Recent case: Interesting example of a hostile work environment

Some employment law terms are fairly straightforward. For example, both discrimination and sexual harassment are common terms and therefore most Americans are familiar with them. However, some employment law terms are more vague and difficult to grasp. The concept of a “hostile work environment” is an example of a vague legal term that is truly meaningful but also somewhat difficult to get a handle on.

Understanding the basics of age discrimination

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act protects older workers from age discrimination in the workplace. It is worth noting that this law only protects workers aged 40 and older from illegal discriminatory practices. Although some state laws protect young workers from discrimination based on youth, federal law only protects older workers from age discrimination.

Unfortunately, your physical discomforts are not the only realities you need to worry about during your pregnancy, at least from an employment law standpoint.
