California's farm hands fear retaliation after sexual harassment


The agriculture industry is big business in California and a driving force in the state's economy. However, workers in the farm field are often subjected to dangerous working conditions for little pay. Furthermore, new studies have shown that many female farm workers are subject to unwanted sexual advances and sexual harassment from supervisors.

Gays and lesbians still worry about workplace discrimination

Everyone wants to be accepted for who they are. People do not want to live in fear that their friends, families or employers are going to discriminate against them because of how they were born or what they believe in. However, many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals have to deal with this fear each day.

New employee rights bill could protect immigrant workers

No matter what occupation employees are working in, they have the right to be safe while working in California. Under California employment laws, employees do not need to tolerate unsafe working conditions. In many cases, there are standards that employers need to live up to or else they can face scrutiny from the state. If employees report unsafe working conditions to state, federal or other agencies they cannot be fired or face any sort of retaliation at work for doing so.
