It is not unusual for women in California and the rest of the nation to be sexually harassed in the workplace. According to a survey that was conducted in 2015, 1 in 3 women reported being a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace at least once.
If a California employee is involved in a workplace discrimination case, there may be strength in numbers. Specifically, people may have better odds of succeeding if it can be shown that others were discriminated against as well. For instance, a minority worker may want to show that other minorities were passed over for positions while women may want to show that females were treated worse than males.
California employers are generally allowed to check up on employees while they are on FMLA leave. This was according to a Texas court's ruling in response to a lawsuit from an employee who was terminated for attending a Beyonce concert. The woman claimed that her termination was a violation of her FMLA rights and that it constituted retaliation against her.
