EEOC reports rise in disability discrimination at work

Disabled people seeking employment in California and around the country report having trouble getting job interviews according to 2016 data released by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The commission reported that claims for all types of discrimination rose nationwide and that over 30 percent of the cases investigated involved unfair treatment of disabled people.

Dollar General sexual harassment suit

Sexual harassment is a pervasive issue in the workplace. California workers should know that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed filed a lawsuit against Dollar General Store, Inc., alleging the sexual harassment of a female employee. Dollar General is one of the nation's fastest growing, small-box discount retailers, based on information on its website. It operates more than 13,000 stores in 43 states including California.

Retaliation against FLSA complaints increases employer liability

Employers in California might worsen their position in some legal cases regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act if plaintiffs can prove that retaliation took place. FLSA complaints from employees generally involve failures to pay minimum wage or overtime. Negative actions, such as job termination or demotion, applied to employees after filing a legal complaint might expose employers to paying damages for emotional distress as well as back pay.
