More workers are getting fired for taking care of sick parents

By now you’ve heard plenty of stories regarding companies firing workers for getting sick for too long or having a baby. Many of these scenarios often end up being a violation of California and potentially federal law as the employers are unaware of how certain employment regulations work or try to twist the employee’s condition into an excuse to fire them.

As the age discrimination law turns 52, incidents persist

It was in 1967 that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act was passed to protect workers over the age of 40 from facing discrimination and loss of their job due to age. Unfortunately, over 50 years later it seems the law is not doing much to deter companies from continuing age discrimination.

Determining if you were a victim of wrongful termination

Because most employment in California is "at will," it can be challenging to prove wrongful termination. At will employment means that employers and employees may end the working arrangement with or without a cause. However, this does not mean that employers can break employment laws to get rid of a worker.

Gender discrimination in the workplace is still a problem

It is hard to believe that gender or sex discrimination still happens in the 21st century. However, if you pay attention to headlines or news reports, you know that it remains a problem in the United States. Now, it is not just about favoring a male worker over a female worker (or vice versa). It is about workplace mistreatment of gay and transgender workers as well.
