Basic approaches to reporting sexual harassment

Across California, workers in any industry might experience sexual harassment. A survey conducted by CareerBuilder collected responses from 809 full-time employees in the private sector and concluded that 12 percent of them had been sexually harassed at work. Reporting the behavior to their employers, however, proved to be the exception rather than the rule. Among victims, 72 percent of them stayed silent. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a victim has options for pursuing a remedy.

Companies accused of using social media to skirt labor law

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits employers in California and the rest of the country from discriminating against job applicants who have reached the age of 40. However, the results of an investigation conducted by ProPublica and the New York Times indicates that some of the nation's largest corporations are using social media to skirt the landmark 1967 law. According to the study, companies including Amazon, Target, Verizon and Goldman Sachs use the demographic filters offered by ad platforms from Facebook and Google to ensure that older job seekers are unable to view their help wanted advertising.
