Workplace Discrimination Archives

New laws will impact California workplace discrimination claims

When a person experiences unfair treatment in the workplace, it is that worker's right to speak out and take legal action. In many cases, this involves speaking out about experiencing workplace discrimination. While anyone who experiences this in the workplace can take legal action, there is a limited amount of time to do so. Thanks to new California laws that will come into effect in January, this timeframe will be longer.

Is your employer discriminating against your religious beliefs?

Like many in California and elsewhere, your religious beliefs are important to you. While the practice of your faith may be a private matter, your beliefs may direct the choices you make in your daily life. Your religion is not something you turn off when you go to work, and while you may not openly preach your faith in the workplace, your beliefs may be obvious in your attire, your manners or your actions.

Workplace discrimination because of hairstyle? It's possible

A California lawmaker recently proposed a bill that would provide protections for individuals who wear certain hairstyles in the workplace, primarily African Americans. If passed, the bill would prevent employers from implementing policies about acceptable hairstyles that many claim are a form of workplace discrimination. There are already federal laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace for people who wear afros, but the law does not currently extend to other hairstyles.

How does the Age Discrimination in Employment Act protect you?

Older California employees may face various challenges in the workplace because of their age. If you are over the age of 40, you may find that you experience treatment that feels unfair or even discriminatory, and this may be because of your age. Workers of all ages have the right to a workplace that is free from illegal harassment and discrimination.

Study shows numerous individuals fear disability discrimination

Many people in California and across the country have some kind of disability. You may have a disability yourself that you have worked to manage, possibly for your entire life. While your situation may mean that you accomplish tasks in different ways or in a different time span, you do not feel that your disability holds you back from being a capable employee.

Being fired while on maternity leave could be discrimination

Goldman Sachs is being accused of gender discrimination after a vice president lost her job while on maternity leave. The former vice president is seeking over $15 million in damages, alleging she was fired because she took the entire four-month paid leave that the company offers, according to an article recently published in the Los Angeles Times.
