If you feel you have been discriminated against in your workplace or in employment and hiring practices, you may wish to pursue a lawsuit. But in California, that requires obtaining a "right to sue" letter. Just what is a "right to sue," and why is it required? Should you be able to simply pursue a lawsuit without obtaining this letter?

What is a hostile work environment?

When your work environment becomes unbearable and you face discrimination or harassment, you have every right to file a complaint. What you are dealing with is, under federal and California state law, considered a hostile work environment - but what exactly does this mean? How does your work environment classify as hostile?

Can an employer threaten to report me to immigration?

Many workers in the United States, including in California, can find themselves in delicate situations regarding immigration status and employment. Renewing a work visa one day late can place you in a precarious position, while undocumented workers may have little to no recourse in many situations without being discovered. An unscrupulous employer may take advantage of this to exploit workers in delicate situations regarding immigration status - and may threaten to report your immigration status if you intend to report unsafe, discriminatory, or otherwise unethical work conditions. Can your employer legally do this, or do you have protections even in your situation?
