Moving on after a wrongful termination

If your employer recently fired you in a way that violated employment law, you could be facing all sorts of different problems. However, it is paramount for you to take action right away if your rights were trampled on. Our law firm recognizes the multitude of challenges that workers in Santa Barbara and other parts of California may have to endure following a wrongful termination and we believe that people in this position deserve justice.

We need a better perspective on ageism

When you were young, you probably saw older people as different from you. Depending on your perspective, you may have honored them as deep compendiums of valuable knowledge. Or, maybe you judged them as examples of a dying, outmoded system.

Taking action against sexual harassment

Sexual harassment takes many forms, some of which we have covered on this blog. Whether you are subjected to the presentation of lewd and offensive sexual material while trying to work or are forced to endure nasty sexual comments, unwanted physical contact, or any other illegal form of sexual harassment, you should not hesitate to speak out. Sadly, some workers who are victims of sexual harassment stay quiet because they worry about the possible ramifications of standing up for themselves. Our law firm recognizes how hard it can be for victims to come forward, but offenders must be held answerable.

Age discrimination in the workplace

Workers in California who are over the age of 40 need to be aware of age discrimination laws. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, these federal laws are in place to protect those who are discriminated in a variety of employment areas. These include hiring, termination, promotions, pay, benefits, job assignments and layoffs.

Voluntarily leaving a job could still count as termination

For many people in California, going to work is not something they spend time worrying about. However, if your employment situation makes you miserable, and you are not bound by a contract, you may be weighing whether quitting your job is necessary for your peace of mind. At Anticouni & Associates, we understand that employers may take extreme steps to avoid the appearance of breaking the law while still engaging in unethical and illegal practices.
