Employment Discrimination Archives

Employment discrimination case heard by U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard a case that presents an issue for which the lower federal courts, including those in California, are in conflict. The question is when does an employee's resignation from a job constitute a constructive termination to meet the requirements of the civil rights laws? The employment discrimination case deals with the regulations regarding federal employees of the U.S. Postal Service.

The ADEA protects older workers from employment discrimination

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against a worker for reasons of age. It protects all workers over 40 from employment discrimination due to age. Such illegal discrimination is prohibited with respect to hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation and any other term, condition or privilege of employment. In California, the ADEA exists alongside state laws that also provide protection from age discrimination to workers.

Agencies and restaurants accused of employment discrimination

It may not be widely known that many immigrants in California and other states are being shoveled into jobs where they do the unsavory work that Americans often will not do. For the privilege, the man or woman receive an hourly wage rate that is far less than minimum wage. Many of them may find that they have a claim for employment discrimination against the employer for treating them differently than similarly situated Caucasians.

Who is entitled to overtime pay in California?

Gone are the days when factory workers are forced to work 10, 12 or more hours a day or risk losing their jobs. Most modern full-time jobs operate by the standard 40-hour work week, in which employees work eight hours a day, five days a week.

Women still earning just 79 cents to the dollar versus men

It has been decades since women successfully fought to have careers of their own, instead of relying on husbands or parents to earn a living for them. Today, nobody thinks twice about women employed in virtually every possible field of employment once thought to be solely for men.

After Uber: Misclassification of workers in any industry

Employee misclassification has been a hot topic in the news recently as a result of the ongoing Uber controversy. However, the issue affects workers in a broad range of industries throughout California - not just drivers for ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. If you are an independent contractor or a salaried employee, it might even be affecting you.
