Subtle versus overt discrimination: Recognize it in the workplace

In the workplace, there can be subtle signs of discrimination that are mixed in with more obvious cases of discrimination. For example, you might hear your boss say they don't want to hire a woman because women are less responsible than men. This is clearly discriminatory, but it's not as obvious as your boss saying it to you directly.

Sexual harassment can come from someone of the same gender

A surprising number of people don't really understand sexual harassment. While the idea of sexual harassment has been discussed much more in the news and media in recent years, there is still widespread confusion about the topic. People in different work positions or of different genders have differing views on allegations of sexual harassment.

Car accident liability and damages

Many drivers in California will be involved in an accident at some point during their lives. Crashes can be costly, especially if the collision results in injuries requiring extensive medical treatment. Before making a claim for damages related to a car accident, it's important to understand how fault and the extent of damages are determined.

Fall prevention measures must be in place in nursing homes

Nursing home residents face many risks. One is the risk of falling, which is often preventable. All skilled nursing facilities must have steps in place to prevent residents from falling. There isn't one specific plan that works for all cases. Instead, every individual has to have a customized plan that addresses their specific issues.

Breastfeeding discrimination is common despite legal protections

In 2010, Congress amended the Fair Labor Standards Act to include workplace protections for breastfeeding mothers, and California law extends these protections. However, workers including farmers, registered nurses and kindergarten teachers are not covered by the federal law, and a recent study suggests that even breastfeeding mothers who are covered are routinely treated unfairly by both private and public sector employers. One of the cases reviewed by researchers involved a police officer who was denied a temporary desk assignment when she was unable to wear a protective vest.
