If you have a disability, there may be some things that you find harder to do than other people. However, this does not mean you are any less willing to do them or capable of doing them well. This includes finding employment. Just because you have a disability, this does not mean you are not entitled to work. In fact, in many cases, employers in California are obliged to cater to your disability.
Discrimination should not be tolerated anywhere, and the workplace is no exception. You deserve to be treated fairly, both by your colleagues and by your employers. However, it is an unfortunate fact that many workers in California are subjected to hostile work environments and unfair treatment as a result of traits that have nothing to do with their job. We saw in a recent case how 1,300 female employees were allegedly discriminated against by one company.
For any hard-working individual, getting a fair wage is often an important factor of their employment. Why work long hours and give your all to a job if you are not treated fairly as a result? Although many states have laws surrounding minimum wage rates, this is not the case everywhere. Even where these laws apply, many workers do not receive the money they are due for their work.
Being dismissed from your job is a deeply unpleasant thing to go through. But what if your dismissal was unfair, or even illegal? Sadly, many workers in California lose their jobs as the result of discrimination or because they refused to accept illegal actions on the part of their employer. In a previous article we discussed a case where a man appeared to have lost his job for being too old.
