Lawsuit alleging workplace discrimination settled for $40,000

Treating a person unfairly just because of differing gender, race or age is not only wrong -- it is a denial of basic human rights. Discrimination can be traumatic and have permanent psychological effects for victims. In the state of California, discrimination in the workplace is illegal. Unfortunately, workplace discrimination continues to happen at an alarming rate across the country these days.

Wage and hour claims: Employees say they were treated unfairly

These days, it is not uncommon for employees in the United States to feel that they are overworked and underpaid. A fundamental part of employment is that all employees are paid appropriately for the work they provide. Fortunately, wage and hour laws were established to ensure that employees in the state of California and across the country are properly paid. In an effort to cut expenses, it is not uncommon for employers to incorrectly pay their employees, or neglect to pay workers altogether. This is a common scenario in many wage and hour claims.

Wrongful termination: Man embarrassed, defamed and fired

One of the worst and most hurtful experiences an employee can face is harassment from a boss or superior. Employees in California have rights and should never be forced to endure harassment in the workplace. Unfortunately, it seems to be happening more and more these days. Losing employment for any reason is difficult, but when employment is lost as a result of harassment, the experience can be humiliating and traumatic. A man in Los Angeles filed a wrongful termination lawsuit after he was allegedly harassed and fired.

Millions more employees may become eligible for OT pay

California workers enjoy some of the best labor laws in the country. Even so, there is one area where many workers felt the laws fell short: overtime pay. The Obama administration did make attempts to change this, making millions more people eligible for overtime pay on a federal level. However, several states pursued legal action and a federal judge blocked the proposal.

How to deal with and prove workplace retaliation

When workers face retaliation in California, reactions vary. Some people may struggle to keep their jobs for as long as possible. Another set of workers may move on and never look back, preferring to forget the incidents that led to the complaint and subsequent retaliation. Others may wish to seek legal recourse but first need to know where to begin.
