Los Angeles Trans Woman Starts Business to Help Companies Conform to Transgender Rights Laws

Recently, transgender rights have been a hot topic in news headlines and have been fiercely debated in California and across the country. While acceptance of LGBT individuals is certainly expanding nationally, California employment law offers some of the strongest protections to LGBT employees in the nation. But many California businesses don't know how to properly handle transgender employees who are transitioning on the job. Some aren't even aware what is legal under California employment law when it comes to gender discrimination - particularly discrimination based on gender identity.

California Wage and Hour Laws: Common Questions

But what constitutes disability discrimination under California law?

Wrongful Termination Lawsuits in Los Angeles: Real Cases

Do you think you may be a victim of wrongful termination? While both federal and state laws protect employees in California from this unlawful employer behavior, it still occurs.

The exception to this is that employer cannot terminate you for illegal reasons.
