Standing up to police misconduct and brutality

We depend on our law enforcement officers to truly serve and protect our communities, even in communities that often feel at odds with the police. When an officer breaches his or her duties and violates the rights of a suspect, or submits a suspect to brutality, it is important to stand up against these acts. When we hold law enforcement officers accountable for upholding the law without breaking it, we help protect the rights of many others who might experience unfair treatment.

A blow to the head can end your construction career

If you recently suffered a blow to the head on your construction job, it is critical to seek professional medical attention as soon as you can. Any time that a construction worker suffers a blow to the head, his or her employer may hold liability for the medical costs of treating the injury and other expenses.

What is false arrest?

Law enforcement officers are human, just like the rest of us, and are certainly capable of making mistakes. In recent years, public outcry over police misconduct has forced this issue into the spotlight, placing even greater scrutiny on police officers to uphold the law while they enforce the law.

Your immigration status doesn't affect your rights at work

As an immigrant, you're at a disproportionate risk for workplace injuries. You may not be in the United States legally, but that doesn't mean you should be at risk of injury. Latino workers face the highest risk of dying on the job, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Is a school liable for bullying?

As a country, we are currently in a very interesting cultural moment. More so than at just about any other point in time, people in every corner of society must consider the potential consequences of their actions if they act unfairly toward someone else. After years (or centuries, even) of those with little regard for the wellbeing of others preying on them, especially inside of a school setting, institutions and individuals are beginning to understand that bullying can carry serious penalties.

Police disciplinary trials and their delay tactics – Part 2

Police department disciplinary trials can often have seemingly endless delays. Many people that attempt to seek justice for suffering from police brutality or other forms of misconduct can wait years before the trial even sees the inside of departmental courtroom. While the actions of the department itself can often result in lengthy delays, there are other issues that can cause the departmental trial process to slow down.

Police disciplinary trials and their delay tactics – Part 1

Almost two years ago, a New York police officer mistook a former tennis star for a suspected criminal and tackled the innocent man to the ground. The injured man has gone through a rollercoaster of trial reschedules in order to see the officer answer for his misconduct. Even after the trial is concluded, the former tennis star could wait many more months before the police commissioner submits a final ruling. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the police commissioner will punish the officer for use of excessive force and, even if he does, that punishment may never become public knowledge.

Every New York construction worker has rights to safety

Here in New York, there are thousands of workers who work in unsafe conditions every day. Under regulations provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), many of these dangers are avoidable, but employers still often push the boundaries of regulations in pursuit of making profits and meeting deadlines.
