Californians may choose the Marriott when they are in need of a comfortable stay during their travels.

Funeral home attendant seeks payment for unpaid overtime

One of the main responsibilities of California businesses is to ensure that their employees are compensated properly. Even though it can become expensive, workers who are required to work overtime should receive proper payment.

Recently an out-of-state man faced a similar issue and filed a lawsuit against his employer in a federal court.

Having a good work ethic and great performance reviews will usually increase the chances for California individuals to be promoted. To have that type of praise, the employees must work hard and sometimes make long-term sacrifices to get the promotions that they desire. Those dreams can be crushed when the employees who have worked so hard to get ahead miss out on an opportunity they feel they deserve because of unlawful practices such as employment discrimination. A woman from another state claims that she has felt the pain of discrimination and has taken her case against her employer to a federal court.

She has filed a wrongful termination claim against the city, its assistant manager and the director of human resources in a federal court.
