Can an employer terminate me while I'm on FMLA leave?

Your employer cannot terminate you for exercising your right to take a Family Medical Leave Act sabbatical. In other words, if you become pregnant or sick -- or if your spouse or family member becomes pregnant or sick or you adopt a baby into your home -- you can take some unpaid time off work without fear of losing your job.

Victim of workplace harassment? Document, document, document

You would think that you'd be able to go to work, do your job and come home without dealing with some sort of harassment during the work day. Unfortunately, workplace harassment is an all-too-common problem in California and elsewhere. In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission receives thousands complaints regarding workplace harassment every single year.

3 examples that may represent wrongful termination

When you lost your job, you may have felt completely caught off guard. You may have thought that you were doing well, avoiding behavioral issues and getting along with most, if not all, of your co-workers. Still, you ended up in a meeting with your boss where he or she dismissed you from your position.

Discrimination at work isn't ever acceptable

There isn't ever a good reason for an employer to discriminate against someone based on things like gender, marital status or other protected statuses. When an employee is subjected to this type of atrocious behavior, he or she might decide that he or she is going to take legal action. This might be difficult to prove, but we are here to help you figure out what direction to take your case.

Are you having a wage and hour problem at work?

Federal law requires employers to pay their hourly workers at least $7.25 per hour. Most states, including California have their own minimum wages set, with this state being at the high end of the scale at $11.00 per hour. Before you obtain gainful employment in this or any other state, you'll likely want to research current wage and hour laws.  

Know what to expect from your employer after a workplace accident

A workplace accident will have a negative impact on your life in many ways. From your medical bills to your ability to continue with your career after your recovery, there are many issues that could cause financial hardship. You have a right to financial support through a workers' compensation claim, but it is beneficial to have a full understanding of your rights.
