California lawmakers have passed Assembly Bill 5, a measure that reporters are already saying will overhaul the landscape of employment law in this state. The measure now awaits the signature of the Governor. The Governor has been supportive of this Bill.

New law could change the gig economy

The California Senate may be ruling on a new gig economy law in the coming weeks, according to a Sept. 9 report.

Harassment in the workplace: Document everything

Despite the fact that Title VII is a federal law that prohibits discrimination, many women in the workplace still struggle with sexual harassment. If you are someone who deals with harassment on the job, know that there are steps you can take to report this treatment and get help.

Review of California's whistleblower protections

A Los Angeles resident who reads the news regularly will frequently hear stories about how businesses of all sizes got caught violating either a state or federal law.
