Seeking protection from employer retaliation


Employees in California, and the rest of the country, deserves to enjoy their job and feel like they are treated fairly by their employer and their co-workers. However, for many employees that are members of a protected class, or those that have reported compliance or safety concerns regarding their employer, this may not be the case. When an employee feels that he or she is being discriminated or retaliated against by his or her employer, it is important for he or she to understand and protect his or her rights to a safe and enjoyable work environment.

Protection from discrimination due to pregnancy


As residents of Los Angeles may know, federal law prohibits discrimination against any worker by his or her employer if he or she is a member of a protected class. These classes include race, religion and gender, among many others. These protections may be governed further with regards to specific types of discrimination. For example, female employees that are pregnant are protected from discrimination by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.

What conduct establishes an employee's constructive discharge?


Wrongful termination of an employee occurs when an employer fires an employee for illegal reasons. Such a termination is typically done through an express action by the employer. However, there are certain situations in which the employer may attempt to make the employee quit on their own terms.

Exempt and non-exempt employee classification


Wage and hour disputes between employers and employees can originate from various circumstances, the most common including a company failing to pay their employees properly for overtime payments, or they may purposely or inadvertently classify their employees incorrectly. Employee misclassification can lead to improper benefit provisions and inaccurate wages paid to employees.
