Workers' compensation claims can't led to termination

California is an at-will employment state, which means that employers can pretty much fire you for any reason or no reason at all. There are some exceptions to this, as employers can't terminate you for a protected reason, even in an at-will state.

What damages may you seek in response to harassment and violence?

Many people take pride in the fact that California is one of the most diverse states in the union. You would think that fact would preclude harassment and hate violence in the workplace, but sadly, many workers in the state continue to experience it.

Sexual harassment at work demands immediate attention

Being sexually harassed at work can make you not even want to return to your job. This is a difficult position to be in, because you know that you need to go to work to earn an income. Without an income, you can't support yourself.

Sexual harassment in the military mustn't continue

Nobody should ever have to deal with sexual harassment while they are at work. It doesn't matter what job they do, the workplace should be free of this atrocious behavior. This is true even in traditionally male-dominated professions. Unfortunately, some high profile individuals don't realize that they are encouraging sexual harassment.

Family leave matters must be handled properly

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is meant to protect workers who need to take time off for their own medical issues or for specific family matters. One of these is that a person who has an immediate family member who has a serious illness can take unpaid leave for up to 12 weeks to assist the person. While there are some requirements for notice to the employer, this isn't always possible.
