A jury awards a wrongfully terminated Allstate worker $18 million

A jury in San Diego decided on May 3 to have Allstate Insurance award $18.6 million in damages to one of its former employees for his wrongful termination. According to court records, the 55-year-old worker had apparently been let go back in 2015 after he was arrested following an altercation with his girlfriend at the time in Arizona.

Malicious termination finding leads to $7.97 million verdict

Malicious firing of employees is never something that should occur. Even though California is an at-will employment state, there are still limitations to terminations. For example, employers can't fire employees for making factual claims about the company or for filing workers' compensation claims.

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.

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.
