Thinking about returning to work as a new mother

When you become a mother, there are many reasons why you will need to take time out from your ordinary activities. First, you will need to recover physically from the process of pregnancy and childbirth. Most doctors advise that this will take at least 6 weeks, and therefore, they never recommend that a mother returns to work within this time frame.

Why a sexual harassment case might be challenging

If you believe that you have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, it is very important that you acknowledge and address it before it has the power to negatively impact your career. Unfortunately, many sexual harassment victims in the state of California face retaliation as a result of reporting a sexual harassment incident. It is, therefore, vital that you understand the ways in which the law is in place to help you and protect you.

What Is Workplace Defamation?

Social media can provide abundant examples of probable defamatory statements. Viewing media reports of slanderous comments between two public figures are the usual ways we witness possible public defamation. However, defamation is not just practiced by high profile individuals, and it can happen in everyday life, including at the workplace.

Can I be fired because of my medical history?

In today's world, we can find out more than ever about our genetic information as well as medical issues that we might face in the future. This can have a big impact on how we view ourselves, and this medical information can go a long way toward predicting future health issues.

Are you suffering in the workplace because of your religion?

All employees in the United States have the right to be treated based on their ability to perform the job and role that they have been hired to do. Therefore, laws have been put in place to protect employees from many types of discrimination, including religious discrimination.

Understanding disability discrimination

As someone who is disabled living in California, you probably know that when you seek employment, prospective employers cannot discriminate against you because of your disability. Nor can they discriminate against you in any way if they give you the job. Furthermore, they must reasonably accommodate your disability except under very limited circumstances. Should an employer fail to adhere to these Americans with Disabilities Act regulations, you have the right to sue that company for employment discrimination.
