Now human resources professionals are officially guided by Justice to refrain from certain acts when competing for talent. October 2016 Guidance provides pointers which include employer agreements: Not to recruit certain employees; Not to compete in terms of compensation; Boycotting temporary employees; Fees and terms of compensation for contractors. Guidance cites enforcement actions on entities that came under its radar, including: Arizona Hospital & Healthcare Association, eBay, Intuit, Lucasfilm and Pizar, Adobe, Apple, Google, Intel, Intuit, Debes, Council of Fashion Designers of America. According to Justice, these entities entered into agreements that violate Sherman Antitrust Act. The guidance does not stop at “agreements”, but goes further to proscribe “sharing sensitive information.” Even if an individual does not agree explicitly to fix compensation or other terms of employment, exchanging competitively sensitive information could serve as evidence of an implicit illegal agreement.
New York City stands out from the rest of the country for its friendlier laws towards working people (i.e. those whose living depends on salaries and wages they receive in exchange labor). New Yorkers have NYC Commission on Human Rights that stands on guard and protects them against discrimination in employment based, among other things, on disability. If employee who is living in New York City suffers from disability, then his or her employer must provide a reasonable accommodation (i.e. accommodation that does not overly burden the employer) to that person. NYC Hum. R. L. § 8-102(18) (defining “reasonable accommodation”); NYC Hum. R. L. § 8-107(15) (requiring reasonable accommodation to the needs of person with disabilities).

Income becomes more important and time to make that income becomes more scarce. Need to care for your disabled friend may mean tardiness to work, early leaving, and increased absenteeism. Employee with disabled friend frustrates the employer – usually a rational corporate entity – with focus on efficiency and profits. “Naturally,” employer will look for…
I. Introduction Under current immigration laws the unsanctioned entry in the United States is a crime and those who have entered unlawfully are subject to deportation. Aliens that are able to evade the lawful channels of immigration system and obtain employment in New York can be entitled to state remedies available to any lawful plaintiff. Undocumented alien entitlement to compensation based on New York backpay and future earnings, notwithstanding the immigration status, throws a challenge to immigration policies promulgated by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (hereinafter INA), as amended by Immigration Control and Reform Act (hereinafter IRCA). When politically charged issue of immigration collides with a heated issue of labor the controversial eruption is inevitable. With “war on terror,” economic troubles and most recently healthcare, being the most pressing issues of the time, Congress is unlikely to draw a clear demarcation line between jurisdictional overlap of the federal immigration and state employment laws. Acutely divided along the partisan lines our legislative branch would not willingly pick a hot potato that is relatively small in scope. Without clear congressional guidance, nation’s state and federal judiciary faced a challenging task of reconciling state remedies with federal immigration laws. In New…
