San Francisco wants to end a much-touted perk that tech company employees have long been accustomed to enjoying: a free lunch.
Wrongful termination is still a problem at places of employment throughout California and the rest of the country. Even though there are laws banning different reasons why employers can fire their employees, companies still thin their payroll by using these reasons. Let's take a look at the reasons for wrongful termination in today's post.
You plan to use your pension to retire. You've been planning on it for decades; it is one of the main reasons that you took this job in the first place. It's a very good pension that should allow you to maintain an enviable lifestyle even after you quit working, no matter what happens with the rest of your savings and investments.
If people have been part of California's workforce for three or four decades, they can tell you that things are looking up for workers of all types. New labor laws protect employees' needs for medical care and proper rest times, and many members of protected classes now have recourse against discrimination.
California's state government tries to go above and beyond in supporting employee rights in all industries to keep the state attractive to companies and workers alike. While U.S. laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act laid the foundation for modern labor protections, the Golden State often goes above national standards.
California is the nation's factory, grocer and seat of innovation. The largest part of the state's ability to attract and retain some of the world's best workers is the government's recognition of basic and advanced workers' rights.
It's a new year, and employees and managers are returning to work in every industry across the country. Workers and supervisors in California, as well as their human resource directors, are returning to a different world since several new laws are now on the books as of Jan. 1, 2018.
Any kind of violence is reprehensible, and there are few kinds more insidious and difficult to recover from than domestic violence. When a family or romantic relationship turns into threats and harm, life itself can feel like a prison.
People with different abilities are protected by universal rights to fair employment and housing. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against potential workers due to appearances or physical health, and employees who require assistance to work may expect management's help in engaging meaningfully with a job.
There are few events in life that require more rest and rebuilding than an instance of abuse or violence. Victims of dangerous behavior or discrimination, at home or in employment, have a right to an accepting workplace where laws are observed for the safety of its workers.
