Why doesn't HR always take sexual harassment claims seriously?

The wave of accusations against powerful show business figures, politicians and others that followed the downfall of movie producer Harvey Weinstein has put the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace at the top of the news cycle. It's a time for all of us to consider how unwelcome sexual comments, demands for sex, groping and more have hurt American workers, especially women, for decades.

Female producer files sexual harassment suit

A segment producer who worked on a couple of major reality shows recently filed a suit against five producers, a production company and Warner Bros., alleging that she was harassed in a sexual manner while on the job. Sexual harassment is illegal in the Bay Area. For this reason, those who are victims of it in California have the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

Qualifying for medical leave from your job

Whether it happens to you or a close family member, a sudden medical emergency can turn your world upside down. It can force you to stop working for weeks or months, either as the patient or the primary caretaker. At the same time, you should not have to quit your job or risk getting fired because of a family emergency.

Whistleblowers in Bay Area protected by law

A public safety worker with a public school district in another state recently claimed that he was retaliated against in the workplace for speaking up about corruption in his department. He has therefore filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the organization. Whistleblowers in the Bay Area have the right to seek justice if demoted, terminated or otherwise retaliated against after reporting wrongdoing in their companies.

Sexual harassment suit filed against city and mayor

A city and mayor in another state are the subjects of a recent lawsuit filed in federal court that alleges harassment on the basis of sex.
