Female supervisors face more sexual harassment at work

Florida readers might assume that most cases of workplace sexual harassment involve subordinates who are harassed by superiors. However, a new study finds that female supervisors are even more likely to be sexually harassed than women who do not hold supervisory positions.

Proposed bill could strengthen protections for older workers

Workers in Florida and across the United States continue to suffer from age discrimination on the job. Some members of Congress want to take action to improve the situation. The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 1230, the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act. If adopted, the bill would amend the original Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), which prohibited employers from discriminating against workers age 40 and up. The bill being proposed would add clarity to the evidence that workers need to present in order to make a successful claim for workplace discrimination in court.

Is your boss cheating you out of the chance to earn overtime?

The recent raise in Florida's minimum wage may be something you have looked forward to for years. Still just a little more than a dollar over the federal standard, every bit helps, especially since you rely on your paycheck to meet your financial obligations and buy the things you need and want. Another thing that helps boost your take-home pay is overtime. You may be one of those who eagerly accepts extra shifts and assignments for the chance at reaching the 40-hour threshold to qualify for overtime.

Age discrimination at work

Older workers in Florida and around the country may feel that they are valuable employees who bring wisdom, maturity and experience to their workplaces. Unfortunately, however, there are employers and work colleagues who may not feel the same way. Negative attitudes toward and stereotypes of older workers can lead to a hostile, discriminatory work environment.
