Court takes up hear religious bias case over hijab
Attorneys News | 2014/10/03 16:20
The Supreme Court said Thursday it will consider whether retailer Abercrombie & Fitch discriminated against a Muslim woman who was denied a job because her headscarf conflicted with the company's dress code, which the clothing chain has since changed.

The justices agreed to hear the Obama administration's appeal of a lower court decision that ruled the New Albany, Ohio-based company did not discriminate because the job applicant did not specifically say she needed a religious accommodation.

At issue is how employers must deal with laws that require them to make allowances for a worker's religious practices, as long as doing so does not cause the business too much hardship.

A federal judge initially sided with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which sued on behalf of Samantha Elauf. The agency alleged Elauf wasn't hired at a Tulsa, Oklahoma, store because her hijab violated Abercrombie's "look policy," described at the time as a "classic East Coast collegiate style."

But the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision. The appeals court said Elauf never directly informed her interviewer she needed a religious accommodation, even though she was wearing the headscarf during her interview.

Court considers if executioners can be named
Attorneys News | 2014/08/13 22:08
A Tennessee appeals court is considering whether 10 death row inmates have the right to know about the drugs that will be used in their executions and whether their lawyers can get the names of the people who will kill them.

The Tennessean reports that the state Court of Appeals heard oral arguments Monday in the lawsuit brought by the inmates. They sued after the legislature passed a law that keeps details about lethal injection secret.

Lawyers for the state argued that a Nashville judge overstepped her authority when she ordered officials to turn over the names of the execution team to the attorneys for the condemned prisoners. The lower court ruled the names must be released but said neither the public nor the inmates could have them.

"We are here today because for the first time in the history of lethal injection in the state of Tennessee a court has ordered the state to disclose the identities of those people who are involved in the lethal injection process," said Special Assistant Attorney General Kyle Hixson said. "This is an abuse of discretion."

Assistant federal public defender Stephen Kissinger, who represents some of the inmates, argued that there's no "executioner's privilege" that would stop the state from releasing the identities of the execution team in a court case because they would be sealed.

He said a ruling that would allow the state to keep such information secret would have far-reaching implications.

Attorneys News | 2014/06/10 19:48
From the moment an employee is injured, there are time limits for both the employee and employer. Employers must make certain reports to the court system for North Carolina Worker's Compensation case, Industrial Commission. Employer reports do not satisfy the reporting obligations of the employee or extend the time limit for the employee to make his claim.

Under certain circumstances, an injured employee may report their injury to their employer and even be paid for time missed from work. If the employee does not make the proper filing with the Industrial Commssion, the employee's claim can be dismissed and they will receive no further benefits.

It is critical to know what benefits to demand. An injured worker is entitled to numerous benefits, unfortunately it is not the employer's obligation to advise their injured employee of these benefits. At DiRusso & DiRusso, we offer free consultations with attorneys who practice Worker's Compensation.

If you're in need of a Surry County Worker's Compensation Lawyer, contact DiRusso & DiRusso today.
