In the recent past in California and throughout the country, most people were just happy to have a job during the so-called "Great Recession." Now, the economy is doing so well that some reports state that there are more jobs available than there are employees to fill them. But, the strength of the economy is no reason for employees to suffer abuses of employment laws from their employers.
It is a sad fact that in today's business landscape, there are still employers who attempt to take advantage of employees. Perhaps the employers don't think that employees know about the various employment laws that provide them with protection. Or, perhaps the employers don't see the legal violations when they occur. Regardless of the circumstances, whenever employers violate state or federal employment law, they can and should be held accountable.
One of the most egregious employment law violations is a wrongful termination. Many employees can be fired for most any reason if they are "at-will", but employees who are fired for illegal reasons - such as racial or religious discrimination - may have options to consider if they are thinking about taking legal recourse.
