Men in California could suffer workplace discrimination

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), more men are filing discrimination claims against their employers. The reason for the spike in workplace discrimination suits is tied to the fact that more men are choosing to take on a care giving role for children as well as disabled or ill family members. While this social shift is clearly demonstrated in a range of statistical data, California workplaces have been slow to adapt to the change.

Wrongful termination suit suggests harassment, retaliation

When an employee is subjected to mistreatment within a California workplace, it can be difficult to know how to react. Many fear that speaking out will lead to retaliatory action or even dismissal. In some cases, the offensive behavior may be so ingrained into the culture of the company that individuals can feel uncomfortable making a complaint. Many times, employees do not feel that they are able to effectively fight back until the situation ends in termination. Once fired, a wrongful termination suit allows for the opportunity to bring the questionable treatment before a court of law.
