Determine if your termination was unlawful

If you have been fired from your job, you are likely feeling many difficult emotions. You are probably upset about your sudden unemployment; you are probably angry at your employers for firing you; you are probably nervous about finding another job. With all of these tumultuous emotions, you may be wondering if there isn't another way. You may start to wonder if perhaps your termination was unlawful, and if you can get your job back as a result.

Accommodation for disabled employees

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) made great progress in the equal treatment of disabled individuals in the workplace. In California, this progress is amplified by the additional protections afforded by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). These two Acts come together to ensure that disabled individuals are allowed to contribute to society in the same ways that non-disabled individuals are. Thanks to the ADA, disabled workers are able to hold jobs that they otherwise would not be able to hold.

California harassment training must include anti-bullying

Employees have many rights in the workplace that protect them from being mistreated by their employers. These rights include protection from being denied employment or promotion, and even being treated unfairly in the workplace based on factors such as gender, race and other such traits. As of 2015, California employees will be able to take advantage of another protection: protection from workplace bullying.

Managers and supervisors, for example, often feel they can make sexual advances either verbally or physically and get away with it, because they believe that the victim will be too frightened for their job to speak out. You may even be one such victim.
