Employment dispute brewing regarding Mayor Bob Filner

Fortunately, most Californians do not have to put up with sexual harassment on the job. Others, on the other hand, must be subjected to inappropriate treatment and behavior every single day. California residents who find themselves being treated unfairly by superiors can file an employment dispute to seek justice. Even employees in very low positions, and employees who work for powerful politicians and well-connected individuals, are protected by the law from sexual harassment.

California woman alleges wrongful termination

A woman who says her employer fired her for reporting sexual harassment is taking her former boss to court, according to local sources. The Stockton, California woman alleges the dentist she worked for created a sexually dangerous atmosphere in the workplace and then fired her for calling him on his behavior. She is suing for wrongful termination.

Target faces California employment discrimination suit

Many companies across the United States offer cultural sensitivity training to their management teams in an effort to prevent a hostile work environment and promote workplace diversity. Whether companies offer training sessions, videos or documents, they should ensure that the training materials themselves are not potentially offensive. Unfortunately for one Target distribution warehouse in California, a training document about Hispanic employees led to the filing of an employment discrimination suit by three former workers, who are Hispanic.

California farmworkers rely on ALRB in an employment dispute

When an employee is being sexually harassed and her or his employer is doing nothing about it, there are options available outside of the company to resolve the problem. There are several state and federal offices, such as the EEOC, that can handle an employment dispute. For farmworkers in California, there is one more option -- the Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB).

In California the suit doesn't fit in wrongful termination claim

The board of directors of a men's clothier franchise have decided that the founder of the company is no longer suited to serve as the spokesman. The founder and former executive director of the company claims that the firing is a wrongful termination. The executive directors of The Men's Warehouse, which is well known for both its merchandise and tag line, says that the fired founder was no longer fit to serve as the face of the business.
