California sexual harassment suit is a drop in industry's bucket

Some of California's business sectors -- such as the technology industry centered in Silicon Valley -- have been male dominated since their inception. Though some women do find success in this field, there are still a number of barriers to success and fair treatment. This fact has the potential to cause numerous problems for female employees.

Clothing store Wet Seal sued for widespread race discrimination

In California, it is not acceptable for employers to discriminate against employees because of their race. Fortunately, employment laws are designed to protect those who suffer from this type of discrimination.

Doctor sues over damage to reputation for wrongful dismissal

While many employers can fire at-will employees for almost any reason, there are certain protections designed to prevent workers from being terminated for unfair reasons. Employers in California cannot fire employees for discriminatory reasons or in retaliation against the employee. When employees are fired for unscrupulous reasons, or an employee's contract is terminated for discriminatory reasons, a wrongful dismissal may have taken place.

Federal enclaves create problems for employees facing retaliation

Employees have many things that they have to worry about at work just to complete their jobs. The one thing they should not have to worry about is safe working conditions. If, for some reason, a California employee does have a concern about the safety conditions at their job, they should be able to express their concerns to their supervisors without fear of retaliation.

California sexual harassment claims settled for $1.4 million

Every workplace should be free from harassment. This includes sexual harassment. California employment law protects employees from all types of sexual harassment including sexual assault, unwanted sexual advances, sexual gestures, derogatory comments or jokes and sexual threats. California employees are also protected from retaliation for complaining about sexual harassment.
