Pregnancy discrimination is unlawful: What to do if it happens

Having a baby is typically an exciting, joyful time in a woman's life. It can definitely be challenging, as well, in more ways than one. However, a problem no pregnant woman in California or elsewhere should have to face is losing a job because of pregnancy discrimination.

Was that sexual harassment?

While it may be hard to believe, many women experience sexual harassment while at work even if they do not realize it.

Grocery store must pay for wage and hour violations

Bay Area residents probably frequent local supermarkets to pick up a weekly supply of food and other household supplies. While most shoppers may think that an employee is properly paid for his or her hard work, this assumption is not always true. Recently, one supermarket was found to be in violation of laws meant to protect employees, including wage and hour violations.

Pregnancy discrimination still common in the workplace

Pregnancy and childbirth are among the most natural life events a woman can go through. With slight adjustments to their environment and routine, most women can continue with normal life throughout most of their pregnancies. Still, women in the workplace continue to face examples of unfair treatment despite the passage of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act over 40 years ago. Understanding how the law protects them is the first step for California women to ensure they are receiving fair treatment in the workplace.

Former employee of 30-plus years sues for wrongful termination

While it is becoming more rare, some California workers have been with their same companies for many years, perhaps decades. A woman who was a city employee for more than 30 years was suddenly fired from her job. She has since filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against her former employers.
