5 LGBT Organizations in Los Angeles You Need to Know About

In the News: Texas-Based Employer Attempts to Avoid California Employment Law, Suffers Huge Blow

texas-employer-avoiding-california-employment-law-suffers-blow.jpgRecently, in Verdugo v. Alliantgroup L.P., 2015, Cal. App. Lexis 466, a Texas based employer's attempt to avoid employment law regulations in California backfired, giving a California-based employee home court advantage. Alliantgroup, L.P., a tax consulting firm headquartered in Texas, created a forum selection clause and related choice of law clause in an employment agreement that would have required an employee, who worked in their Irvine, California office, to litigate claims in Texas under Texas law. However, the clauses were deemed unenforceable by the California Court of Appeal, protecting the California worker's rights to litigate claims under California law.

Sexual Orientation Discrimination in California: What LGBT Employees Should Know

If you're an LGBT Californian and have been discriminated against due to your sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace, you are not alone. Although it can be difficult to replace the dignity that may have been taken away from you due to this type of employment discrimination, State and Federal laws can protect you from sexual orientation discrimination at work.

What California Employees Should Know About Whistleblower Retaliation

If you've reported illegal conduct in the workplace and have been retaliated against by your employer for doing so, you could be a good candidate for filing a whistleblower complaint in the state of California. Just as there are state and federal workplace retaliation laws in place to protect you from your employer illegally retaliating against you for other reasons, what you might not know is that special whistleblower retaliation laws can also protect you from specific negative employment actions unfairly enforced in the workplace.
