Anyone working in a corporate environment knows that big business is all about metrics designed to make shareholders more money. Nothing truly evil with that, it's capitalism and hence our economic system.
Depending on the size of an employer's business, there should be a procedure to follow when an employee gets hurt at work. Often, employees and employers alike are confused about the steps to take when an employee is injured.
When I began practicing employment law, I kept asking myself the same questions:
Workplace discrimination can occur in numerous forms. Federal and state laws not only prohibit an employer from taking adverse action against an employee due to that employee's protected characteristics (such as race, religion, national origin, or disability status), they also forbid employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of the protected characteristics of those with whom they closely associate.
Walmart is possibly the largest violator of employment laws in the United States. Walmart, by corporate plan and design, intentionally violates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other laws enacted to protect disabled workers.
