Understanding sexual harassment law

Sexual harassment in California is a touchy subject that, unfortunately, often remains unaddressed. In the workplace, many men and women experience some sort of inappropriate gestures or remarks that leave them feeling violated and even emotionally traumatized. If left unresolved, such incidents can result in hostile working environments, unfair demotions, and prolonged emotional stress.

Gender pay gap and salary transparency

Any California worker who has been on the job hunt knows that it is not always easy to negotiate starting pay. For women, who are often socialized to be less demanding, their gender can work against them in these negotiations, which can impact long-term earning potential. In a current lawsuit against Google alleging that the company pays women less than men, these issues are in play.

Employee wins wrongful termination action over misconduct claims

As a worker in California, you may look at losing your job as a devastating event that you have no recourse to prevent if the company claims you violated your employment contract. However, if the company does not follow its own procedures, you could have legal recourse. We at The Kaufman Law Firm often counsel clients on their rights in the workplace.

Maternity leave isn’t just for new mothers

Did you know that, as new father, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) may apply to you as well? If your employer is subject to the provisions of the FMLA, you can take a leave of absence to care for a new or injured child. You can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave with the knowledge that your job will be waiting when you return.
