Workplace Discrimination Archives

When it comes to work, what does your age have to do with it?

Do you ever feel like your employer avoids giving you assignments, refuses to promote you or offers you unfair benefits -- among other things -- because of how old you are? If so, you may be entitled to file an age discrimination claim against the responsible parties. In California and elsewhere, your age is not a reason for an employer to discriminate against you.

Preparing for a claim against sexual orientation discrimination

Regardless of whether you are transgender, lesbian, gay or bisexual, you have the right to be free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace. The law has been slow to catch up to modern times. Not even half of states nor the federal government have protections against sexual orientation discrimination as they do against discrimination because of race, religion, disability or gender. Fortunately, California is one of the states that went the extra mile to protect your right to a workplace free from discrimination.

Were you fired because you were pregnant?

After excitedly telling your family and friends that you were expecting a baby, you were looking forward to sharing your good news at work. You decided the first person you'd tell would be your boss; however, after doing so, you didn't quite get the reaction you'd expected. In fact, as you think back on it, instead of expressing joy or congratulations, he or she appeared somewhat irritated. You hoped it was just surprise because your news caught him or her off guard.

Weight discrimination is a tough bias to shed

If you have trouble finding a power suit in your size, it may be for one reason: those who make clothes for business women don't expect plus-size women to achieve positions of power. Why is that? After all, you have your degree, perhaps several. You are good at your job, and you have plenty of successful experience in your field.

Caregivers get little respect in the workplace

At the end of the day, when you think about all the things that are most important to you, the ones that rise to the top are likely your family and your friends. Those closest to you make your life worthwhile. You may wish you could devote all your time to caring for them, but, of course, you have to work each day.

Know what religious protections you have at work

Federal law provides specific protections for employees. Some of these protections center around closely held religious beliefs. There are some exceptions to the protections, so workers should be sure that they fully understand what is allowed and what isn't allowed under the law.
