Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law

California doctor wins wrongful termination suit

Employees are bound to see all sorts of behavior in their workplaces. Some of it is good, and some of it may be bad. When employees see illegal behavior, those employees have the right to report that behavior without fear that they are going to lose their jobs. In other words, when employees act as whistleblowers, they cannot be fired in retaliation of the whistleblowing.

FMLA and cold and flu season

As the holidays quickly approach more people will be gathering together to celebrate. When large groups of people get together, germs are likely to be spread around. Winter is commonly known as cold and flu season, and these holiday gathers will certainly contribute to the spread of these common illnesses. As a result, many California workers will be forced to use sick days in order to recover at home.

Company in California fined for violating minimum wage laws

California employees go to work to earn money. This money is usually very important for employees who need it to pay for their everyday needs and expenses. In order to make sure that California employees have enough money to meet their needs, employee laws include minimum wage laws. In California employees must earn at least $8.00 an hour in most cases. However, not every employer abides by these minimum wage laws.

New legislation looks to reduce workplace discrimination

Over the past several years, legislatures in California and across the country have expanded rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals. These rights have been instrumental in allowing members of the GLBT community to be on an equal footing with other people.

Sexual harassment suits filed against Los Angeles Councilmen

Sometimes it seems as if sex is everywhere in today's culture. While that may be true for pop culture, unwanted sexual behavior has no place in California workplaces. While sexual images may be pervasive on television, in movies and in music, California employees do not have to go to work and deal with sexual comments, jokes, images or assault. California employee laws protect employees and provide punishments for employers when employees are subjected to sexual harassment.
