I travel quite a bit for work, sometimes with my boss and most times without. I’m the only person on my team that travels the most.

Illegal Workplace Discrimination? Here’s How to Tell

Sklover Working Wisdom

Recently, we dealt with a law firm that was comprised of 9 partners, 12 associates, four administrators, and six clerical staff – all women. For example, it would at the very least be suspect if a company in New York City that employed 100 people did not have at least a reasonable percentage of women, racial minorities, all religions, disabled people, and employees over the age of 50 or even 60. “Discrimination is a disease.” . .
