Workplace discrimination in LosAngeles government

People in California are entitled to a safe and comfortable workplace when it comes to one's well-being. This includes a workplace free from sexual harassment and discrimination. A recent complaint has been brought against a Los Angeles city councilman. The complaint was lodged via MyVoiceLA, a new website created by the mayor. The website was created to allow staff members, commissioners and others to report allegations of  discrimination or harassment.

When a report comes in via the website, the Special Committee on Investigative Oversight reviews it and determines if the complaint warrants an independent investigation. If an investigation is launched, the findings are then forwarded on to the city council for any recommended action. The councilman named in the most recent complaint had been accused once before.

The prior complaint against the councilman was brought by his former chief of staff. She accused the councilman of asking for sexual favors and said she was pressured to quit or move to a different job. The councilman denied the charges and claimed that he had a consensual affair with her. She filed a sexual harassment lawsuit that was settled privately. No details on the current complaint have been released.

A worker in California who believes that he or she is being discriminated against or harassed based on one's gender or appearance may wish to seek the counsel of an attorney experienced in labor law. No one should have to suffer discomfort on the job caused by workplace discrimination. If a civil suit is a viable option, a person could be compensated for lost wages or other documented damages.
