Man sues state Bar Association over wrongful termination

California employees can expect not to be face retaliation in the workplace. Retaliation occurs when an employee is punished for reporting illegal behavior, complaining about unsafe work conditions or otherwise engaging in whistleblowing. If an employee's contract is terminated or a person is fired in retaliation then according to California employment laws a wrongful termination may have taken place.

Do California workers have a right to overtime pay?

California workers often go into a job knowing that they will have to work a lot. The standard work week in the United States includes eight hours a day for five days, or 40 hours a week. For many workers, however, it is not unusual for them to work well over 40 hours a week. While California law does not prohibit these extra hours, it does reward workers for the time they work over 40 hours a week. This reward is overtime pay.

Wrongful termination can be devastating -- let us help

Most Californians rely on their jobs as a way to support themselves and their families. But, for many people, their jobs are something more than that. For some, their job is a source of pride, a way to accomplish goals and work as part of a broader community. When that is suddenly and illegally taken away from someone the results are devastating. People can lose not only their income, but a major part of their lives.

At-will employment in California

California employees can be classified in a number of different ways. It is important for employees and employers to understand what type of employee a person is. This is because the classification will effect the person's rights when it comes to termination.
