What are my rights when it comes to sexual harassment?

When we go to work, we expect to be a part of a professional, appropriate, productive environment. The last thing on our minds is that we may become the victim of sexual harassment.

Too old to be hired, too young to retire

Age discrimination is alive and well. Employees exist in a culture where the founder of Facebook was quoted as saying "Young people are just smarter." A cosmetic surgeon in Silicon Valley, CA said that it is becoming more and more common for people in their 20s to come in, terrified that they might be perceived by their company as "old."

Salon workers, bartenders and restaurant servers are probably some of the best well-known types of tipped workers.
