Researching, applying and receiving family leave benefits

Workers have the right to make the most of life's great moments, as well as the responsibility to care for their families in times of trouble. In California, workers are eligible to apply for family leave for up to six weeks out of every 12-month period.

Help! My employer terminated me while I was on family leave

Workers who are taking a leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) expect that they will have their job waiting for them when they return to work. This isn't always the way that it happens. Some employers will terminate a worker who is on this type of leave. If you are terminated while on FMLA leave, you should find out if you can file a claim against the employer.

Wrongful termination cases can involve complex concepts

Losing a job is something that can have negative impacts on the person who is terminated. When the termination is a wrongful termination, the person might opt to pursue legal action against the employer. This is something that can be difficult to prove; however, we know that it isn't impossible when the case involves a termination that falls under the legal umbrella of wrongful termination.

What does on-the-job sexual harassment usually look like?
