California sperm bank sexual harassment suit reaches settlement

Employers have a duty to prevent workplace discrimination and harassment based on gender. But what is an employee to do when it is a supervisor who is the one making the work environment a hostile one? In a recently settled lawsuit to that effect, a California woman was forced to leave her job due to sexual harassment and discrimination from her boss.

Domino's Pizza involved in wage disputes

Domino's Corporate, the popular pizza-restaurant chain with franchises in California and across the nation, now finds itself the sole remaining defendant in a lawsuit in another state. The worker's rights lawsuit involving wage disputes originally named three former franchise owners in addition to the company itself, but all three have since settled. The former Domino's franchisees have agreed to pay a combined restitution settlement of $480,000.

California jury awards $1.8M for claims of employer retaliation

After deliberating for less than two hours, a California jury awarded $1.8 million dollars to a former director of human resources. The woman had alleged she was fired in retaliation for whistleblowing when she was employed at a rehabilitation center known as Passages Malibu. The wrongful termination lawsuit was filed in late 2015 and alleged disability and age discrimination as well.

Second sexual harassment suit fosters hope for change

In California workplaces – and anywhere else in the nation -- sexual harassment is prohibited. Sexual harassment generally involves the making of obscene remarks or unwanted sexual advances, typically – though not always -- directed against women. In another state, a woman has stepped forward to file a lawsuit against the city's police department where she works; this suit follows close on the heels of the first sexual harassment suit in which this same woman assisted another who was suffering harassment at the hands of co-workers and supervisors.
