Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation: A Complete Manual for California Employers
Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation are words employers don't like to hear, to say the least
A Wide Range of Risky Conduct
These three simple words describe a range of unlawful conduct that weaves a web of potential liability for employers of all sizes. These types of lawsuits can be costly, as Los Angeles-based Practice Management Information Corporation recently discovered when it was forced to pay out $61,000 after firing a worker recently back from maternity leave—far more than the $18-per-hour worker's annual pay.
Although you're probably familiar with basic discriminatory, harassing, and retaliatory conduct, applying the various applicable federal and state laws to real-life scenarios can be tricky.
If you deal with these situations improperly—even if your intentions are good—you could be facing devastating employee complaints and lawsuits (not to mention embarrassing, unwelcome publicity).
