Busting one of the major myths about sexual harassment

Most workers in California probably have a vague idea of what constitutes sexual harassment. Fortunately, most workers have probably not encountered such workplace harassment, but for those who have, the victimization can be damaging and long-lasting. Still, California has key laws in place meant to protect employees from certain types of disruptive and often highly demeaning behavior.

Is there an overarching law prohibiting age discrimination?

With retirement a challenge for many in California, more and more workers may be remaining on the job indefinitely. Consequently, age discrimination is a serious concern in today's uncertain economy. There are key laws related to age discrimination in the modern workplace. These may be of interest to those who are unfamiliar with the topic or believe they may have been a victim of this type of damaging discrimination.

California woman claims employer retaliation in new lawsuit

In the Los Angeles area, and across the country, the modern workplace tends to be extremely diverse. Most workers and employers understand the value of diversity and work to maintain a comfortable, productive and professional environment. However, there are times when certain incidents arise that can make all workers understandably apprehensive. The use of racial slurs can be deeply offensive to people from all backgrounds, and hearing them in the workplace can be jarring, at the very least, even as a bystander. Employers who fail to correct a hostile work environment can face litigation.

Asserting workers' rights in wage and hour disputes

When workers are paid by the hour, they expect that they will get paid for every minute that they're on the job. Most hourly employees in the Los Angeles area likely anticipate that, with the exception of taxes, their paycheck will reflect the actual number of hours worked. Moreover, there are laws and regulations in place to ensure wage and hour violations are rare. Still, not every employer follows the law and, as a result, some local workers may not get paid for all of their hard work.
