Workplace Discrimination Archives

Workplace discrimination suits cost taxpayers over $300K

As more and more workers are being held accountable for their actions of harassment, recent statistics from the federal House Office of Compliance show that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid over $300,000 in disputes over recent years. The workplace discrimination lawsuits in the House have proved to be costly for taxpayers. Individuals in Wisconsin can take heart, knowing that harassment and discrimination continue to be taken seriously in the workplace, and penalties exist for offenders. 

Former Wisconsin senate aide files workplace discrimination claim

A complaint filed against a former state senator, now acting as a city treasurer, has been settled, although he denies the behavior. The details of the Wisconsin workplace discrimination and harassment claim was recently revealed to the media. In light of the revelations, the man has issued a statement. 

Uber answers more charges of workplace discrimination

With only two months left in 2017, Uber Technologies, Inc. may be eager for this troubling year to end. The ride-sharing company has dealt with extensive negative press in recent months, much of it stemming from accusations of mistreatment of employees. Wisconsin employees who feel harassed or who face workplace discrimination may be interested in the latest allegations facing the company and its administration.

Wisconsin Walmart faces workplace discrimination accusations

It's the store that greets you with a friendly smile and a sticker. The giant retailer has a long history of employing older and disabled workers, but one location has been charged with failing to accommodate an employee's needs. A recent incident in a Wisconsin Walmart location has led to allegations of workplace discrimination due to the company's treatment of a long time employee. 

Workplace discrimination charges for Wisconsin care center

An employer should offer employees reasonable accommodations for their temporary disability needs. In fact, these types of adjustments are part of the law of the land in Wisconsin. Pregnancy is considered a type of temporary disability, so a company that offers light duty for other types of disabilities should also offer the same for its pregnant workers. One company is facing a workplace discrimination suit for allegedly violating a worker's rights to reasonable accommodations.

Workplace discrimination complaint filed by Wisconsin officer

A recent news story tells about a police officer who has filed a complaint related to mistreatment she suffered on the job. The Wisconsin officer reportedly experienced workplace discrimination when she did not receive help after reporting ongoing harassment to her supervisors. Two officers have resigned in the aftermath of the complaint, and the woman has been moved to another shift, giving hope to others that their claims of harassment can be taken seriously when the right agencies are involved. 

Workplace discrimination guidelines for high status workers

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 laid some important guidelines for workers. Title VII of the federal law protects workers against workplace discrimination. But high-ranking workers in Wisconsin, such as executive and law firm partners, may be wondering whether their position is considered employer or employee. A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Clackamas case has laid out guidelines for courts to determine whether a worker is an employee or an employer, and therefore whether the individual is protected against certain forms of workplace discrimination. 

Age a factor in workplace discrimination

Age is nothing but a number, some say. But others, including some employers have a different view. Despite having legislation enacted to prevent age discrimination, this type of workplace discrimination still exists and seems to be thriving in the digital age. Older workers in Wisconsin may find some facts from a recent article about age discrimination reflective of their own experience.
