February 2018 Archives

Special protections for nurses who report unsafe conditions

When people go to the doctor in California, they usually go there to treat a particular medical condition. They expect that while at the medical facility to receive care that the facility and medical professionals are following all rules and regulations to ensure that they receive the proper care. However, this does not always happen and sometimes there are violations. This could because of the costs associated with following the regulation or for many other reasons.

How the new tax law affects employee benefits

A new federal tax reform bill signed into law at the end of 2017 and put into effect on January 1, 2018 could lead to changes for many employees across the country. As corporations begin adapting to the significant amount of revisions made by the new law, employees should be prepared for both the positive and negative outcomes that may be reflected in their benefits and in their paychecks.

Indicators that one may have been wrongfully terminated

There are many reasons that employers in California decide to terminate certain employees and most of them are legal. California is an at-will state meaning that absent an employment contract for a specific period of time, the employer can pretty much fire an employee for almost any reason. However, the employees do have certain protections even without an employment contract. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on the employee being in a protected class.

Rules for transgender bathroom use in the workplace

When people in California go to work usually their only concern is making sure that they do their job correctly and up to the expected standards. They expect that they will only be judged based on their work performance and not on something that is out of their control. Unfortunately, some people are judged on things such as their sex or sexual orientation and others.

Basic procedure for starting a Qui Tam lawsuit

In order to prove criminal cases in California, the police or other authorities generally need tips and information from witnesses to the crime or who have received information about it. The authorities then use the information to pursue the case and prosecute the appropriate parties. The authorities cannot be everywhere at all times and need help from the public to do their job. This is true when companies violate various regulations as well. The proper authorities need inside information in order to build a case and hold the offending companies accountable for their actions.

Cable network accused of gender discrimination in new lawsuit

People in California have a right to free speech and saying offensive things in public is not necessarily a crime. However, one's first amendment rights do have limitations in certain private situations. One of these situations is in the workplace. People cannot make crude comments about people or even tell offensive jokes if they make others uncomfortable or are harassing in nature. These could be comments about sex, religion race and others and people need to be careful what they say.

What constitutes a hostile work environment?

People in California have many different types of personalities. These personality traits usually dictate how the person deals with other people and how they handle certain situations. This is true for managers and supervisors in the workplace as well. As people are aware, different people manage different ways. Some are more aggressive than others as well. Many employees may feel intimidated by intense aggressive bosses and it may affect their work performance.

California Legislative staff finally has whistleblower protection

Employees in California have certain protections in the workplace. Most of these protections are to prevent employers from discriminating against workers in protected classes such as their sex, age, race, sexual orientation, religion, disability and others. However, many employees also have whistleblower retaliation protections as well.

The wage gap between men and woman is still a problem

There are many things in California society that change over time, but somethings can take longer than others to completely change. For a long time white males dominated most power positions in business as well as other areas of society. Over time this has slowly changed and men of different ethnicities and women have made some gains in being able to get into these positions. However, statistics show that as a society these groups still lag behind.
