Your pregnancy shouldn't land you in an unemployment line

Are you one of many California mothers-to-be who feels as though she has waited a lifetime to conceive a child? No wonder when you learned of your expected bundle of joy, you wanted to rush right out and share your good news with all your friends, families and coworkers. Since you work in an office, you weren't worried in the least that your pregnancy might somehow impede your ability to do your job.

You have a right to the pay you work hard for

Most people find a job because they need to have an income to pay for the things that they need. Almost nobody works just because they think it is fun. With this in mind, you can see why it is important for employers to pay employees for the time they work.

Familiarize yourself with California's wage and hour laws

When you accept a job offer, you are counting on the employer to pay you and do things in accordance with the applicable laws. The employer is expecting you to perform the job duties for which you are hired.

Speaking up about illegal matters shouldn't cost you your job

You know that your employer is doing something illegal. Now, you have to decide what you are going to do about that knowledge. You might be at a loss for what you are going to do because you don't want to make your employer upset but you also don't want the illegal activity to continue.

Lactating mothers should know their rights for pumping at work

New mothers who are breastfeeding a baby shouldn't have to choose between feeding their baby and going back to work. Fortunately, workers in California have special laws that protect them from having to make this choice.
