A senior care community in a Milwaukee suburb has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by a former employee who said she was fired because she was pregnant. In the suit filed in U.S. District Court last August, the woman claimed that California-based Silverado Oak Village in Menomonee Falls violated the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Oncologist awarded $13 million for gender discrimination, retaliation

The 63-year-old doctor saw a steady increase in the number of women in medicine since she began her work treating cancer patients.

Jury: Illinois gubernatorial candidate retaliated against staffer

“I am proud of the fact that my staff that works for me is 80 percent female, and I have great relationships,” said the candidate for Illinois governor last fall in Chicago. “Because I build my office on one word: respect. And I think that’s what all women want, and that’s what I am all about.”

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.

With only two months left in 2017, Uber Technologies, Inc. may be eager for this troubling year to end.

Wisconsin Walmart faces workplace discrimination accusations

It's the store that greets you with a friendly smile and a sticker.

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.
