California business fined for violating minimum wage laws

California employees work hard for their money. In most cases, people's wages are necessary for them to pay their bills and support their families. In order to make sure people are paid fairly, the state of California and the U.S. federal government have set minimum wage laws. These employee laws are meant to make sure that employers do not take advantage of employees by paying them too little.

California see increase in sexual harassment claims

While it may be common for people to make sexual jokes or comments to their friends or family, sexual jokes, comments or images are almost never appropriate at work. Despite this fact, sometimes sexual innuendo, or sexually explicit behavior makes its way into the workplace. When this behavior is unwanted and creates a hostile work environment then it can constitute sexual harassment.

"Storage Wars" wrongful termination suit allowed by judge

Most California employees hope that their employers are honest and law abiding. While most employers probably are, some are not. When employers don't follow laws, it is likely that employees will see the violations. In these instances, employees may want to report the violations or ask their employers to comply. In other words, employees may act as whistleblowers.

California cop sues over FMLA violations

Most people know that the Family Medical Leave Act protects certain workers from losing their jobs after they have had a new baby. However, the FMLA goes farther than that and protects people who need to take time off of work to care for an ailing family member. For workers who qualify, their employer must hold their job for them for up to 12 weeks. Furthermore, employees can not face retaliation for taking this necessary time off.
