The Glass Ceiling

Congratulations to Hillary Clinton on becoming the first woman to be a presumptive nominee for a major political party in this Country. I would not wish for my daughter to ever be President. That said, as a father raising a daughter it’s important to me that my daughter believes that all opportunities are open to her if she chooses to pursue them. She’s only 9 now, but kids begin learning about Presidents by that age in school and she is well aware there has never been a woman who was President. I’m not sure whether someone pointed that out to her or if she noticed on her own, but she’s aware. Kids get a lot of input about what they can’t do and/or aren’t expected to be able to do. Clinton’s achievement sends a powerful message about what can be done.

Fines For Failing To Post Notices About Illegal Discrimination Increased

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is increasing the fine for failing to post required Federal nondiscrimination notices to $525 per violation starting July 5, 2016. Every employer that is covered by Federal discrimination laws is required to post notices in prominent and accessible places where notices to employees and applicants are typically maintained describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, disability and genetic information. The current fine per violation is $210. Despite the fine, employers continue to violate the posting requirements. 2010 saw the highest number of violations in the last 10 years. Employees who are unsure of their rights should be able to locate and review these notices. If your employer has not complied with the posting requirements, speak up.
