California company settles dancer's wage disputes

When employees pool together, they can defeat unfair practices by company owners. Recently, a multi-million dollar class-action lawsuit was settled against a strip club franchise based out of California. Dancers alleged unfair treatment and wage disputes in this case, according to a recent news story. 

California woman sues for wrongful termination from county jail

An employer is not allowed to fire an employee as an act of retaliation, especially when the retaliation is due to an issue that is not work-related, such as a loan. If an employee is asked to leave or is eliminated from the schedule due to this type of retaliation, it likely constitutes wrongful termination. A recent news story out of California tells the story of one woman who is suing her former employer for wrongful termination. 

Sexual harassment investigation changes major California company

While the focus of each company is different, one thing is true across all companies, the work environment is to be free from harassment and discrimination. Sexual harassment in the California workplace is not acceptable and does not provide the right environment for employees to thrive. It's also illegal. A recent new story shares the consequences of sexual harassment in the workplace at Uber, a major transportation company, resulted in firings and restructuring of leadership within the company. 

Standardized tests can be a tool of employment discrimination

In the United States, workers are protected from discrimination on the job based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Some California job applicants may be familiar with testing as part of the employment process. Unfortunately, sometimes those tests can be used as a tool of employment discrimination, ruling out otherwise qualified employees with unfair tests that are not relevant to the skills required for the job they are applying for.
