You can prove that you were wrongfully terminated

Wrongful terminations are not as uncommon as you may think, and that's why you need to protect yourself. As someone who has been terminated from your position, you may be concerned that you were terminated in a manner that was against the law. Your reasoning is that you recently reported harassment at work, and now you suddenly are out of the job.

How can you recognize workplace retaliation?

Workplace retaliation is a serious problem. When people have a problem at work, they need to be able to tell their supervisors, the human resources department or other agencies without the risk of that coming back to hurt them. People should retain the right to make sure they're being treated fairly and can report harassment or other issues without losing their jobs.

Workers' compensation denied? Get the benefits you deserve

You got hurt on the job and expected your employer to help you get the compensation you deserved through workers' compensation. Just a little while after your accident, you are told that workers' compensation has denied your claim. Now, you think you might be out of luck, but the truth is that there are some things you can do.

Employees have a right to a workplace without discrimination

Discrimination violates your civil rights in California. The Ralph Civil Rights Act states that it is illegal for anyone to be violent toward or to threaten to be violent toward a person because of his or her national origin, age, sex, marital status, gender identity, political affiliation and sexual orientation. The act also protects other people, and this list is not all-inclusive.

Do you deserve more money for working overtime in California?

In California, there are laws that protect workers who work overtime. While there are some positions that are exempt from overtime laws and regulations, the majority of people working in the state are able to seek overtime if they work more than a 40-hour week. In general, the law states that no person, except the exempt, may work over 40 hours in one week without receiving 1.5 times the normal regular rate of pay for any hours over the traditional 40-hour workweek. Anyone who works more than 12 hours in one day should be paid double for hours extending past 12 and again for all hours that are worked in excess of eight on the seventh day of continual work.
