April 2016 Archives

Amended California Feha Regulations & What They Mean For Employees

On April 1, 2016, several amendments to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) went into effect. The new amendments expand California workplace discrimination protections, enhance state enforcement mechanisms, and more. These new regulations also require that California employers have a specific policy to both prevent and correct workplace discrimination and harassment.

California Age Discrimination Laws: Common Questions

Do you feel like you have been discriminated against at work due to your age? If so, you're not alone. Recent employment discrimination charge statistics show that age discrimination in the workplace is on the rise. In 2014, 1,569 age discrimination complaints were filed with the EEOC in California alone, and nearly 21,000 were filed across the United States in 2015.

California Fair Pay Law May Soon Protect Employees From Racial Discrimination

Last October, the California Senate unanimously passed the California Fair Pay Bill - one of the most protective equal pay laws in the country. While this was a giant leap in protecting women facing wage discrimination in California, a recent proposal from a state lawmaker wants to expand the law even further to protect employees from racial discrimination.

California Pregnancy Discrimination Laws: Common Questions, Answered

If you are employed in California, there are both state and federal employment laws to protect you from pregnancy discrimination. Even so, it's important to know that this type of workplace discrimination continues to be a problem in California and beyond. In fact, there were over 5000 pregnancy discrimination charges filed with the EEOC in 2013 alone. But how do you know if you're a victim of pregnancy discrimination?

Los Angeles Trans Woman Starts Business to Help Companies Conform to Transgender Rights Laws

Recently, transgender rights have been a hot topic in news headlines and have been fiercely debated in California and across the country. While acceptance of LGBT individuals is certainly expanding nationally, California employment law offers some of the strongest protections to LGBT employees in the nation. But many California businesses don't know how to properly handle transgender employees who are transitioning on the job. Some aren't even aware what is legal under California employment law when it comes to gender discrimination - particularly discrimination based on gender identity.
