OSHA files lawsuit for popcorn worker's retaliation firing

No California employee should ever have to choose between his or her health and livelihood. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was created to enforce workplace health and safety standards, to ensure employees are protected on the job. When employees are worried about their personal well-being, it is illegal for a company to dismiss that worker in retaliation for raising health or safety concerns and communicating with OSHA.

Former Shipley employees attempt overtime, sexual harassment suit

Though no franchises from the popular doughnuts chain are currently located in California, other bakeries within the state would do well to avoid following in the footsteps of Shipley Do-Nuts when it comes to the alleged treatment of their employees. Four former employees accuse the bakery of withholding overtime pay, in addition to complaints of sexual harassment against one former worker. The four former employees are attempting to initiate a class-action lawsuit against the company.
