Workplace Discrimination Archives

Employers must respect pregnant employees

Discrimination in the workplace can take many faces, but one of the most frustrating and inexcusable is that brought against pregnant employees. Pregnancy discrimination is mind-bogglingly widespread, despite the fact that every person within a given company or agency also owes his or her life to pregnancy.

Woman allegedly fired for calling out racial discrimination

If you've worked in charity work or the nonprofit sector, then you probably know that even well-intentioned enterprises often suffer from the same bureaucratic breakdowns and discipline issues as many other sectors. Just because a particular organization is charitable does not necessarily mean that they treat employees fairly.

Can an employer fire someone for political reasons?

In recent months, the political conversation in America has grown very tense, and demonstrators have chosen to rally and protest a number of politically divisive issues. While this is an important part of the political process, it also creates a great deal of confusion about the boundaries of free speech and how exercising free speech may incur consequences. Clearly, these are very difficult things to discuss fairly and professionally, but are also important to understand.

AT&T faces age discrimination lawsuit

Usually, when the public discusses workplace discrimination, they are referring to some type of unfair treatment against a certain race, religion, sexual orientation or gender. However, while these are some of the most common types of discrimination in the workplace today, they are by no means the only types of discrimination that can occur. Communications giant AT&T recently received a class action lawsuit alleging that their new emphasis on staffing with technologically capable individuals operates on a discriminatory bias.

New Jersey Attorney General's Office accused of discrimination

Workplace discrimination can happen in any workplace, regardless of the industry or sector. This was recently demonstrated right here in New Jersey as three attorneys general filed claims against the Attorney General's Office, accusing officials there of systematic discrimination toward African-American employees.

Is workplace bullying legal?

If you work in a professional space, then you have probably experienced unkind treatment at one point or another. While a great fuss gets made about workplace harassment, where do you draw the line between between actual discrimination and a coworker or superior simply being a mean, bullying person?

Employers may not discriminate because of bankruptcy

Workplace discrimination can take many forms, some of them more surprising than others. When we think of workplace discrimination, we generally think of sexual harassment from a superior, or an employer who does not respect the race or religion of an employee.

Sex discrimination can be many things

Understanding sex discrimination in the workplace is more important than ever these days, both to ensure that you do not commit it and also to know when you should stand up for your rights and for the rights of countless others. Sex discrimination goes well beyond harassment, although that is an important part of it. If you are unsure if some form of sex discrimination is happening in your workplace, you should not hesitate to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate this difficult area of the law.

Steps you can take to close the gender pay gap in the workplace

It is 2017, and the gender pay gap continues to rob women across the country of the equal pay they deserve. While we can certainly deliberate about the cause of the unequal pay, it is difficult to deny its existence.

New Jersey considers protections for medical marijuana users

New Jersey has had laws protecting lawful marijuana users on the books since 2010, but new bills working their way through the legislature could add some muscle and clout behind the rights of employees who are treated unfairly because of medical marijuana use.
