Principal faced wrongful termination for reporting wrongdoing

When employers are called out for unethical or inappropriate behavior, they sometimes seek revenge against those who exposed them. In the state of California, harassment and retaliation in the workplace is a direct violation of established employment laws. The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 protects workers from facing retaliatory acts for reporting violations or other unethical acts. A woman in another state filed a wrongful termination lawsuit after she was allegedly fired for reporting unethical activity.

Wrongful termination: Man allegedly fired for using benefits

For many full-time workers in California and across the country, employment is not only about wages, but also about the many benefits that full-time employees receive. Eligible full-time employees often receive benefits such as paid vacations, health insurance and worker's compensation. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for employers in today's fast-paced world of business to retaliate against employees for using benefits to which they are entitled. When this happens, victims can take legal action. A man in another state claims he was fired in retaliation for using worker's compensation benefits and he has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Workplace discrimination still occurs across the United States

It goes without saying that losing a job can have massive financial implications. However, when a worker loses his or her job due to workplace discrimination, the experience can also be emotionally and psychologically traumatic. Despite significant advancements in women's rights, gender discrimination is still one of the most common forms of discrimination in workplaces in California and across the country. Discrimination in any form is wrong and is never justified. A woman in another state filed a lawsuit over claims that she was fired from her job simply because she is a female.

Were you denied a non-discretionary bonus by your employer?

You count on your wages to help you cover the costs of maintaining your household. You probably already know that you have a right to take action if your employer does not pay your hourly wages. Fewer people realize that they also have rights when a company doesn't pay certain kinds of bonuses.

Retaliation cited in wrongful termination claim

It goes without saying that losing a job can have significant financial impacts. However, when a worker is fired in retaliation, the experience can be psychologically and emotionally devastating. Employees in California who are subjected to unfair treatment or witness unethical conduct in the workplace have a right to speak up without fear of retaliation. So, what can be done if an individual loses his or her job as a result of retaliation? This allegedly happened to a woman in another state and she filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.
