Overcoming age discrimination in California workplaces

Many older California employees start to feel that they are being discriminated against at work due to their age. While the Age Discrimination in Employment Act has made it illegal for employers to treat individuals differently due to their age if they are 40 or older, many organizations seem to favor younger employees. In some cases, this is because an organization is being discriminatory, but in others, companies may just want people who are cheaper to employ.

Poll finds Muslim American doctors face workplace discrimination

According to a study published in December 2015, nearly half of Muslim American doctors across the United States feel discriminated against in the workplace. The study, which was published in the online journal AJOB Empirical Bioethics, was conducted by University of Chicago researchers and funded by the John Templeton Foundation. It is the first study to look at the link between the religious beliefs of Muslim American doctors and on-the-job discrimination, and it will certainly be of interest to many California health care practitioners.

The law regarding mandatory overtime in California

Doctors, nurses and other health care workers in California may sometimes be required to work overtime so that patients can receive urgently needed care during staff shortages or some sort of emergency. Hospitals or other health care facilities will generally call for mandatory overtime only after more conventional efforts to ensure staffing levels are adequate have been unsuccessful, and some states have passed laws that would prevent them from requiring overtime be worked.
