Severance packages are voluntary agreements

Some people who start working for a company opt to do so only when they have a severance agreement in place. This provides them with specific benefits in the event of a termination or other negative employment action. It is imperative to understand what these can do and what you need to do to protect yourself using one.

How can you know if you are receiving fair wages for overtime?

When a California worker has concerns about his or her rights regarding fair wages, he or she has the right to seek a beneficial outcome, as well as legal support to address the concern. If you suspect your employer is not paying you fairly, you would be wise to take quick action to protect your interests and seek the pay to which you are entitled. This is often a common concern for workers paid by the hour. 

Sexual harassment has emotional consequences

We recently discussed how victims of sexual harassment might have trouble coming forward regarding the accusations. There are several reasons for this; however, these victims need to come forward if they want the harassment to stop. We understand how hard this is to speak out but we can stand by your side.

Victims of sexual harassment might not want to file a report

Being sexually harassed at work is never a pleasant experience. These situations often come with a lot of uncertainty. People don't always realize that the mental and emotional turmoil can often be greater than the physical impacts. This is one of the reasons why some people never speak up.

Unpaid medical leave protections for California workers

The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) provides some protections for workers that are very similar to the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). There are a few differences that distinguish the two. Understanding what rights you have under both might help you determine which one you need to use to seek leave.
