Medical leave for cabinet secretary after Los Angeles car crashes

Life can be unpredictable at times for residents in Los Angeles, California. People get sick, their spouses get sick or they welcome a new baby. In each of these situations, the last thing people want to think about is whether their job is safe. Thankfully, federal employment law protects some employees in these situations through the Family Medical Leave Act.

California university accused of sex discrimination settles case

The state of California and the federal government have passed many laws to help keep employees safe while at work. One way these laws help to protect employees in California is by outlawing workplace discrimination. Under these employment laws, employers cannot discriminate against employees based on a variety of different factors. These include race, religion, national origin, marital status and sex.

Cheaper for employers to maintain safe working conditions

It is in both the employer and the employee's best interests to have a safe work environment. This way, employers have productive employees who can do their jobs without interruption and employees can work without fear for their physical well-being.
