Employment contracts don’t always protect workers

Not every job requires a contract between employer and employee. However, when the job includes complex benefits, access to trade secrets or other critical issues, a contract may help clarify the rights and responsibilities of each side. California employees should be cautious when accepting a position that includes an employment contract because the fine print may not always provide for the best interests of the worker.

Age discrimination may also have elements of sexism

Federal and California laws prohibit discrimination against a number of protected classes during any phase of the employment process. This means an employer may not refuse employment, raises, promotions or other opportunities to someone based on the person’s race, religion, sex, age or other factors. However, in recent years, older Americans are noticing signs that employers may not be taking age discrimination as seriously as they should. However, many question whether men or women over 40 are more likely to face this discrimination.

Retaliation may follow complaints of discrimination

Sometimes things do not go smoothly in the workplace. California employees who feel their bosses or other workers are treating them unfairly may file a complaint, either with the bosses, with human resources or with an outside authority, such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. While some employers may learn from such a complaint and strive to make the workplace less hostile, others may use retaliation to make life very difficult for the employee who complained.

Hooters settles in sexual harassment lawsuit

As an employee, you have rights protecting you from sexual harassment in the workplace. Both California and federal laws protect you from harassment.

Two male Hooters employees in the Los Angeles area recently settled a lawsuit that involved a superior allegedly sexually harassing them and then retaliating after the men reported the harassment. The case shows how sexual harassment can lead to a toxic work environment.
