Investigation will examine employment discrimination in Hollywood

Certain industries in Los Angeles are more prone to employment discrimination than others. This discrimination can include a variety of factors including gender discrimination, age discrimination and the like. If this type of issue regarding equality in the workplace is systemic, it might be the foundation for a full investigation by the federal government. Such is the case with Hollywood and the allegations that women are discriminated against as a matter of course. Those who believe they have been affected by this in any way need to be aware of the investigation to keep track of whether or not they can file a lawsuit.

How does California enforce protections for equal pay?

In California, there is a law called the California Equal Pay Act. This law is designed to stop employers from paying people less based on their gender. Although the best case scenario is that all employers will adhere to the law and pay everyone fairly, it is a sad fact that there will still be violations and acts of workplace discrimination that occur. In order to strengthen this law, a new law signed by the governor in October of 2015 called the California Fair Play Act was meant to bolster the California Equal Pay Act. Those who might have faced violations of the new law should be aware of its tenets.

Coffee chain worker files a lawsuit alleging wrongful termination

Regardless of where a person works in California, he or she has certain rights to be treated fairly and not face retaliation when complaining about a work-related issue. In reality, there are times when an employer will take steps that are not only a violation of the rights of the worker, but are also a violation of state employment law against an unlawful reason for termination. When there has been a wrongful termination, the person who was victimized should make sure to take steps to receive compensation for the wrong that was perpetrated.
