DFEH Uses YouTube To Teach Employee Rights

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has produced a series of youth outreach videos entitled “Equal Rights 101” under a grant from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The content includes pregnancy discrimination, pre-employment inquiry, reasonable accommodation, and sexual harassment in the workplace. Although the videos are geared toward youth in employment, the videos are an interesting training tool for both employers and employees.

The eight-minute video can be seen at, where you can watch, share, e-mail, post comments, and rate the videos. In addition to YouTube, the videos will also be posted on a special link to DFEH’s Web under construction, California wiki, and other similar sites. Accompanying the videos will be the attached designs for wallet-sized cards and posters in the same contemporary design. In September, the DFEH will distribute the videos in the form of DVDs, along with posters and cards, to every California high school, State libraries, and other venues.
