Employment Law Archives

Employees have specific rights in the workplace

Employees often think that they have to deal with whatever happens at work. This isn't at all the case. All employees have specific rights that they are entitled to when they are working. It is up to the employers to make sure that the employee's rights aren't being violated.

When it comes to work, what does your age have to do with it?

Do you ever feel like your employer avoids giving you assignments, refuses to promote you or offers you unfair benefits -- among other things -- because of how old you are? If so, you may be entitled to file an age discrimination claim against the responsible parties. In California and elsewhere, your age is not a reason for an employer to discriminate against you.

Big differences between employees and independent contractors

Employment law is a wide open area of the law that encompasses a variety of situations. One of the commonly misunderstood areas of employment law has to do with a person's employment classification. This includes the differences between an employee and an independent contractor.

Employers might fight your unemployment claim

Unemployment benefits are a way for workers who are let go from a job or quit because of a hostile workplace to have some income until they are able to return to work. There are cases in which unemployment claims are made by employees and they get those benefits without any other work on the employee's part. In other cases, the employer contests the issuance of unemployment benefits.

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.

Bullies aren't only found on school playgrounds

Many California residents recall moments in their childhoods when they faced antagonizing behavior from bullies. Sadly, this problem has not vanished on playgrounds inthe United States. Bullying doesn't necessarily disappear once a child grows up and enters the workforce either. In fact, the gravity of many such situations intensifies exponentially when those doing the bullying are adults.

Permanent residents not required to show green cards

Prospective employees in California and around the country who are considered lawful permanent residents of the United States are not required to show their green cards as part of the hiring process. The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices of the U.S. Department of Justice came to a settlement with a landscaping company that required its immigrant employees to provide their green cards as part of the process of employment verification.
