Is It Discrimination? In Specialty Roles, Lines Are Blurred For Fired Workers

A recent lawsuit by a former Walt Disney World employee has raised some concern over the topic of pregnancy discrimination for workers in specialty roles. The plaintiff, Krista Crowder, claims she should not have been fired for taking a medically-necessary 11- month leave following her pregnancy.

In the Age of #MeToo, How Far Is Too Far? Some Say That A Zero-Tolerance Policy May Do More Damage Than Good

The rise of sexual harassment allegations stemming from the #MeToo movement has left many employers reeling as they try to implement policies and procedures to protect themselves from potential liability. Some have elected to impose a zero-tolerance policy for all sexually inappropriate behaviors in the workplace. While this sounds good on paper, in reality, it can have some unintended consequences.

What Emerging Multiracial Plaintiff Cases Suggest About Employment Discrimination Law

Beginning in 2000, the United States Census Bureau began allowing respondents to choose more than one racial category. Following that census, 2.4 percent of the U.S. population identified themselves as multiracial. In the 2010 census, that number increased to 2.9 percent. There is speculation that the multiracial population in the United States may have been underestimated and the number of those who identify as such will continue to grow.

What Employers Can Learn From Google's Recent Diversity Battle

Google's recent controversy over a 10-page memo written by a male employee who claimed women were biologically and emotionally inferior to men is one in a string of recent highly publicized eruptions of bias in the workplace.

Race and Gender Equality in Hollywood, California has been at the forefront of swirling media headlines, as we are midway through Hollywood's biggest awards season.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or "EEOC" is an administrative agency whose primary responsibilities include enforcing federal laws with regard to protecting employees and job applicants from discrimination in the workplace. Types of discrimination include discrimination based on race, age (for workers or applicants 40 years of age and older), national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, disability, or genetic information. The EEOC also protects those who are either involved in the investigative process i.e., the aggrieved or those who are acting as a witness during the investigation process from retaliation.
