Gretchen Carlson settlement shows the importance of publicity

California residents may be aware that the sexual harassment suit filed by TV anchor Gretchen Carlson against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in August was recently settled. In a Sept. 6 statement, 21st Century Fox thanked Carlson for her work with the popular cable news channel and apologized for the way she had been treated. Several media reports claim that the 50-year-old former 'Fox and Friends" anchor will be paid as much as $20 million in the settlement.

How gender discrimination may impact men in California

While much has been made of gender bias against women at work, there are ways in which men can be discriminated against as well. For instance, after a woman has a baby, she is generally entitled to a period of leave as well as the ability to obtain a flexible schedule based on the child's needs. In most cases, fathers are given limited rights as they aren't thought of as caregivers.
