Top Labor Issues and Solutions

by abala

On this Labor Day, I was pondering on the advances made in labor laws and opportunities. The US Labor Day and the International Workers' Day (May 1) date back to the 1880s. The early Labor days were a celebration of unions and early wins on legalizing the eight-hour workday. The subsequent focus was on establishing weekends, sick days, and paid time off. Now some 140 years later, the top labor issues are very much similar. The US Department of Labor lists Discrimination and Harassment, Wrongful Termination, Family and Medical Leave, Minimum Wage, Unsafe Workplace Conditions, and Workers' Compensation for Illness or Injury as the top employment issues. The kandi kit on Top Labor Issues and Solutions showcases open source and reusable libraries across these core issues of Discrimination, Harassment and Wrongful Discharge, Compensation, Family and Medical Leaves, Minimum Wage, Overtime, and Misclassification, and Workplace Safety. While there are a few hundred reusable libraries on each topic, there is still a significant opportunity for developing solutions. If you find any other libraries or use cases, publish them through your own kit.

Discrimination, Harassment and Wrongful Termination

These libraries cover topics across bias and discrimination across the employment lifecycle of hiring, pay, and termination/ discharge.

Compensation, Family and Medical Leaves

These libraries cover topics across Compensation for Illness or Injury, and Family and Medical Leaves.

Workplace Safety

These libraries cover topics across Unsafe Workplace Complaints and Conditions.

Minimum Wage, Overtime, and Misclassification

These libraries cover topics across Minimum Wage, Overtime, and Misclassification, and an interesting library to see your web purchases in multiples of minimum wages to emphasize the enormity of the issue.
