How should I behave at my office holiday party?

Many workers in Missouri will be attending holiday parties throughout this month. While spending quality time with co-workers can be a great way to strengthen bonds and access opportunities, it can also land you in hot water if you're not careful. That’s why The Muse offers the following tips, which can help you navigate your work’s holiday party without incident.

Why should you take breaks at work?

When you were hired for your job in Missouri, chances are your employer informed you of how often you would be allowed to take breaks. While it may be tempting at times to continue and work throughout designated break periods, this time is imperative to your safety, wellbeing and productivity at your job. If your employer does not provide adequate breaks, you may consider voicing your concerns because breaks are a necessary part of being a productive worker. 

Know your rights as a pregnant worker

Finding out you are pregnant can be the beginning of an exciting adventure, but for many working women it can also be the beginning of pregnancy discrimination. Two major United States companies have recently been accused of pregnancy discrimination, which suggests this form of discrimination is still occurring around the country despite it being illegal.

Are there exemptions to the FLSA?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulates things like overtime pay and the minimum wage, among many other workplace matters. While a wide range of workers is covered by the FLSA there are also quite a few exemptions. The U.S. Department of Labor offers insight into these exemptions so both workers and employers remain fully apprised to their rights.
