Male Disney Cruise employee alleges workplace discrimination

While women are far more likely to suffer sexual harassment and workplace discrimination on the job in New York, men can also be victimized at work. A former labor analyst at Disney Cruise Line has filed a lawsuit against the company, saying that his female manager bullied him about his age, engaged in inappropriate and unwanted conversations about her sex life with other employees and refused to promote him. The man says that he faced both sex and age discrimination on the job, a situation that may be statistically uncommon but can be equally damaging on an individual level.

Equal pay for equal work is protected by the law

For many New York residents, equal pay and equal compensation for work are important issues. The freedom that employees have to work in an environment free of discrimination is backed by a number of federal laws. These laws are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the United States.

In a study published in 2017 in JAMA, roughly one-third of physicians who are mothers say that they face discrimination at work. This is despite the fact that being a doctor is one of the most prestigious jobs that New York and other workers can hold. The research looked at 947 responses to a survey posted in a Facebook group in 2016. Among the issues that the participants cited included a lack of support while pregnant and less pay compared to their colleagues.

Facebook under fire for alleged discrimination

A former employee of Facebook has made statements claiming that the social media giant failed to stop discriminatory behavior against black users and employees. People who use Facebook in New York might be interested in the details of the situation, which raises employment discrimination issues. The former employee publicly posted an internal Facebook memo he had written, calling out the company for removing posts by black people who were speaking out against racism.
