LAPD officer brings lawsuit for sexual harassment

Residents in California and elsewhere are well aware that they are afforded rights in the work environment. Unfortunately, these rights are not always protected and are sometimes violated by an employer or fellow co-worker. Victims of sexual harassment are protected by the resources and remedies available through the legal process.

Workers owed unpaid overtime have legal protections

When an employer has taken unfair and perhaps illegal actions to avoid paying an employee, it can have a significant impact on workers and their families. Detrimental impacts on their livelihoods can create suffering for workers if they are incorrectly classified or are victims of unpaid overtime. When workers put in extra overtime hours at work, they understandably expect to receive overtime pay.

What is sexual harassment in a California workplace?

Federal and California laws protect workers from sexual harassment in the workplace. The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, or sexual conduct which interferes with the victim's job performance or creates a hostile or offensive work environment.

Woman brings wrongful termination lawsuit in Los Angeles

Workers have important protections against wrongful termination so it is important to understand them. A wrongful termination lawsuit was recently heard in a Los Angeles courtroom. The CEO of a local rehabilitation center testified that he terminated the center's former human resources director because she did not perform up to expectations, and not because she had reported alleged workplace violations. The woman brought a wrongful termination claim alleging retaliation, as well as age and disability discrimination.
