Citizen call leads to charges for meth possession

The drug crisis on Kentucky is an ongoing one and citizens are doing what they believe is their part to help combat the crisis. There is no doubt that it is a real crisis and there are people in the state who are committing  drug crimes involving meth and other drugs. When people are arrested and charged with crimes they have the right to due process as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.

Employer failure to pay premiums may constitute fraud

If asked, many people in Kentucky would probably say that having health insurance is very important in their lives. They pay premiums and expect that the insurance will be there if they need it. A class action suit alleging fraud was recently brought against a now bankrupt hospital in the eastern part of the state.

Employment handbooks may include pregnancy accommodations

Finding out that she is expecting a baby can be one of the happiest moments in a woman's life. That is unless she fears losing her job if her employer finds out. A new law passed in Kentucky will serve to protect women against workplace discrimination in the event of a pregnancy. The law also stipulates that workplaces must make reasonable accommodations for pregnant and/or nursing mothers. These accommodations may be included in employment handbooks going forward to offer women a little more job security.
