The majority of people in California are healthy, can see well, walk normally and have full use of both their arms. However, there are many others who have disabilities. People with disabilities may have difficulties performing certain physical tasks, but they are more than capable mentally to perform the same tasks as those without disabilities. However, in order to do these tasks they may need some physical accommodations to perform them.
There are many reasons why people in California lose their jobs. Many of these reasons involve the conduct or work performance of the employee. Other times it has to do with the performance as a company as a whole and layoffs occur due to the company's poor performance. However, sometimes it has to do with an employer discriminating against an employee because of age, race, sex or other protected classes that the employee cannot control at all.
Being fired from a job is one of the most stressful situations a person can go through. Losing a job for an unlawful reason, however, can introduce an entirely new level of stress and anger. Handling these situations as calmly as possible is crucial in forming a wrongful termination case, as is seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney. But first, understanding what constitutes as wrongful termination is necessary.
One fact of life is that people in California will continue to grow older. There is no way around that fact. As people age, physically they may feel different and may experience other changes. However, most of the time these differences do not eliminate their need to work and earn an income. Also, most of the time people are perfectly capable of working as they grow older.
For a California public agency, a recent wrongful termination lawsuit is only one of its legal problems and evidence that government is not immune from employment law problems. A former administrative law judge at the California Public Utilities Commission filed a wrongful termination lawsuit earlier this month alleging that the agency engaged in whistleblower retaliation and racial bias.
If you are an employee in California, you are employed in an at-will state. This means that you can be terminated or demoted by an employer at any time, for any reason and without warning. As a California-based worker, you can also quit your job without reason or warning.
If you've recently been laid off, you probably have a lot of questions for your employer when it comes to your final paycheck and employee benefits package. Layoffs can also be particularly confusing if you feel that your employer's reasons for laying you off may not have been legal in the first place.
A wrongful termination lawsuit was recently filed against Eddie Money by former employee Glenn Symmonds, and Symmonds'fiancée Tami Landrum. Symmonds was once employed as the famed rocker's drummer.
Even if you had the best intentions for defending one of your colleagues; whether the individual was demoted, fired or even harassed on the job, your employer may still choose to fire you. However, the question you should be asking is this: Was your firing legal? If not, your employer may have subjected you to wrongful termination and retaliation.
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.
