Indiana lawmakers divided over how to address to religious freedom backfire

Indiana lawmakers on Monday appeared split over how to respond to the growing backlash against a recently signed religious freedom measure that critics warn will encourage discrimination against the LGBT community.

Republican and Democratic leaders presented conflicting analyses Monday morning over what Senate Bill 101 might actually do, along with conflicting plans on how to make sure that this measure would not allow for discrimination.

Republican Governor Mike Pence signed into law a controversial religious freedom bill last Thursday, despite opponents’ warnings that the measure would ultimately damage Indiana’s economy and reputation. Senate Bill 101, also known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), is designed to protect people’s religious beliefs from unnecessary government intrusion. But opponents say that the measure serves as a license to discriminate, especially against the LGBT community, on religious grounds.

But Pence remains defiant and defended his decision to sign the RFRA into law last week, saying the measure was “about protecting the religious liberty of people of faith and families of faith.” Republican lawmakers Long and Bosma also supported the governor’s position but said additional legislative language was needed to clarify the “misconception” that the RFRA allows for the denial of service on religious grounds. “We’ve got some work to do,” Bosma indicated, although it may not likely be soon because it’s too close to the end of the legislative session.

Currently, there are discrimination laws in the workplace with regards to employment, pay, and job safety. These are contained in the Indiana & Federal Employment Regulations Poster produced by All in One Poster Company.



Lawmaker in California calls for stricter EMT requirements for firefighters

State Sen. Isadore Hall III of Compton called for a new California state law Friday requiring all firefighters and other emergency responders in the state to be certified as emergency medical technicians.

His proposal proceeds a Los Angeles Times investigation that found about 1 in 4 firefighters in the Compton Fire Department lacks a valid EMT card, an important credential required by other local fire agencies.Compton Fire Department

“I was outraged” with the news, Hall declared in a radio appearance. “I will be taking action.”

Since the mid-1970’s, fire departments across the United States have shifted from fighting fires to mostly responding to 911 calls for emergency medical help.

Out of the 15 busiest fire agencies in Los Angeles County, LA Times found that Compton is the only one without an official rule requiring every firefighter be a certified EMT.

Since there is no state law that requires firefighters carry an EMT card, local officials said departments largely monitor their own by conducting in-house trainings.a

Senator Hall had asked his staff to prepare legislation that would require every emergency rescuer to maintain EMT certification. He said he plans to file a bill in the next several weeks.

To become an EMT in California, students must learn how to handle patients with severe trauma, properly dress wounds and deliver shocks to cardiac arrest victims. Continuing education is required every two years.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) introduced the Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard in August of 2009 designed to most especially protect first responders, as well as healthcare and other workers exposed from aerosol transmitted diseases. The Standard was developed to address the various risks involved with such exposure including agents that cause Tuberculosis (TB), Measles, Pertussis (Whooping Cough) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Also covered is pandemic influenza including the H1N1 virus commonly known as Swine Flu as well as other airborne infectious disease.

Labor Law History and Background

United States Labor law, also commonly known as employment law, covers all legal
aspects related to any relationship between an employer, employees, labor
unions, and the government. This broad term encompasses individual, collective,
and international labor law.

United States Department of Labor (DOL) - Labor Compliance Article
Labor Law concerns the rights of the worker as dictated by a contract between
the employer and the employee. The terms and conditions of the contract are
mostly following common law or legislation. For example, following state law,
contracts state that an employer may not dismiss their employee for illegal
reasons. Furthermore, minimum wage regulations also fall under individual labor
law. An employer may not legally pay any employee under the national minimum
wage, currently $7.25 per hour in the United States. However, some states have a
minimum wage set higher than the federal wage.

Collective Labor Law refers to relationships between the employer, their
employee, and the respective labor or trade union. These labor unions are
organized groups of employees, and they work to serve the best interests of
their members. With approval from union leadership, members of the union may
collectively participate in a strike. Without the union, individual employees
would not have the ability to “strike” because they would likely be let go
immediately. Although, it is not in an employer’s best interest to fire every
single employee when a union goes on strike. Thus, the power of an employer can
be met equally through the utilization of unions.

The history of Labor Law in the United States is fairly complex and can extend
back to the 1600s where one of the first recorded strikes took place. However,
the formalities of these laws seem to have emerged in tandem with the Industrial
Revolution between the late 1700s and the early 1800s. The shift from
smaller-scale production to much larger factories caused relationships between
employers and employees to shift too. Employees began to seek out better working
conditions, more suitable hours, as well as the right to join labor unions. In
addition to this, child labor became a pertinent, rising concern during the same
time period. These multiple factors pushed forward the aggressive movement forOccupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) - Labor Compliance Articlelabor
law reform in the United States.

The United States Department of Labor (DOL) manages and enforces close to 200
federal laws related to labor, employees, employers, and compliance.
Furthermore, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates
all health conditions in most private industries. It is the responsibility of an
employer to guarantee their employees are in a safe, hazard-free working
environment. Both the DOL and OSHA require that certain notices are posted,
providing the necessary regulation information to their employees. Labor law
poster and OSHA poster requirement information can be found on the United States
Department of Labor website, as well as on any specific state Department of
Labor website. Below, you may find a list of all 50 states and their respective
DOL website.
