Indiana to allow religious discrimination

Experiencing any form of discrimination or prejudice is distressing and difficult to deal with. This can be even more the case if it happens in your place of work. If you do your job well and fulfill all the requirements of your role, why should personal details such as your age, sexual orientation or national origin be relevant? Sadly, many employees experience a hostile work environment as a result of other people's narrow-mindedness.

Indiana works to combat pay discrimination

Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and respectfully at work. Unfortunately, countless workers throughout the United States endure a hostile work environment every day. Some are persecuted for their age or their race, others for their sexual preference, disabilities or even their citizenship status. To make things worse, fear of being out of work makes many of these workers hesitant to stand up to those mistreating them.

Some private firm employees now protected from retaliation

The protection of employees and their rights has always been a big issue in the workforce. The government continues to do everything possible to make sure that employees do not ever have to face employer retaliation. The workplace has developed greatly in this matter over the years and continues to develop. The United States Supreme Court has now ruled that private firm employees who deal with publicly traded companies and act as whistleblowers are protected from retaliation.

Employer retaliation was number one complaint in 2013

Given the progress made in labor laws over the years, it is difficult to imagine that employer retaliation still exists in this day and age. It, however, does exist, and new reports point to it being a growing and significant issue. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for the U.S. has recently reported that employer retaliation was the top complaint they received in the 2013 fiscal year. Employees have identified discussing discrimination while on the job as well as filing a lawsuit against their employer as primary reasons for employer retaliation.

Former female deputy sheriff argues wrongful termination

Being unjustly terminated from a position is a slap to the face for any employee, particularly if it is due to discrimination. A former female deputy sheriff is seeking compensation for her wrongful termination. She is claiming she was discriminated against because of her gender, and that this is the reason why she was wrongfully terminated.

Monitoring digital communication to prevent sexual harassment

We've said it before on this blog and we'll say it again: no one should have to suffer through sexual harassment in the workplace. And while employer's can't monitor or control everything their workers say an do at every given moment, once there is knowledge of sexual harassment in the workplace, the employer has an obligation to put an end to it.

Sexual harassment complaint filed against Showgirl employer

In Indiana, you have a right to be free from harassment in the workplace. Unlawful harassment can be based upon your age, national origin, race, religion or sex. Sexual harassment, which is illegal, might include an employer caressing your shoulders, inappropriate comments by co-workers or conduct that creates an uncomfortable or hostile workplace.

Muslim woman wins hostile work environment case

AT&T, whose offices are located in Indiana and across the United States, had been sued by a Muslim woman in what can only be described as a hostile work environment matter. The harassment finally went too far when the woman's supervisor purportedly snatched her head scarf off and exposed her hair.

Challenging "boys will be boys" in the workplace

With all of the sexual harassment scandals among politicians and celebrities, including Herman Cain and David Letterman, it is no longer surprising that we have come to accept some of the bad behavior as the age-old "boys will be boys" mentality.While most Americans agree that sexual harassment is serious matter, there is nothing surprising the media uncovering a new incident. A new commentary suggests that the association of powerful men with sexual harassment cases makes it seem acceptable, or at least something to be swept under the rug. Herman Cain actually gained support and an increase in ratings after the exposure of his affairs.

On-the-job harassment in Indiana on the rise

Harassment on the job can come in many forms and can involve race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability. It appears to be a growing problem in Indiana, but the Indiana Civil Rights Department states it can only step in to try to resolve the problem if it involves one of these categories.
