April 2012 Archives

Unsafe working conditions at LAX lead to possible retaliation

Los Angeles employees have a right to safe working conditions when they are on the job. This is not only important for the employees themselves, but also for the public they are serving. California employment law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for speaking out against unsafe working conditions.

As this blog detailed in previous coverage, California employees have protections under the law from being fired from their jobs on grounds of unlawful discrimination. When employees are fired because of unlawful discrimination, they have been wrongfully terminated and have legal remedies available to them.

Justice in sexual harassment cases could be delayed

More than 100 female employees of one of the largest truck driving companies in the nation, based in the Midwest, have complained of unwanted sexual advances from male drivers during training rides across the country. The women gave detailed accounts to a federal agency of how they faced groping and sexual assault in the trucks and how receiving a passing grade depended on their reactions to the advances.

When a California employee experiences a wrongful termination, the employee's world can be turned upside down. Under California employment law, it is unlawful to fire an employee for a discriminatory reason. This unlawful discrimination includes age, race, religion, sexual orientation and disability status. One disability in particular that employers cannot discriminate against is HIV status.
