Were you arrested for DWI over the holidays? Take action now

If you're a federal employee or are applying for a federal job, a drunk driving arrest can be a big deal. First, it can cause you to miss work, which could lead to performance concerns. If your job requires you to have a valid driver's license, you may face real challenges. Also, an employer's concerns about your alcohol consumption can create problems with your security clearance.

Court finds Wal-Mart employee discrimination claim barred

A Texas federal district court ruled that a subsequent class action lawsuit, filed by plaintiffs from an earlier class action case, had been filed too late and should be dismissed. In Odle v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the plaintiff had sued Wal-Mart for employment discrimination against women on issues of pay and promotion.

The case that prompted the ruling was brought by a man who was hired by the Internal Revenue Service in 1991. In 2002, he was a candidate for a promotion. However, the IRS performed a background check, and at that time, they determined the man never signed up for the Selective Service. The man claimed he was unaware of the requirement, but he was later fired anyway.
