How state discrimination protections differ from federal laws

This blog often notes that workers have protections under state and federal laws. The distinction between state and federal is important because the protections they offer are somewhat different. In general, California law provides more protection than the federal government, and more than many other states. This can be seen easily in the number of protected classes covered by state and federal civil rights laws.

California on-call workers deserve to be paid

Employees that are required to be on-call for work have unique burdens to overcome that those with standard hours and shifts do not have to deal with. For example, an on-call nurse is not able to make social plans, schedule volunteer opportunities, take on additional work or enroll in an educational course during the time that the individual is on-call. Rather, the nurse simply has to be available for the duration of that day, and periodically check in with the employer. If the nurse is not needed that day, there will be no compensation given for the reporting time that day.

Can my employer fire me for reporting a safety hazard?

Employers have a duty to make their workplaces reasonably safe for their workers. Accidents can happen anywhere, and some types of work are more dangerous than others, but no one should have to work in a place filled with unreasonable risks of injury. Workers have the right to report safety hazards at work either to their employer or to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the federal agency that enforces federal safety standards in the workplace.

Jury awards $11.1 million in sexual harassment and assault case

Over the past few years, there have been countless stories in the media about women speaking up about the harassment, discrimination and abuse they have faced in the workplace. Many have complained that the legal system failed to give them justice, and that they were therefore forced to go public with their accusations. However, it's important to remember that, however difficult these cases may be, victims of sexual harassment can and do win lawsuits against the people who mistreated them in the workplace.

What can women do after facing pregnancy discrimination at work?

Getting pregnant can change your life in many unexpected ways, both good and bad. One area of your life where it should not affect you negatively is in the workplace. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 prohibits workplace discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions. Unfortunately, more than 40 years after its passage, many employers continue to violate the law, discriminating against women who are pregnant, who might get pregnant, or who need to take time off for childbirth and related issues.
