Founder and CEO sues company after being fired

People who work in California and hear about others being fired from their jobs may sometimes think that this is a problem that employees in leadership positions within a company may not have to grapple with. In reality, anyone in any position may find themselves out of a job for reasons they do not always agree with. An example of this can be seen in a lawsuit that was recently filed in the Bay Area. 

What your personnel file can tell you about your firing

Being fired from your job can be an especially distressing experience when you have no idea why you were terminated. You might be sure that you have performed up to the standards of company conduct and performance. So if you feel left in the dark over your firing, California law allows you to ask your employer to provide your personnel file to look at, in addition to any records relating to your firing. By checking your personnel file, you may find the rationale behind your termination and even discover if the termination was unjust.

Sexual harassment with the Department of Justice

Despite intense company trainings and media accusations of workplace harassment, situations involving sexual harassment continue. In fact, a survey conducted by National Public Radio found that 81 percent of women have experienced some form of sexual harassment at work. Surprisingly, the same study discovered that 43 percent of men have also been harassed at work. Yet, these numbers are thought to be low as men are less likely to come forward and report sexual harassment. More women, however, are coming into the forefront as harassers.

How to heal after sexual harassment at work

Sexual harassment is a painful experience. It can cause much more than just distress or discomfort at the time of the incident. The effects of sexual harassment in the workplace often include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, headaches, muscle aches and chronic health problems. 

Discrimination in the wake of a workplace accident

People are injured on the job in numerous ways, from electrical accidents on construction sites to mishaps that take place in office spaces. These accidents can create various short-term and long-term challenges, and aside from physical and emotional pain, financial problems due to hospital costs and lost wages and disabilities, they can also impact a worker in other ways. For example, someone who is injured in a work-related accident may be subjected to discrimination following the accident. They may be discriminated against as a result of their disability, or they may even experience some other type of discrimination (such as racial discrimination or gender discrimination) that surfaces following their accident.
