One Of The Most Successful Workers' Rights Trial Law Firms In California

November 2018 Archives

How long does one have to file a whistleblower retaliation claim?

Most people in California generally try to avoid breaking the law. The consequences if they are caught are generally bad enough that people do not want to risk it. This is true for companies as well. However, just like there are many individuals who break the law, there are also many companies who break the law. However, before people or companies can get in trouble for breaking the law, they first must be caught. So, someone needs to report the illegal acts to the appropriate authorities.

Sex discrimination and the Equal Pay Act

Both men and women can work similar jobs in California and perform similar job tasks. Therefore, it seems like it would be common sense that both men and women in such situations would earn a similar income. However, for many years this has not been the case. While women are slowly catching up, many employers pay women a lower income or do not offer them the same opportunities as men. However, this is sex discrimination and it has been illegal for many years under the Equal Pay Act.

The Wonderful Company allegedly wrongfully terminates employee

Many people in California may not be specifically aware of The Wonderful Company, but they most likely are familiar with their products. The company produces Wonderful pistachios and almonds, Halos mandarin oranges, Fiji Water, Pom Wonderful juice and other products. The company has been very successful and is run by one of the wealthiest women in the world. However, women who work for her say that she does not seem to like women getting pregnant.

Hospital employee given chance to show disability bias at trial

California's 6th District Appellate Court recently remanded a case of disability discrimination back to the trial court level. The employee, who argues her firing was due to her struggles with PTSD and severe depression, now has a chance to have the motives of her firing examined by a trial court. 

What does it mean to be an at-will employee in California?

Whether they like it or not, most people in California need to work to earn an income to support themselves and their families. Although these people as employees have to come to work each day they are scheduled, and follow the internal rules of the company, most do not have a contract stating that they are hired for a specific period of time. In fact, if the employee does sign an employee handbook or other type of contract, it may specifically state that they are an at-will employee.

Helping whistleblowers after employers retaliate

There are many laws that people in California must follow. When they do not follow these laws, they could be charged with crimes. This is true for businesses as well. There are many laws and regulations that they must follow as well. These could be laws regarding certain financial transactions, environmental laws, labor laws such as wage and hour laws and other laws. However, sometimes it can be difficult for the government to know when these laws are being broken.

Google employees walk out in protest of sexual harassment at work

While there have been many industries that have been exposed through the #metoo movement, the tech industry in particular has been under fire for a variety of issues. These include accusations in regards to the number of women in the industry and their ability to move up in the companies. Also, there have been a number of claims regarding sexual harassment that women in the industry experience.

Calculating damages in a wrongful termination lawsuit

There are many reasons people stop working for their current employer in California. It could be that they decided to quit because the company was not a good fit for them or because they received a better opportunity elsewhere. However, it could also be because the company laid them off or fired them. While in many situations being fired is legal, there are many other reasons when a firing could be illegal.

What actions in the workplace are considered sexual harassment?

Not all people in California love their jobs and even those who do have days when they simply do not want to go. This could be because the work is mundane, they have an overbearing boss, their co-workers are annoying or other reasons. However, most of those types of reasons are legal and if the person wants to keep their job they must put up with it. However, there are other reasons that people may not want to go to work which can include illegal conduct by managers or co-workers.
