Age discrimination bill re-introduced to Congress

California residents who are old enough to suffer from age discrimination in the workplace should be aware of POWADA, the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act. This is a proposed law designed to make proving age discrimination in court much easier. One study by the Urban Institute found that 56% of older workers are forced out of their jobs before they can retire. Only one in 10 of those workers will make as much money at their new place of employment.

Amazon employees file religious discrimination complaint

Three Amazon employees have filed a federal lawsuit against their employer for workplace discrimination and retaliation. Workers in California might want to know the details of the case as it raises issues of workers' rights that are applicable nationwide. The three employees, who are Muslim women, were working for an Amazon warehouse. They allegedly feared taking breaks to pray because they thought they would be issued write-ups. One of the women was so afraid, according to the complaint, that she broke her fast for Ramadan and stopped taking breaks for ablutions or even to use the restroom.
