Quid pro quo harassment can damage an employee's career

Individuals who work in California are protected from harassment and discrimination when they are performing the duties of their jobs. The laws that apply to many employers ensure that workers are not treated badly by their employers due to the workers' races, genders, religious beliefs and other protected classes. Workers are also protected from sexual harassment when they are at work through the application of several important laws.

What is age discrimination?

When a new California high school or college graduate begins their job search to enter the work force they may discover that they lack the experience to take on some types of work. However, once they get their foot in the door and begin building their work history their options for employment may become more robust as they prove themselves in the context of an occupation. It may seem, then, that older workers who have put in their time and built up their careers may have an easier time advancing in and moving to new careers due to their experiences.

California restraint owner charged with sexual harassment

We all have expectations for what it will be like working at our place of employment. Maybe we fall short when it comes to day-to-day work tasks, but one expectation that should always exist is being treated properly in the workplace. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. An employee might feel mistreated or harassed. Even more so, an employee may find that these acts are sexual in nature, leading to a sexual harassment suit.

Helping you take action against pregnancy discrimination

Female employees fight for equality across the nation. While some strides have been made, the difference is treatment can be obviously seen at times. It is known that all women have the potential to bear children; however, some employees use an employee's pregnancy as an excuse to alter their work assignment, transfer them or even demote or terminate them. Taking such action when an employee is pregnant is not only a form of discrimination but it is also illegal.

Big name companies sued over discriminatory hiring ads

Everyday consumers are exposed to advertisements in some form, but many people don't realize that they aren't always seeing the same ads as their fellow neighbor. In fact, websites such as Facebook and Instagram allow companies to create customized audiences to decide who sees their advertisements. In many aspects, this marketing strategy can be convenient and successful. After all, 16-year-olds would be less likely to engage in campaigns related to divorce than they would with celebrity gossip.
