Interested in a quick overview of California labor and employment laws? Break out the popcorn and turn up your speakers. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has released several short videos, 90 seconds to 3 minutes in length each, offering short overviews of housing and employment laws. The videos are directed and acted by DFEH employees and are surprisingly watchable and informative. The actors pose as co-workers engaging in question and answer dialogues about harassment and discrimination laws.
Following are the four videos in the series which the DFEH has dubbed “Equal Rights 101”:
1. Equal Rights 101: Pregnancy Discrimination and Family Leave
2. Equal Rights 101: Pre-Employment Inquiry
3. Equal Rights 101: Reasonable Accommodation of Disability and Religious Belief
4. Equal Rights 101: Workplace Sexual Harassment and Retaliation
