Protecting the rights of medical workers
Medical workers have difficult jobs, and they should never have to worry about being the victim of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, or retaliation. There are various laws in the state of California that work to protect healthcare workers specifically. This includes doctors, surgeons, nurses, medical assistance, and many other medical workers.
Both state and federal laws protect workers from discrimination based on any of the categories listed above. The law also protects workers from being retaliated against by employers for raising concerns or filing complaints based on discrimination.
Workers in the healthcare industry also face:
Wage discrimination. Pay disparities between women and men in the workplace continue to exist despite federal and state laws that make this illegal. Employees should be receiving equal pay for equal work.
Sexual harassment. The #MeToo revolution has shown us that sexual harassment is prevalent in the workplace. Any sexual harassment of employees is illegal.
