California company to pay $50K for not accommodating worker's needs

When Los Angeles workers suffer a sudden illness or injury that requires them to take an extended period of time off of work to recover, workers may expect that their employers will be sensitive to their needs and understanding of any requests for time off.

School workers sue Archdiocese of Los Angeles for wrongful termination

Two former employees and one current employee of a school in Whittier recently filed a lawsuit against the school, its principal and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The plaintiffs claim that they were retaliated against in the workplace for trying to protect the school's students and that they were also forced to work in an environment that made them feel unsafe.

California woman fired for getting pregnant outside of marriage

Last week on our Los Angeles / Long Beach employment law blog we had mentioned that the California Fair Employment and Housing Act bans employers from discriminating against and harassing workers on the basis of their marital status and pregnancy. This means that employers cannot discriminate against or harass employees and job applicants who are pregnant but not married.

Undocumented workers treated unfairly in California workplaces

Workers in California and throughout the U.S. have rights and an expectation of fair treatment in the workplace. However, employee rights aren't always exercised by employers in Los Angeles and Long Beach who hire immigrant workers.

Other factors led to pregnant California woman's firing, court says

The rights of Los Angeles workers are protected under many state and federal laws. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act alone is meant to protect workers from being harassed and discriminated against in the workplace on the basis of race, religion, national origin, disability, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, medical condition and pregnancy.

California police officer files harassment case against supervisor

A female police officer in California has recently chosen to file a lawsuit against the city and police department of Pleasant Hill for which she works, alleging she is a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Oprah's network accused of discriminating against pregnant worker

Women in Los Angeles and Long Beach should not be forced to sacrifice their jobs or careers because they are pregnant or raising young children. If women want to continue working while also raising a family, that choice should be up to them, not their employer. Unfortunately, many employers still engage in discriminatory practices against women who are pregnant, and even Oprah Winfrey's OWN network is currently being accused of retaliation, sex discrimination and pregnancy discrimination.

Gay rights groups seek changes in workplace discrimination laws

California is one state that protects gay workers from discrimination in the workplace. However, many states do not offer this protection, and gay rights groups and advocates are working to change that.
