02/27/13 - Wednesday's Topical Currents discusses workplace laws and rights. If you’re a private sector employee, you really have very few rights . . . and can be let go without specific cause. Race or age discrimination, harassment or sexual exploitation, however, can be grounds for litigation. We’ll have two employment and workers rights experts on hand to take listener questions: labor and employment law attorney Donna Ballman and Paula Brantner, Executive Director of Workplace Fairness, a non-profit which advocates for and promotes employee rights.. That’s Topical Currents . . . Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN.
Donna Ballman is the author of STAND UP FOR YOURSELF WITHOUT GETTING FIRED: Resolve Workplace Crises Before You Quit or Get Axed.
