What behaviors constitute sexual harassment?

One of the more significant issues that arise in the workplace in California is the occurrence of sexual harassment. Such harassment can have a long-term negative impact on both the victim and the accused. In order to prevent sexual harassment in the office, it is important for employees to know what constitutes sexual harassment, as opposed to questionable behavior. However, this distinction is at times difficult to make without the appropriate training and education.

Employees cannot be discriminated against based on age

It is a violation of federal and California law for an employer to discriminate against any employee who is a member of a protected class. Protected classes include race, religion, pregnancy and age, among many others. The legal prohibitions against age discrimination include the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which prevents discrimination against applicants and employees who are age 40 and older.

How do you file a charge of discrimination in the workplace?

When employees in Los Angeles believe that they have been discriminated against because of their race, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability, it is important that they understand their rights and options in this situation. Employees in California and elsewhere across the nation have options and rights afforded to them in these situations, such as filing a discrimination lawsuit against an employer.
