Ex-CEO files wrongful termination lawsuit against former employee

When California employees and others across the country have to take time off from work due to illness, most assume that their jobs will still be there when they return.

However, one CEO in another state lost his job with an airport authority after missing work because of sickness. He has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against his former employer.

When a company fails to do this, it is violating the nation's wage and hour laws. An organization in another state was recently required to pay back wages to nearly 70 employees.
