Can an employee handbook help my wrongful discharge case?

Like several other states, the courts in California are willing to enforce the terms of an employee handbook, as long as the employer distributes the handbook to its employees and as long as the obligations and promises it contains are sufficiently specific to enforce. California courts do so under the theory that an employer would not issue a handbook if it did not expect to follow the policies in it, and employees would, on the other hand, consult the handbook in order to know what the employer expected.

Warning signs of age discrimination

A previous post on this blog mentioned briefly that age discrimination claims can be hard to prove. After all, an employer rarely come out an say up front that a Los Angeles resident is getting fired or laid off because of his or her age, especially since most employers know that doing so is illegal and can lead to having to pay damages, including back pay and attorney's fees.

Ousted after years of service; we may have options

A Los Angeles resident can put in years or even decades of service to a company only to one morning get called in the management's office and be told that their services are simply no longer needed. Some get a severance agreement and package, but others may not be so lucky. These unexpected and abrupt changes in life clearly carry an enormous amount of stress. But it's important to try to keep a level head and approach the situation with a clear mind; there may be legal recourse.
