Losing a job to retaliation can be devastating

In modern-day American, securing a stable job is the cornerstone of living a productive and fulfilled life. Having a job taken away as the result of retaliation is something that can psychologically and financially scar a person for the rest of his or her life. It can be tough to recover from something as catastrophic as this, but California workers should know that established employment laws offer protection from harassment and retaliation.

Age discrimination is happening more and more in America

Due to the ever-changing economic environment in modern California, some businesses are doing anything and everything to stay afloat. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for business owners to take drastic measures at the expense of dedicated and hard-working employees. As the American workforce ages, companies and businesses are weeding out older employees in order to portray a more youthful and exuberant image to consumers. Allegations of age discrimination are making headlines around the country these days.

Family and Medical Leave: Man allegedly fired for using benefits

For many California citizens, the main reason for obtaining full-time employment is not about the salary, but the benefits that come with a full-time job. These benefits include health insurance, paid vacations and workers' compensation. Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement for employees who are forced to take time off due to an on-the-job injury or illness. Additionally, eligible workers in the United States may receive unpaid Family and Medical Leave if they suffer serious injuries that prevent them from working or need extended time off to take care of a sick loved one.

Whistleblowers are protected by law from retaliation

A whistleblower is a person who reports illegal or unethical activity in the workplace. In the state of California, whistleblower laws exist to protect these employees from retaliation. A former middle school principle in another state has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the school district over allegations that she was retaliated against and fired.

Workers file suit citing disturbing allegations of discrimination

In a perfect world, every person would be equal and receive fair treatment. Unfortunately, the world today is far from perfect and thousands of people across the country are discriminated against every single day. Treating a person differently or unfairly because of differing characteristics is the definition of discrimination. California residents who experience this in the workplace can take legal action.
