Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law Schedule a Consultation

July 2015 Archives

Important things that pregnant employees

The American economy appears to be improving, which means that more jobs will be added as the summer goes on. But the reality of fickle employers is simple; they may not want to hire a pregnant employee. Even more troubling, many employers may not understand the rules and regulations that protect pregnant employees. Because of this, employees who are expecting may be subject to improper actions and lost wages.

Your sexual orientation should not affect the workplace

California employees head to their workplaces every day for the purpose of completing their jobs and getting paid. Factors that don't relate to their job performances should not affect the employees' work environment. Similarly to discrimination against an employee's national origin, religion or race, today a person's sexual orientation is sometimes used as a basis for harassment and discrimination.

When is it illegal to terminate an employee in California?

California employers have a lot of power over their employees. From telling their employees what time they have to be at work to what employees must wear and how often they can take breaks, employers control many aspects of a person's life. Employers also have a great deal of control when it comes to terminating an employee. Employers can fire a person for almost any reason, and for no reason at all.

Quid pro quo and sexual harassment claims

California employees have the right to work in an environment that is free from sexual harassment. People do not need to work in a hostile work environment where they are subjected to unwanted sexual advances, sexual assault or other unwanted sexually explicit behavior. If this type of conduct occurs in a workplace and an employee was fired for refusing the sexual advances, then the employee may be entitled to damages.
