Employment Law - Employer Articles
Discrimination among employees by an employer is not automatically illegal. An employer may legally discriminate among employees on the basis of their performance, attitude, and even personality. Discrimination is illegal, however, when it is based on an employee's membership in a "protected class." Protected categories include race, sex, national origin, religion, age, and disability.

Immigration Law Case Summaries
[12/19] US v. Alvarado-Pineda
Conviction of defendant (a Mexican national) for illegal reentry is affirmed, where: 1) defendant’s conviction of second-degree robbery under section 9A.56.190 of the Revised Code of Washington is a “theft offense,” and such a conviction, accompanied by a sentence of imprisonment of at least one year, qualifies as an aggravated felony under 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(43)(G); and 2) because defendant’s aggravated felony conviction renders him ineligible for relief from his underlying removal orders, he suffered no prejudice from any procedural defects that may have occurred in the removal proceedings.
