Sexual harassment hotlines do not stop the harassment

When reports of sexual harassment began swirling around Fox News earlier this year, it was noted that employees never took advantage of the media organization's hotline. Like Fox News, many California companies maintain a hotline for employees to report incidents of sexual harassment. However, these types of hotlines are generally meant to legally protect the company and not actually prevent sexual harassment.

Physicians who are mothers experience maternal discrimination

According to a study from a California university, it is not uncommon for doctors who are also moms to experience workplace discrimination. The study was reportedly inspired by online conversations at a group comprised of physician moms. In the group, which has almost 70,000 community members, physicians can share stories, ask questions and seek support.

AG seeks damages for sexually harassed female farm workers

In California, the agricultural industry continues to be an economic powerhouse, generating tens of billions of dollars annually. Further up the coast in Washington state, a major sexual harrassment case has been filed in federal court by the state's attorney general, alleging that sexual harassment has become an "occupational hazard" for female farm workers at one company.

Cancer patients struggling with equal treatment at work

California residents may be aware of the Americans with Disabilities Act that was passed in 1990. In 2008, it was amended in order to protection for those with chronic diseases. However, a study that was published in a peer-reviewed medical journal has found that workplace discrimination is still a problem for those with chronic illnesses such as cancer. The study compared claim data from the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission between 2001 and 2007.
