When an individual has a disability, his or her employer is required to allow accommodations for that disability. Refusal to do so goes against the American with Disabilities Act. Firing an employee because he or she requested certain accommodations is also not okay. Any California resident who has been wrongfully terminated or refused disability accommodations may file an EEOC claim to seek compensation for his or her losses.
All hard-working California residents want to be compensated fairly for their time on the job. Unfortunately, some find that this does not always happen. If you find yourself in a payment dispute with your employer, legal counsel may be able to help you resolve the issue.
Many employers in California and across the country are looking for younger individuals to come in and take jobs. This does not mean that they have the right to push older employees out unless there is a good reason to let them go. Those who believe that age discrimination contributed to their firings may file both discrimination and wrongful termination claims against their former employers.
California laws and federal laws protect employees from unfair and discriminatory treatment in the workplace and in any hiring practices. Unfortunately, inappropriate treatment still happens, as demonstrated by a recent complaint from a California employee of Samsung. This worker claims he experienced employment discrimination on the basis of his religion when interviewing for a position.
