Discrimination: Man allegedly fired due to disability

Treating a person unfairly based on race or gender is wrong. Unfortunately, discrimination still happens in California and all across America. Discrimination can exist in many forms and those who experience it can be scarred for life. Employees in California who are discriminated against while at work can take legal action.

Shedding light on sexual harassment and discrimination

America has seen remarkable cultural and societal improvements in recent years. Despite this progression, workers across the country are commonly treated unfairly, simply because of differing gender and/or race. These days, allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination are becoming commonplace in the headlines, as thousands of women are coming forward, refusing to be silenced. A wrongful termination suit was recently filed against a California university after the female dean of the school was allegedly subjected to sexual harassment and fired.

No person should ever be forced to endure discrimination

In life, it is only right for every person to be treated fairly. No person should be judged or have less opportunity just because of gender or color of his or her skin. This is the very definition of discrimination, and no matter how it occurs, it is always wrong. These days in California and across the nation, more and more women are coming forward with allegations of gender discrimination. A former employee of a city in another state filed a lawsuit after she was allegedly harassed and discriminated against.

Discrimination in any form is wrong

Even in this day and time, it is not uncommon for California residents to receive unfair treatment just because they have differing characteristics. This is the definition of discrimination. Generally, a person is most often discriminated against because of differences in race, gender, age and even disabilities. Unfortunately, discrimination is still prevalent in the workplace and is also illegal.

Employees should always report discrimination and harassment

California has laws in place to protect all employees. No person should have to endure harassment, especially not in the workplace. However, a pharmacist in another state claims that she was fired after reporting harassment and discrimination while working at a hospital. The alleged victim has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Woman awarded $31 million after discrimination and retaliation

For decades, women in the American workforce have endured harassment and other discriminatory acts virtually in silence. Years and years passed with no significant changes. However, in the last 20 years, the awareness of gender discrimination in the workplace has increased significantly. Women in California and across the nation have pushed back and are courageously standing up for their rights. Recently, a jury in Los Angeles awarded an ex-employee $31 million after she was allegedly subjected to discrimination and harassment at work.

Gender discrimination continues to be a problem in the workplace

Although great advancement have been made for women's rights in California and across America, gender discrimination continues to happen at an alarming and disturbing rate. Even today, women in the workplace are often thought of as inferiors, harassed and passed over for promotions in favor of male counterparts. When this act of dehumanization occurs in the workplace, victims can take action. Recently, a woman in another state filed a lawsuit after she was fired as a result of alleged harassment and discrimination.

Man files lawsuit after alleged age discrimination

When employees in California and across the country face discriminatory acts at work, they can be psychologically scarred for life. The effects can be absolutely devastating. Discrimination is unacceptable and those that have been affected have options at their disposal to fight back. Recently, a former employee of the city of Fresno filed a lawsuit after he was allegedly wrongfully terminated.

Man cites discrimination in wrongful termination suit

In today's world of business, its not uncommon for employers to weed out older employees in favor of younger and, often, less experienced workers. Although older workers provide value in terms of experience, some employers may see older employees as hurtful to their bottom line, since older, experienced employees are often paid more.  Discriminating against an employee because of age or any reason is against the law in California. What can be done when an employee experiences discrimination in the workplace? The victim can take legal action and file a lawsuit.

Mulitple women file lawsuit alleging pregnancy discrimination

Unfortunately, discrimination is still very present in today's society. Although a person may be discriminated against for many reasons, any type of discrimination is wrong and can be psychologically devastating for victims. Recently, a lawsuit was filed against a law firm in northern California over allegations of pregnancy discrimination.
