Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law

May 2014 Archives

Woman claims religious discrimination led to her termination

Los Angeles, California employees have the right to go to work and be free from discrimination. Under federal employment laws, employers cannot participate in or condone discrimination based on a person's religion, national origin, race, gender or disability. If an employer learns about this type of discrimination in the workplace, the employer should work to stop the conduct. Furthermore, an employer is barred from retaliating against an employee that complains about illegal discrimination at work.

Avoiding sexual harassment in the workplace

In California, most employees are at-will employees. This status limits the amount of protections that an employee is entitled to in the workplace. However, federal and state law has set some rules when it comes to acceptable treatment of employees. Employers do not have free reign to treat employees however they like.

California worker reinstated after termination

The project manager for a California jail project will return to work following his termination. According to reports, the man worked for the county for more than a decade before being terminated. The county claims that the man was let go in July 2013 because he claimed that he was a professional engineer. However, he was not licensed in the state of California, but was a P.E. in another state. The county claimed that he knowingly broke the code of conduct by using this designation.
