Your workers' compensation rights in California

One of the most fundamental rights for workers across the United States is the right to gain compensation for damages when they become injured in the workplace. The vast majority of workers are able to file a claim when their injury took place while carrying out work-related activities, and all employees covered by workers' compensation are able to file a claim regardless of their immigration status.

The different types of workplace retaliation

As an employee, you are automatically immune from being subject to any type of revenge from your employer. While you could be fired for several reasons, it is not acceptable for you to be fired, or have any type of negative action taken against you, for simply making a complaint or reporting behavior that you thought was inappropriate.

How to properly make a wage claim

Employees deserve to be paid the wages agreed upon in an employment contract. When an employee is not paid the agreed-upon wages, he or she is well within their rights to file a wage claim with the United States Department of Labor. Today, we will explore the process for making a wage claim so you can do so accordingly if the need ever arises.

How you can prove employer retaliation

Facing retaliation by your employer is not easy. This can make it very difficult for you to get up and go to work each day. You likely don't want to face your supervisor and might start burning through your sick and personal days, putting you behind on your work. Let's explore how you can prove employer retaliation.

Job termination and your final paycheck: Things to know

When it comes to your professional life, there's nothing worse than learning that your employment is being terminated. As frustrating and disappointing as it may be, you should immediately turn your attention to protecting your legal rights.

Why do company owners, supervisors retaliate?

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), retaliation is one of the most common forms of discrimination in the workplace. There are times when this is purposeful and times when it's not, but either way, it can have a negative impact on the victim.

Reporting a wage and hour violation: Know your rights

As an employee, there are both federal and state laws in place to protect your legal rights. For example, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is in place to ensure that all employers pay the federal minimum wage, along with overtime when required.

Yes, hourly workers should receive overtime pay for extra hours

Many people who work in manufacturing, customer service and other fields are hourly workers. As an hourly worker, you have certain rights under both state and federal law. Unfortunately, many employers will not respect those rights unless you actively stand up for them. One of those rights is the right to overtime pay if you work more than 40 hours in any given pay period.

What's the primary right of workers?

As an employee, you have a right to work in a safe environment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) covers most employers and employees in the private sector and provides regulations and oversight to keep workplaces safe. If there has ever been an injury in your workplace, OSHA likely responded and assessed if the employer should receive a violation or fines.
