What's a consequential injury?

Workers' compensation is not meant to be difficult. The premise is simple. A worker, government or private, hurt on the job, is entitled to the medical treatment and time needed to make as full a recovery as possible. You would think that denials would be few and far between, but they are common.

Is it the end of civil service due process, as we know it?

Attorneys with deep experience dealing with the complicated systems of federal employment know that it's no bed of roses. Government workers in Texas or any other state face a veritable quagmire of procedural steps when management initiates action based on allegations of misconduct or underperformance.

Don't let scare tactics prevent you from protecting your rights

Being mistreated on the job or living in fear that you will get fired out of retaliation for exercising your rights can be incredibly stressful. In addition to the emotional devastation of being harassed or discriminated against, you can also be dealing with the anxiety of being out of a job and unable to care for yourself and your family.

Congressional staff are overwhelmingly white. Is change possible?

According to the Washington Post, years of private studies have demonstrated that, while Congress itself is becoming more diverse in response to citizen activism, their staff is not. Workers in congressional offices, from chiefs of staff and top advisors to aides, pages and administrative personnel, continue to be overwhelmingly white.

Revived Congressional rule sends chill through federal ranks

Some supporters call it a minor adjustment that simply restores constitutional powers of the purse Congress. Other supporters say it could prove to be a positive step toward curbing rising federal bureaucracy. Opponents warn it threatens efforts to protect the rights of federal workers against the political whims of elected officials.

In whistleblower law, standards of evidence make a difference

When a person is charged with a crime, the state must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. That is, the evidence has to be so clear and convincing that a jury or a judge can feel confident the defendant is guilty. The standard is not quite so high in civil cases. Then, all that's required is or a plaintiff to offer a preponderance of evidence. Having 51 percent of the evidence on your side can win the case.
