Bricks-and-Mortar Retail Stores often require that employees conform to specific work schedules and dress codes, and these requirements can form the bases of charges and claims of discrimination – such as religious discrimination claims for wearing religious garb outside of the dress code. Disability Discrimination claims and Family and Medical Leave claims can arise from enforcement of attendance and time keeping policies. Wage and Hour complaints can arise based on hourly, salaried or commission payment structures. Retail stores are also undergoing substantial changes as E-Commerce remakes the way consumers make purchases, driving down in-store sales and reducing the number of employees needed in stores. Mass layoffs require implementation of specific notice and termination procedures under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) Act. Attorney Liane Janovsky serves as an advisor on policy development and implementation, hiring and layoff procedures. She also litigates and resolves cases for both companies and employees in the Retail Sales Industry.
