Study sheds light on gender-based workplace discrimination

Gender discrimination in the workplace remains a serious problem for women in California and around the country according to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center. The poll of 4,914 American adults was taken in the summer of 2017, before several prominent politicians and entertainment industry figures were the subjects of highly-publicized allegations of sexual misconduct. More than four out of 10 of the women surveyed said that they had faced discrimination at work based on their gender, but this claim was only made by 22 percent of the men questioned.

Delivery drivers in California wondering how the Fair Labor Standards Act could apply to their wages have new guidance from an appeals court decision.

Transgender professor successful in discrimination case
