Taking action when you aren't paid overtime

You don't stay late at work or come in on your days off so that you can earn the same amount as you earn for the first 40 hours of the workweek. Unfortunately, some employers try to make you work those additional hours without being willing to take care of you. If you have worked overtime, you deserve to be paid for that overtime.

Weight discrimination is a tough bias to shed

If you have trouble finding a power suit in your size, it may be for one reason: those who make clothes for business women don't expect plus-size women to achieve positions of power. Why is that? After all, you have your degree, perhaps several. You are good at your job, and you have plenty of successful experience in your field.

Employers shouldn't ever retaliate against employees

Employers can't take negative action on you because you file factual complaints about the company or employees of the company. Just because this is the law doesn't mean that some employers won't retaliate anyway. There are some instances in which employers do take negative actions and just assume that employees aren't going to speak up about the retaliatory actions.

Not all work injuries come from major accidents

When you think of work injuries, what comes to mind? Many think of major accidents that often cause devastating injuries. However, not all work injuries are the result of big events. In fact, there are those that happen due to completing the same tasks repeatedly.

No small matter: Recognizing signs of workplace harassment

You've been working at the same California location for a long time. Some days, you bound out of bed and can't wait to get to the office to put your best foot forward toward a productive, successful workday. Other days, you wish you never had to show up for work again, at least in that particular place.

Don't take sexual harassment with a grain of salt

Sexual harassment at any point in your life is a horrible thing to have to experience. Unfortunately, many people are subjected to these types of events while they are at work. In these cases, the victims might choose to hold the employer accountable for the harassment. We can help you learn about the options that you have when your employer isn't taking your complaints of sexual harassment seriously.

Caregivers get little respect in the workplace

At the end of the day, when you think about all the things that are most important to you, the ones that rise to the top are likely your family and your friends. Those closest to you make your life worthwhile. You may wish you could devote all your time to caring for them, but, of course, you have to work each day.

What scenarios could qualify you for FMLA leave?

Though you, like most other California residents, know that going to work is often a necessary part of life, certain situations may result in you needing time away from the office or wherever you may carry out your job-related duties. In some cases, those events may present a need for recurring time off or for an extended leave. However, you may wonder how those missed days could affect your employment status.
