Sex discrimination hurts women on the job

Women on the job in Missouri continue to face a range of obstacles to equality in the workplace. While the #MeToo campaign highlighted the scourge of sexual harassment in the workplace, this is only one of the issues that women face on the job. The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing several cases with major implications for the legal understanding of sex discrimination in American workplaces. Several federal appeals courts, as well as the Department of Justice during the Obama administration, argued that sex discrimination includes within its ambit discrimination against LGBT workers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

What can I do when witnessing sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is an unfortunately all too common occurrence in the workplace. As a result, co-workers often witness harassment as it happens, which leaves them in an awkward position. Of course, doing the right thing is crucial, but you might also have concerns about retaliation if you call attention to another person's inappropriate behavior. This is especially true when the person doing the harassing is a supervisor or some other authority figure. Marketwatch explains some of the steps you can take if you witness sexual harassment at your place of work. 

What is shift differential pay?

Throughout your life, you have likely been inundated with the idea that the typical workday begins by punching the clock at 9:00 am and calling it quits around 5:00 pm. Indeed, this is what most might consider to be a standard workday. Yet your job in Kansas City may require you to work odd hours, such as during the evening or even a graveyard shift. While it may be possible to adapt your daily schedule to accommodate such a work shift, it is also recognized that working such hours can take a physical and emotional toll on you.
