Google facing harassment and retaliation claims

Google has been in the news a lot as of late. In 2018, employees walked out on the company over forced arbitration -- something it no longer requires. Now, the tech company is facing serious claims of harassment and retaliation, primarily from female staff members. Many of them recently shared their stories, and these stories may hit close to home with others in California who have, sadly, experienced the same thing at their places of work.

Settlement reached in disability discrimination lawsuit

According to federal laws, employees in California and elsewhere have every right to take time off work for specific family and medical reasons. The Family and Medical Leave Act allows a person so many weeks of unpaid leave in a 12-month period. How much time one is allowed to take depends on the circumstances behind the leave request. In another state, several employees filed a complaint against their former employer, stating they were the victims of disability discrimination after being fired at the end of their FMLA time off. This case was recently settled.

The reasons a firing may be a wrongful termination

No one likes to get fired. For most people, it comes as a complete shock, while others may see signs that it is on the horizon. At the end of the day, it does not matter when a person is fired; it matters how they were fired and for what reason. Some California residents who have been let go from their jobs may find that they have been dismissed illegally. Those who believe this applies to them may file wrongful termination claims in an effort to seek compensation for their losses.
