More employment contracts include clawback clauses

Earning a college degree and completing the necessary training is all part of landing that dream job. For many new hires, whether fresh out of college or veterans in their field, the hiring process can be a whirlwind of interviews, assessments and paperwork. Among the documents to review and sign is the contract, and more employment contracts are now including provisions that penalize employees for poor performance or misconduct.

Employment discrimination rising over parental leave policies

For couples in California and elsewhere around the country, becoming a parent is a major life event. While celebrating a birth or adoption and adjusting to life with a newborn, working parents have to concern themselves with leave policies at their places of employment. While companies have always varied widely on the amount of leave provided, societal changes have now sparked debate on how policies are actually administered. In fact, accusations of employment discrimination are occurring more frequently as traditional stereotypes of caregiving are challenged.

Fire engineer files wrongful termination lawsuit

When an employee in California or anywhere around the country discovers unethical or illegal practices in the workplace, there is often a sense of obligation to make authorities aware of the situation. Reporting unethical or illegal activities should be accomplished without fear or reprisal. However, an engineer for the Five Cities Fire Authority recently filed a wrongful termination lawsuit when he was terminated after reporting several labor violations.

Employment discrimination suit filed against health system

A man in another state recently claimed that he was mistreated at work on the basis of his age. He has therefore filed a lawsuit against his former employer, a health system. Likewise, any employees in California who believe that they have experienced age-based employment discrimination can seek justice through the civil court system.

Woman files wrongful termination suit against health department

A woman who used to work at a health department in another state recently claimed that the department terminated her after she reported issues within the organization. She has thus decided to file a wrongful termination lawsuit against the department, seeking $50,000. Anyone in California who is unfairly fired from his or her job may likewise take legal action against his or her employer.
