If you were fired for being gay, understand your legal rights

With the legalization of same-sex marriage, many Americans assumed that discrimination against individuals on the basis of sexual orientation was a thing of the past. However, this could not be further from the truth. In fact, if you're a member of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, you know that you're always at risk of facing discrimination on the street, at work, at church and even at home.

3 signs you're being sexually harassed

Sexual harassment has a strange way of sneaking up on its victims. It starts as a simple touch or what seems like an innocent compliment. Then, gradually, it escalates into insulting and sexually-charged comments, requests for sexual favors and even demands for sexual acts with threats of retaliation. No matter how severe the sexual harassment is, you don't have to put up with it.

Was I wrongfully fired under the pretense of downsizing?

If you have recently been fired, it is likely that you were surprised by the sudden and arguably unnecessary termination of your employment. While your employer does not need to give a specific reason for why you were fired, they cannot fire you for a wrongful reason. For example, they cannot fire you for a discriminatory reason such as your race, religion, pregnancy or sexual orientation.

Facing a discriminatory firing as a driver

If you are a commercial driver in the state of California, you would hope that you would be judged on your ability to drive safely and professionally, rather than on anything else. Unfortunately, many drivers in the state of California have experienced being fired for no good reason, leading them to believe that they may have been fired because of discrimination.

Studies showcase problems older workers continue to face

In the last year, California has passed numerous laws meant to decrease the amount of employee discrimination. While most of these lean more towards preventing sexual harassment, there are a few that hope to minimize work discrimination as a whole. Certain laws make it more difficult for employers to reject harassment claims in the workplace.
