What should independent contractors do with unpaid wage claims?

Independent contractors make up a significant portion of the U.S. workforce. In May of 2017, the share of workers who fell into this category was between 1.3% and 3.8%. Many of these employees do business in California, and while working as an independent contractor does have its perks, there is also the downside that a client may not always pay on time or at all. 

Many employees suffer through retaliation and harrassment

Employees in California and across the United States have rights. This means that no employee should have to put up with retaliation or harassment of any kind in the workplace. Unfortunately, workers throughout the country routinely endure harassment because they feel tied to their job or they may think that's just how life is. A food company in California is at the center of a lawsuit filed by an employee who alleges she was a victim of harassment and retaliation.

Women still endure harassment and discrimination in the workplace

Throughout American history, woman have had to silently endure sexual harassment and discrimination. These days, more and more women are choosing to speak out and stand up for what's right. Because of this bravery, significant progress has been made for women's rights in California and across the country. Unfortunately, harassment and discrimination against women still occurs far too often in the workplace. Recently, a woman in another state filed a lawsuit against her former employer over allegations of sexual harassment.

Woman allegedly fired in retaliation for taking military leave

For most people in California, their job is their livelihood. Without a way to earn a living, basic needs cannot be met. Undoubtedly, losing employment is stressful and can have far-reaching effects. However, being fired in retaliation is something that can affect an individual for the rest of his or her life.

Family and Medical Leave: What employees need to know

Without question, major life events can interfere with an employee's ability to be present at work. Events such as a major illness, surgical procedure or the need to take care of a close family member who has fallen ill can cause complications for employees in California. Fortunately, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was passed in 1993 to help workers balance family demands and work responsibilities. FMLA leave is a wonderful benefit for employees, but there are some stipulations.
