Do I have to report workplace harassment before suing?

As any Los Angeles, California, resident can probably state, being a victim of sexual harassment is both a frightening and embarrassing experience. As such, it may be difficult for a victim to come out and report the problem to his or her employer, particularly if the report is going to make a manager or well-respected employee look bad or, worse, lose his or her job.

Former worker at social medial giant alleges age discrimination

A 52-year-old man has sued Facebook, his former employer, in connection with his involuntary termination from the company in 2015. In his lawsuit, which was filed in a Los Angeles court, he alleges age discrimination as well as wrongful termination.

Wage and hour disputes: break and meal period laws

Contrary to a popular perception, under federal law, employers do not have to provide breaks to hourly employees. Instead, employers need only pay for all short "coffee" breaks, those that typically last about 10 or 15 minutes. If they are offered, "lunch" breaks or breaks for other meals need not be paid.

Why do employers retaliate?

Discrimination or harassment in the workplace is something an individual should never have to face. Everyone is entitled to a safe work environment, and there is no place for sexist, racist, homophobic or transphobic behavior or any kind of religious discrimination.

What qualifies a person as a whistleblower in California?

Like other states, California offers protection to employees, even at-will employees who do not belong to a union, when an employee feels it is necessary to report illegal conduct on the part of their employer. However, it is important for employees to understand exactly who qualifies as a whistleblower who is protected from getting fired.

Understanding what constitutes wrongful termination

Obtaining and maintaining employment is a goal for residents in California and elsewhere. Because of that, when an individual loses their job, this can be a major hardship. While businesses downsize and some employees are reprimanded and lose their job for their conduct in the workplace, not all employees lose their jobs lawfully.

Famous LA cinema's leadership face sex harassment claims

A Los Angeles area cinema that is well known in the city for, among other things, showing silent movies, is now being accused of itself keeping silent despite having a pervasive culture of upper management taking advantage of younger, female employees and volunteers.

Helping you initiate an age discrimination action

Obtaining employment does not always seem like a luxurious idea, but for some individuals in California and elsewhere, obtaining and maintaining employment can be a difficult pursuit. In fact, even those who have managed to maintain the same position for several decades may find it challenging to continue their employment. Unfortunately, as employees age, they may seem less resourceful and up-to-date on current technology. Nonetheless, this is not cause or reason to terminate to alter one's employment. Unfortunately, aging employees are faced with discrimination because of their age, and employers illegally push employees out of their position so they can hire new and younger faces.
