Employment Attorney Patrice L. Goldman Protects Your Workplace Rights
California law is much more protective of employee rights than other states.
Federal and state law prohibits treating an individual differently because they are a member of a certain group.
Unless there is a contract that specifies otherwise, It is presumed that employees are “at-will” and may be terminated for any reason or no reason, at any time.
A breach of contract can occur where an employer fails to comply with the terms of a written contract between it and an employee.
Employers are not required to pay severance to departing employees; however, an employer may offer severance in order to avoid any legal action.
An employee who engages in “protected activity” such as opposing discrimination, standing up for the rights of others, standing up for your own rights, raising claims of wrongdoing, or even just questioning whether conduct is legal, should be protected from retaliation.
Pregnant employees are entitled to up to four months of pregnancy leave where the employee is disabled because of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition.
WAGES, HOURS, WORKING CONDITIONS
California strives to protect the wages that are due and must be paid to employees.
