What are whistleblowers to do, especially if they get fired?

Former President Abraham Lincoln signed the False Claims Act into law in 1863. He is said to have wanted to encourage people to report fraud against the U.S. government. Individuals who submit information to authorities or company officials regarding corporate wrongdoing are colloquially known as "whistleblowers," and while Lincoln died well over a century ago, the protection he set forth for those in California and other states who report unethical or illegal activity in the workplace still exists.

Student gets educated about sexual harassment at work

Bay Area college students look forward to getting their careers started. After years of hard work, it is quite the accomplishment to enter the workplace, ready to earn one's way up in a company. Though many students begin a career as the low man on the totem pole, with hard work and dedication, many establish careers that can last for decades. Unfortunately, some students become victims, and one student is speaking out about the prevalence of sexual harassment in the workplace. 

Death of a child leads to wrongful termination

Bay Area employees may have found themselves in a situation in which the actions of a co-worker raised concerns. This can be a tricky situation.

Hotel faces consequences for wage and hour violations

Bay Area residents may consider themselves fortunate to have found employment. In such uncertain economic times, finding a job can be a task in and of itself.

Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect employees, meant to prevent injustices such as wage and hour violations.

New year, new sexual harassment laws

Bay Area employees are back on the job after ringing in the new year. While most people find a way to celebrate new beginnings with family or friends, the new year is not just a reason to party. Now that the calendar has moved on to 2019, employees should be made aware that any new laws that passed are now in effect, and several states have passed legislation to combat sexual harassment in the workplace. 

Garment industry wrought with wage and hour violations

For many Bay Area employees, the prospect of keeping a full-time job can be stressful. People who are fortunate enough to have found steady employment in such uncertain economic times may not be aware that they are entitled to certain rights. An employee that suspects he or she is not being paid properly may worry that, if he or she complains, the employer will make trouble at work or fire him or her. Wage and hour violations continue to plague the American workforce, and the garment industry is no exception.
