Discrimination in the workplace still an issue for many women

The discrimination of women in the workplace is nothing new, but there are many times when it becomes more obvious than others. During some of those times, women have brought lawsuits against their employers in an effort to try to asset what is fair and just.

Disparaging comments by workers may be protected speech

Employers in California and around the country may be wise to seek legal counsel before taking disciplinary action against workers who post disparaging comments about them or their products or services on workplace bulletin boards or on social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter. Courts and the National Labor Relations Board have generally viewed such statements as protected speech when they are made during an ongoing labor dispute and contain at least an element of truth.
