Family and Medical Leave Act and parents of special needs kids

California parents know that there are certain laws that protect their right to take time off when they adopt, welcome a baby or take in foster children to add to their family. The Family and Medical Leave Act allows these parents to take a certain amount of time off without fearing they will lose their jobs or face some kind of retaliation. A new ruling from the U.S. Department of Labor is now saying that parents can also take FMLA to address meetings related to the special needs of their children.

Problems after filing a workers' comp claim? You can speak out

As a California employee, you understand that you have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits in the event that you suffer an injury at work or become ill as a result of your job. These benefits allow you to get the support and care you need during your recovery. This can be especially important if you had to take time off work after the accident.

Your age should not count against you at work

For many older California workers, age is just a number. You may be older than other applicants or the people who work at your job, but that does not in any way mean that you cannot still do good work or add value to the company. Despite this fact, there are employees who have to deal with age discrimination at work.

Amazon workers allege unpaid overtime from Prime Day

Amazon is an enormous online retailer that sells everything from ebooks to household goods to clothes. The company recently ran its Prime Day sales, which featured discounted prices on various products and is popular among consumers in California and across the rest of the United States. In terms of sales, Prime Day, this year a two-day event, is one of the busiest and biggest periods of time for Amazon. However, Amazon may have stiffed the workers who made the giant sale possible for unpaid overtime.
