Union members claim overtime pay was miscalculated for years

Just because California employees are receiving overtime does not mean that it has been calculated correctly. These types of errors can cost workers a significant amount of money over time that could have been used for their families. A group of workers who are members of the Civil Service Employees Association in another state have filed a federal lawsuit against the county for which they worked, claiming that they were not paid correctly when they worked overtime.

Colleen Dominguez sues Fox Sports 1 for employment discrimination

It is unlawful for California employers to mistreat workers based on any protected status characteristics, but this does not always prevent discrimination from occurring. Colleen Dominguez, former reporter for Fox Sports 1 Los Angeles, claims that she suffered employment discrimination because of her age. The veteran reporter has an impressive resume, having worked formerly with ESPN and NBC. She was hired by Fox Sports 1 in 2014, and, at that time, the network implied she would do well and have a lot of sports coverage assignments. The plaintiff alleges that she covered the 2014 NBA playoffs, but, after that, things began to change.

Ex valet sues Zirx for overtime pay and contractor classification

Zirx -- an on-demand car services company headquartered in California -- is the latest company to be accused of misclassifying its workers as independent contractors instead of employees. Independent contractors are not eligible for overtime and other benefits that are afforded to employees. A former Zirx employee has filed a complaint against the company because she believes that similarly situated workers are actually employees based on the way in which they are treated.

Woman claims she faced retaliation for reporting discrimination

Is it possible that anything that is said can be held against someone, even to go as far as to have him or her fired? A woman who was employed by the medical board of examiners in a state outside of California believes it is true, even if the statements were never made. She claims that she faced retaliation after reporting to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and has filed her case in a federal court against the board, the executive director and other defendants.
