What can I do about the proverbial "boys club" at work?

California and federal laws protect workers from certain kinds of workplace discrimination on the basis of sex or gender. For example, an employer is probably breaking the law when it hires women only for low-level positions and reserves all management positions for male job applicants. However, there are many cases where it's difficult to determine whether the discrimination occurred, or if it rose to the level of unlawful discrimination.

Pregnancy and temporary disability in the workplace

Working while pregnant may constitute a difficult situation. Pregnancy symptoms may leave you ill or unable to complete some necessary elements of your job. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) ensures that you do not face discrimination in your workplace during your pregnancy, or your employer could face serious charges.

Statistics show thousands of claims of pregnancy discrimination

Thousands of women have been subject to unlawful discrimination because they were pregnant, or because their employers feared they would become pregnant. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is the agency that receives and investigates claims of pregnancy discrimination at the federal level. In its role, the EEOC has compiled statistics both of the number of new pregnancy discrimination claims reported and the number of pending cases the EEOC has resolved.

California court: employees to be paid for all tasks

The California Supreme Court recently made an important decision that will better ensure that Fresno employees who work by the hour get paid for all of their work. This recent decision made a bit of a splash in the news media, since it undermined a common practice among employers and also set a higher bar in this state than what would apply under federal wage and hour rules.
