Harassment and discrimination behind recently filed lawsuit

A woman who has worked for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power for decades has recently filed a lawsuit against the DWP and four of her co-workers. She claims she has long been subjected to discrimination, harassment and retaliation because of her religion. Per federal and California fair employment laws, this individual is well within her rights to seek relief and compensation for any losses resulting from such behavior -- as is anyone else who has been dealing with similar issues.

Natural-hair discrimination banned in California

When looking through employee guidelines, it is common to find information about what kind of hairstyles are permitted in the workplace. Long have employees been told to change their natural hair to fit a specific mold. In California, natural hair discrimination is no longer allowed. 

When an EEOC claim gets tossed aside

Those who work in the state of California want to be treated fairly while on the job. When that does not happen, they want to believe that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will have their backs. According to a recently published article, that does not seem to be the case. What can one do when his or her EEOC claim gets tossed aside?

Discrimination case filed against Amazon

Three women in another state recently filed legal claims against Amazon for poor treatment in the workplace. These women claim to be victims of racial and religious discrimination. They also claim that reporting the discrimination resulted in retaliation in the workplace.

Woman wants her employment discrimination case to go to trial

Many women in California and around the country find themselves being passed over for promotions at work because they have children, while men -- also with children -- are given the positions that their female counterparts are more qualified to take. Despite advancements women have made to be treated fairly, gender-related employment discrimination is, unfortunately, very real and still a big issue today. In fact, a story was recently published about a woman who worked for PayPal for almost 12 years before being fired after filing a discrimination complaint with her employer. She believes that she is a victim of gender discrimination and has filed a lawsuit against PayPal.

Employment discrimination suit filed against McDonald's

Discrimination in the workplace is very much alive and well today. Laws are in place to protect individuals who have been subjected to employment discrimination, yet aside from asking upper management to step in to fix the issue, many people fail to seek outside assistance with dealing with it. The good news is, California residents and those residing in other states who believe that they are victims of any sort of employment discrimination may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses. An experienced employment law attorney can help with that.

Discrimination claims filed against UPS

Several workers at a UPS warehouse in another state have filed legal claims against the company for its failure to take action when reports of racial abuse were made. Discrimination in any of its forms is unacceptable in any work environment here in California or elsewhere. All employees have the right to enjoy an employment experience free from harassment and abuse. The accusations made in this particular case are quite disturbing. Anyone experiencing the same thing should know that it is not something that they have to live with.

Changes made to how Google can handle an employment dispute

Up until recently, Google has used arbitration to handle internal company issues. This practice was required per employee contracts. Just recently, this practice was ended. When an employment dispute arises, Google employees in California and elsewhere now have the ability to turn to litigation for resolution.

Did a cancer diagnosis lead to discrimination in the workplace?

A cancer diagnosis can come out of nowhere. Some people feel fine and have no symptoms, while others have symptoms that something is not right, but cancer was the last thing on their minds. In any case, receiving a cancer diagnosis is a shock, and going through the treatments can wreak havoc on one's personal and professional life. Working while being treated for cancer is possible, but some California residents may find that they are victims of discrimination in the workplace during this already very difficult time their lives.

Want to file an EEOC claim? Here's how to get it done

California residents who feel that they are victims of discrimination at their places of work may believe that the best thing they can do is find somewhere else to work. No one should have to stick around that kind of environment. While moving on certainly is an option, so is holding one's employer accountable for what is going on in one's company. Anyone who wishes to do this may file an EEOC claim and an accompanying civil suit.
