Sexual harassment more common among women in leadership roles

When many people hear about workplace sexual harassment, they tend to think of a powerful man mistreating a women who works for him. However, a study has found that even women in powerful positions can be victims of sexual harassment on the job. In fact, women in positions of power in California and around the country may be even more likely to be victims of harassment. This is because managers interact with a larger number of people, which provides additional opportunities to be mistreated.

Appeals court finds evidence of wage discrimination

Employers in California can get into legal trouble if they are paying a female employee less than a male employee who performs the same type of work. That's because unequal pay for equal work is considered gender discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Recently, a federal appeals court concluded that there are other paths to sue for pay discrimination besides unequal pay for equal work.
