Three victims bring sexual harassment lawsuit in California

Sexual harassment in the workplace is prohibited and victims are protected. In a nearby California community west of Los Angeles three women recently filed a claim that they were sexually harassed at the grocery store where they worked and that their supervisor allowed the sexual harassment to continue. One of the women worked for the company for 11 years and had a dream of moving up in the company. She wanted to learn from her supervisor but asserts he instead made sexually harassing comments to her and touched her inappropriately.

Workers should be familiar with racial discrimination protections

In general, race discrimination in the employment process is not permitted but it can sometimes be difficult to detect. The employee or job applicant, however, may know it is going on. It may outwardly seem more subtle when an employer fails to hire or promote an employee because of their race when the employer is unlikely to state racial discrimination as the reason. Racial discrimination in the workplace is strictly prohibited by both federal and state laws.

Older workers are protected from age discrimination

Employees over the age of 40 are protected from employment discrimination on the basis of age. Workers are protected under The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). The ADEA protects employees and job applicants. Generally, it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee or job applicant in regards to any term, condition or privilege of employment. Employees and job applicants cannot be discriminated against based on age related to hiring, firing, promotions, layoffs, compensation benefits, job assignments and training.

Knowing the facts about sexual harassment is important

This blog recently discussed the serious nature of sexual harassment in the workplace. It can be helpful to be armed with the facts concerning sexual harassment if a worker is experiencing it or concerned about it. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII applies to companies with greater than 15 employees, state and local governments and some others. It protects workers in the workplace from sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment lawsuit brought against California start-up

Harassment of the sexual nature is not permitted in the workplace, and victims have legal protections to be aware of. It is often a difficult predicament to be involved in, sometimes causing employees to fail to timely report these acts. Nonetheless, employees have rights and the ability to assert them to ensure a safe work environment and protected civil rights.
