Religious employees' rights to reasonable accommodations

The rules and demands of the working environment can have the potential to impact aspects of your personal life. If you are a religious person, you will deem it very important that you follow certain practices, such as dress and prayer, even during working hours. You may be hesitant to speak to your employer about this. Before you do so, you should make yourself aware of your rights.

Understanding affirmative action in the workplace

While it is illegal to discriminate in the workplace on the basis of characteristics such as race, religion, nationality, gender or disability, imbalances are unfortunately still present. This means that there is still a significant gender pay gap, and minorities continue to be underrepresented in managerial positions.

Enforcing your right to equal pay

It is well-known that there is a significant pay gap that exists between men and women in the United States. This persists across states and across most industries. These statistics are present despite the Equal Pay Act (EPA) of 1963. The EPA is a federal law that makes it illegal for discrimination to be made in regard to wages on the basis of an employee's gender.

Understanding disparate impact discrimination

There are many ways in which California employees are protected from discriminatory practices. Many of the legal protections in place cover instances in which the employee has intentionally been discriminated against. For example, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal for an employer or employee to intentionally discriminate against an employee because of a specific characteristic, such as their race or gender.

City acknowledges delay in dealing with discrimination complaint

Earlier this year, amid multiple complaints about sexual harassment and discrimination against city employees, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the implementation of a website called MyVoiceLA where employees could report harassment and discrimination. At the time, Garcetti directed city officials to address any complaints by current as well as former employees "quickly and efficiently."
