The phrase 'equal pay for equal work' has come to be strongly associated with the male/female wage gap and our post explains the basics.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 30, 2020
California Civil Rights Law Group, a leading San Francisco Bay Area law firm focused on sexual harassment and discrimination law, is proud to announce a new post to its blog on "equal pay for equal work." As Bay Area discrimination attorneys, the firm follows developments in the employment sphere. Many Bay Area workers, including those in key cities such as San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose, confront discrimination at work and need to know their rights, including the right to reach out to an attorney for a confidential consultation on the facts and the law of their particular situation.
"The phrase 'equal pay for equal work' has come to be strongly associated with the male/female wage gap and our post explains the basics,” explained Larry Organ, principal attorney at the Bay Area-based law firm. "However, there are many types of discrimination at work not just in terms of wages but in other areas as well, and some types of discrimination are based on sex and not race. Any person experiencing discrimination on the job should reach out for a confidential consultation."
Interested persons can view the blog post at https://www.civilrightsca.com/equal-pay/. Journalists, bloggers, and other media representatives who are looking to speak with an expert in California and federal discrimination law are encouraged to reach out to one of the law firm's attorneys. They can provide interview opportunities on current day news and events. Secondarily, persons who may be experiencing racial discrimination are encouraged to read the updated informational page at https://www.civilrightsca.com/race-discrimination/. That page explains that although we have state and federal laws in place to protect people from race discrimination or sexual harassment, the color of a person’s skin can still affect their ability to get hired, earn a promotion, or receive other benefits of employment. Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, employers, managers and supervisors still discriminate based on race, believing that they can avoid punishment for violating civil rights laws.
A LAW FIRM THAT BLENDS THE INTERNET, TELEPHONE, AND FACE-TO-FACE
Here is background on this release. In today's Internet age, persons often turn first to search engines like Google and then blogs to learn about important issues, including issues that may be highly sensitive such as potential sexual harassment or workplace discrimination. The "wage gap" is one such issue as is the concept of "equal pay for equal work." While the blog is not in any way, shape, or form, legal advice, it can offer general information to the lay public and spur a social conversation. The next best step for any person experiencing discrimination is to reach out to an attorney for a consultation. Consultations are available over the phone or in person at the law firm's offices in San Francisco, Oakland, or San Anselmo (Marin County) and are always strictly confidential.
