Workplace bullying can violate the law

People in Alameda County who face bullying on the job may be dealing with a problem that goes beyond interpersonal difficulties and represents a real legal issue. Workplace bullying may leave many victims confused about how to confront the problem. It may seem appealing to stay silent and hope that the harasser moves on or finds a new target; in addition, the threat of retaliation could loom large, especially if the bully is a supervisor or another person higher in the workplace hierarchy.

Experience ranges could be discriminatory in nature

A 60-year-old man claims in a lawsuit that his supervisor at STMicroelectronics, Inc. made remarks that could be considered ageism. The man said that his supervisor said that the ideal candidate for a job that he was interested in applying for wouldn't have enough experience to be inflexible in the position. In 2008, the plaintiff had held the same position that he was interested in applying for in 2013.

Discrimination still prevalent in the workplace following #MeToo

Many California employees are aware of the #MeToo movement, which aims to bring gender inequality in the workplace to the forefront. While society appears to be pushing for equality, gender discrimination in the workplace is still prevalent as companies do not seem to be making any changes.
