impact on individuals within the protected age group, it can only be justified as a business necessity. Tests which are asserted as “reasonable factors other than age” will be scrutinized in accordance with the standards set forth at part 1607 of this title. (e) When the exception of “a reasonable factor other than age” is raised against an individual claim of discriminatory treatment, the employer

The store alleges that Ms. Smith was distracted by her son and did not notice the spill on the floor and therefore is equally at fault. Question Presented Whether one has a duty to observe the floor while in a store and therefore can be held 50% comparatively at fault for a fall, negating any recovery. Brief Answer No. Ms. Smith’s fall was foreseeable as the store should have had constructive knowledge of the hazard, based on the time lapse between the inspection and the fall.

Should you allow her to retain employment based on the previous EEOC suit? a. Title VII of the Civil Rights act protects against retaliation against an individual who filed a discrimination charge, but it is not absolute. In order for an employee to succeed on a claim of retaliation they must show they engaged in protected activity, adverse employment actions were taken, and there was a causal connection between the employment action taken and the protected activity. If I can show her dismissal had no underlying connection to the protected activity I am not bound by law to retain her employment.
