Steps to taking when filing a sexual harassment complaint

Feeling harassed in any setting can be disconcerting. When sexual harassment takes place at work, it can be even more difficult to face as individuals have to return to their jobs day after day. Fortunately, individuals in this type of position can take steps to report the misconduct and harassing behaviors they have faced.

Do you work in a hostile work environment?

As a California worker, you undoubtedly have days when you wish you did not have to go to work. Possibly that is because your workplace is not always the pleasantest place to be. You may have to deal with people who incessantly tell off-color jokes, make negative comments about you or other co-workers, make discriminatory and/or offensive comments to you, or otherwise make your life miserable. This type of workplace harassment can rise to the level of a hostile work environment.

Wage and hour claims may help address illegal actions

Fair wages and proper compensation is what many people work for. Often, they must work long, hard hours in order to provide for their families and meet other needs, so whenever something seems off with their pay, it can be concerning. Unfortunately, some employers do not properly pay their workers, and it is often up to the employees to pursue their rightful compensation through wage and hour claims.

Workplace harassment may involve cultural differences, disability

Most Californians want to do their jobs to the best of their abilities. Though some days may seem more difficult than others, they can often power through and reach the end goal. However, when parties must contend with workplace harassment, their jobs may become immensely more difficult, and these actions may cause their work and personal lives to suffer.

Failing to comply with ADA may equal workplace discrimination

It is common for people to assume that many individuals with disabilities were born with them. However, a multitude of people, including many in California, develop disabilities later in life due to accidents, injuries or illnesses. As a result, someone could hold a job for a number of years before developing a disability that may need accommodation. If an employer fails to adhere to laws requiring these accommodations, a person could have reason to file a workplace discrimination claim.

Body evaluations at restaurant lead to sexual harassment claims

It is not unusual for California residents to think an opportunity is going to work out a certain way only for it to be drastically different. Many individuals may feel excited to start a new job, but they may soon find themselves facing sexual harassment at work that quickly drains that excitement. Unfortunately, some people may not even realize the actions that employers take could be considered harassment.

New California Test For Employee vs. Independent Contractor

The California Supreme Court adopted a new legal standard that will make it more difficult for businesses to misclassify workers as independent contractors. This will directly affect the trucking and transportation industry as well as the gig economy (e.g., Uber, Grubhub, Bellhops, Caviar, Dolly, DoorDash).
