Wage and hour violations occur in many different ways

Have you ever felt like you need to become an employment law expert to determine if you are receiving fair treatment at work?

Stand up to illegal workplace discrimination in California

Here in California, we would like to believe that people succeed or not succeed based only on their own merits. Unfair and illegal discrimination should have no place. Unfortunately, this is far from the reality faced by many workers. As recent and not-so-recent headlines have shown, unfair discrimination happens all the time. One would think that large corporations should be immune from this because they can afford to monitor employee conduct. But as we recently discussed, there have been allegations that a high-profile California auto manufacturer has not been doing this.

What constitutes wrongful termination in California?
