LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carney R. Shegerian, founder of Shegerian & Associates, a Santa Monica-based law firm specializing in employee rights, has produced an article titled “Exploring the Fair Employment Opportunity Act of 2014.”
Shegerian’s article describes pending legislation designed to combat discrimination against the unemployed on a national level. The piece explores the origin of the bill and the hearings that led to its introduction as well as a brief analysis of what local and state governmental agencies have been doing with regard to the issue. The article also describes recent research that has shown that more and more incidents of bias against hiring unemployed workers have been occurring.
The full article is available on the Shegerian & Associates website blog and is one of a growing library of blog entries from Shegerian & Associates designed to provide advice and education about employment issues such as discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, whistleblowing and other relevant topics.
“Discrimination is all too common during the hiring process and is often challenging to prove,” said Shegerian. “With an increasing number of incidents being reported about unemployed people not getting fair opportunities, this new pending legislation is welcome indeed. We applaud the lawmakers working to get this bill passed.”
