Workplace discrimniation Archives

Lesser known forms of workplace discrimination

Most people in California know that their employers cannot treat them differently because of their gender, religion or national origin. There are several other protected classes of workers too, including age and race. Some workers might not realize that it is also illegal to discriminate for other reasons.

Workplace discrimination still a problem for pregnant women

While there is a lot of joy in welcoming a new baby into the world, there is no denying that pregnancy is a major medical event. It is not surprising that many pregnant women in California need further accommodations to keep them happy and healthy in the workplace. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act -- new legislation that was recently passed by The House of Representatives -- aims to protect women from workplace discrimination and to make sure that they have the accommodations they need.

What you need to know about pregnancy discrimination

You have the right to work without fear of discrimination or harassment, but unfortunately, employers do not always respect this right. You may find that you are a victim of discrimination for a variety of reasons, including your pregnancy. While having a baby should be a time of excitement, it could also negatively impact your career. If this happened to you, you do not have to suffer in silence.

Is PTSD a protected disability?

PTSD.jpegIf you are one of the estimated 8 million adult Americans suffering from PTSD, i.e., Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, you know that your symptoms can appear at virtually any moment. At work, your PTSD symptoms may cause you memory problems, concentration problems or make it impossible for you to have and maintain good interactions with your coworkers.

Is your company's dress code discriminatory?

Time was when companies could dictate more or less exactly what their employees could wear to work. Such is not necessarily the case today, however. While no federal law or policy exists that prohibits employers from establishing and enforcing dress codes, they must be careful when doing so.

What types of gender inequality still exist?

Sixty years after the Women’s Movement played a huge part in getting U.S. women out of the “housewife” stereotype and into the workplace, gender inequality still exists there. If you are a woman attempting to climb the corporate ladder, you know how difficult that can be, especially if the company for which you work fails to see gender inequality as an issue.

What defines reasonable accommodation?

If you are one of the estimated 48.9 Americans who have a disability, you likely already know that the Americans with Disability Act protects you from workplace discrimination. In a nutshell, prospective employers cannot discriminate against you based on your disability, and any employer who hires you must provide you with reasonable accommodations that allow you to successfully perform your work.

Do you work in a hostile work environment?

No one can expect their workplace to be completely free of office politics, interpersonal disagreements, or any of the other things that unfortunately accompany working with other people. You can expect, however, that your workplace will not become a hostile work environment.

When discrimination affects an entire family

Often, when people focus on the impact of discrimination, they look at the direct impact that mistreatment in the workplace has on an employee. While these challenges are significant and we have covered many on our blog, it is important to realize that the consequences of discrimination in the workplace often disrupt the lives of many other people. For example, when someone is discriminated against at their job, there are a variety of ways in which their spouse and even children are likely to suffer as well.
