What Is The Federal False Claims Act?

what-is-federal-false-claims-act.pngThe Federal False Claims Act is a federal law and primary litigation tool which is designed to prevent fraud against the United States government.

Workplace Retaliation: Eeoc Proposes New Guidelines

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently issued some proposed revisions to processing and investigating workplace retaliation charges, which would offer new protections to employees. Because retaliation claims continue to be the most common of all workplace discrimination charges (33,800 were filed in 2015), the new guidelines are sorely needed - especially since the retaliation guidance hasn't been updated since 1998.

California At-will Employment & Wrongful Termination: Common Questions

As an employee in the state of California, you likely know that California is considered an "at-will" employment state. But what does that term mean, exactly? You may be wondering if your boss can simply fire you without a good reason. Technically, this can be true. But you could also be the victim of wrongful termination or workplace discrimination due to certain exceptions to the at-will rule.

Eeoc Releases Transgender Bathroom Access Fact Sheet

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published a transgender employee fact sheet on Monday that concludes it's a civil rights violation to deny transgender workers the right to use gender-identity appropriate bathrooms. This is a step in the right direction in giving transgender individuals the freedom to be themselves without fear of being subjected to workplace discrimination.

California Suitable Seating Laws And Employee Rights

In many employment situations, California employees are required to spend a lot of time on their feet. Workers such as cashiers, bank tellers, customer service representatives in retail stores, and employees in other workplace situations where workers are primarily required to work while standing up have additional protections under a recent state court decision.

Comparing The California Fair Pay Act And The Equal Pay Act

As of January 1, 2016, California law was amended to include new employee protections under the Fair Pay Act. Under the new law, employees have the right to be paid equally, regardless of gender, for substantially similar work at the same employer. The purpose of the law is to help eliminate the gender pay gap, in which women often are paid significantly less than men for similar work.
