Your employer cannot require you to work overtime without pay

Many people with jobs in California get paid on an hourly basis. Instead of receiving a salary, they get paid for each hour they work for their employer.

No one comes to work in the morning with the intention of ending up severely injured or sickened. However, people do end up hurt in the course of completing job duties every day in California.

In the not-so-distant past, if a woman became pregnant while she was employed, it could mean the instant loss of her job. However, at the end of the 1970s, U.S. lawmakers enacted the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978. This act serves as a powerful law that protects women from any kind of employment-related discrimination if they become pregnant.
