Despite a crackdown on drunk and distracted driving, as well as the implementation of a number of safety features in vehicles, car accidents continue to occur in California and across the U.S. at an alarming rate. Perhaps the most vulnerable to these wrecks are pedestrians. These individuals are, of course, without the protections afforded by motor vehicles, which means that they often suffer extensive harm when struck by a car, truck or motorcycle.
California workplaces are meant to be fair and safe for all. Even though that basic concept is well-known, people with biases and outdated practices will still discriminate against others in the workplace. For employees, this can mean being passed over for jobs, promotions or raises, and it can even lead to a hostile work environment when an individual is demeaned and humiliated in the workplace. For employers, claims of discrimination can have a profound financial impact. It is easy to see how there is a lot on the line for both parties when claims of discrimination are raised.
