Reviewers Suing Yelp

Plaintiffs filed a California class action lawsuit in Los Angeles on October 22, 2013 against Yelp. Yelp is a website that provides reviews of different businesses around the world. The plaintiffs are a group of Yelp reviewers, claiming that they are unpaid writers who are vital to the company's existence. In the complaint, plaintiffs refer to themselves as writers and non-wage paid employees who have earned Yelp considerable sums of money.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act

Today the Senate has adopted an amendment to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) from Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) that would prevent retaliation against religious organizations. It was only Monday, the ENDA achieved enough support in the Senate to move the bill towards a vote on final passage. The ENDA is a bill that would make discrimination based on "an individual's actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity" illegal in such areas as hiring, firing and compensation in both the private and public workplaces. The measure would treat "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" in a fashion similar to other federally protected categories, such as race, gender, age and religion.
