Wendi S. Lazar comments on the past year in Employment & Labor Law, NYLJ, December 11, 2014. Have things improved or gotten worse for employees in the workplace in 2014? All told, it is not as bad as the U.S. Supreme Court would likely have us believe and of course, there are always executive orders that empower people to continue to strive for change and a better life. However, with forced arbitration still a reality and a religious exemption clause that can set in motion discrimination and bigotry in the workplace for years to come, employee advocates cannot rest on some of the positive achievements in the year we leave behind.
