Man claims he was subject to a wrongful termination for being gay

All employees have the right to go to work feeling comfortable and not needing to worry about being a victim of harassment.

A former employee for a California pawn shop claims that he was subjected to harassment and discrimination from his former employer prior to his wrongful termination.

Ex-CNN employee files discrimination/wrongful termination claim

After 17 years of service, a former field producer for CNN lost his job for what he believes to be discrimination. The California-based producer -- who is described as a black and Latino American -- covered large-scale events such as the 2012 elections, 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. The plaintiff was the first black male to earn a producer position in Los Angeles, but he claims that he never received any other type of promotion after that. He believes that his job loss was the result of a wrongful termination.

In some instances, a company may neglect to pay its workers appropriately in an effort to keep payroll costs lowered and deny their rest periods so that more work gets completed.
