'Union Persuader' rule overruled by federal judge

The Union Persuader rule required employers to disclose to employees any work they do regarding union organization efforts. The practical effect was to require law firms to disclose their efforts on behalf of their clients, the companies opposing union organization. A federal judge in Texas issued a permanent injunction which essentially nullifies the rule.

The effect of marijuana legalization on employment law

On November 8, 2016, California voters approved Proposition 64 which legalized recreational marijuana consumption in the state.

This post will go over your rights under Proposition 64 and how it affects your job.

Can you be fired for taking sick days?

The United States is an at-will employment country. At-will employment means that you can quit for any reason and your employer can fire you for any reason. The reason does not need to be fair nor reasonable. Your employer can fire you for wearing pink on Wednesdays, and you can quit because your boss wore hoop earrings, it does not matter.

Does an employer need a good reason to fire you?

Many people assume that their boss cannot fire them unless there is "good cause." Sadly, most people are wrong. In 49 states, employment is "at-will" which means either you or your employer can end the employer-employee relationship. This post will go over what this means for you.
