Former worker sues Tesla for racial discrimination

Florida readers may be interested to learn that a former Tesla employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against the automaker, claiming that the company's Fremont, California, factory is a "hotbed" for racial discrimination. The lawsuit was filed in Oakland on Nov. 13.

Complaining about sexual harassment in Florida

Sex discrimination and harassment at Florida workplaces is illegal. Despite this, the behavior continues to occur, leading the victims to wonder what they can do about it. It is important for victims of workplace sexual harassment to understand how they should complain and what to expect once they do.

Have you faced workplace sexual harassment in a restaurant?

The hospitality and food industries have thrived in Florida due to tourism and population growth. While you may find working in a restaurant to be a fun, challenging and rewarding job, some parts of the job are not as pleasant. This is especially true of sexual harassment at work.

Are Florida servers and bartenders making minimum wage?

When it comes to your job, making money is usually the most important factor. While it is nice to enjoy your workplace and fraternize with colleagues, your work is still work, and you need fair compensation for it. Serving and bartending are notoriously difficult yet potentially lucrative careers, but both of these positions rely on income paid by patrons in the form of tips.

Why ignoring sexual harassment is bad for employers

Sexual harassment can take place regardless of what field a Florida resident may work in. Although cases of harassment occur in many different companies, only 30 percent of female victims make complaints according to a representative of the EEOC. A smaller number of victims will file a charge with the EEOC. In some cases, companies that know or suspect that harassment has taken place may ignore it or hesitate to take action.

Is age discrimination always illegal?

The federal law ADEA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, strives to prevent age discrimination in employment. It applies for workers 40 and older, as long as their employer has at least 20 workers. So, someone who is 25 may not necessarily have an age discrimination case.
