You do not have to tolerate sexual behaviors from your boss

Popular culture tends to romanticize the prospect of finding love in the workplace. From Jim and Pam of television’s “The Office” to the characters played by Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt in the film “What Women Want,” popular culture seems to be filled with arguably endearing office romance scenarios. Unfortunately, romance in the workplace is rarely so straightforward and is rarely so inviting in real life.

Understanding the new EEOC pregnancy discrimination guidance

We write frequently about the ways in which relatively subtle forms of illegal discrimination continue to permeate the American workplace. In addition to race discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination and sexual harassment, a staggering number of American workers continue to experience the negative effects of pregnancy discrimination. In response to this disturbing trend, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has released guidance on this issue that is arguably long-overdue.

Supreme Court will consider pregnancy discrimination case

Federal law protects female workers from being wrongfully terminated, demoted or given lower pay because they are pregnant. These forms of pregnancy discrimination are fairly obvious and tend to be relatively easy to prove under a number of circumstances. However, pregnancy discrimination can also be subtle and harder to detect if workers are not aware of their rights.

Teen workers: Know your wage and hour rights

Summer vacation provides unique educational opportunities and experiences for teenagers that they otherwise might not have the time to embrace. For example, working a seasonal job (or working more hours in the summer) can give teenagers a manageable taste of adult working life.

Seemingly subtle race discrimination persists in the workforce

In our last post, we discussed the fact that discrimination in the modern workplace often appears in relatively subtle forms. Discriminatory behaviors can be so subtle that many victims are left wondering if there has actually been any intentional wrongdoing on the part of their employers or co-workers.
