Wrongful termination claim against yoga company


State and federal employment laws and legal protections are available to protect employees placed in vulnerable situations. A lawsuit for wrongful termination was recently brought in Los Angeles by a teaching recruiter for a popular system of yoga. The woman is suing the Bikram Yoga company and the yoga system's founder for wrongful termination, asserting that Bikram Choudhury called her a failure and noted he should have fired her previously. Choudhury has been the subject of multiple sexual harassment lawsuits by former employees.

Employer obligations to prevent and correct sexual harassment


In California, employers are subject to the harassment regulations in the Fair Employment and Housing Act. Under these provisions, employees are protected from harassing conduct based on sex, gender or pregnancy, regardless of whether the conduct was based on sexual desire.

Employees of a company often enjoy significant benefits from their employer. Independent contractors, although they are often paid more money than employees, do not enjoy these benefits and have to cover the related expenses from their salary. It is therefore important to properly identify these types of workers to ensure that they are being appropriately compensated.

Our attorneys advocate for protection from discrimination


Employment discrimination and harassment can happen through the creation of a hostile work environment or the occurrence of an adverse employment action as a result of an employee's reporting of illegal activity. It can consist of improper treatment by an employer or their improperly speaking to or about an employee in a negative manner.
