It is possible that the employer's conduct may have been unlawful here; however, more information needs to be known in order to fully understand your case.

It is a violation of both the National Labor Relations Act and the California Labor Code to retaliate against an employee for sharing wage information with another employee.

My job recently implemented an English-only rule. I work at a fast food place and while English is the language most spoken by our employees, we do have quite a few employees who speak only speak Spanish. Is it legal to require them to speak English at all times while on the clock? Management says... Read more »
An English only policy is forbidden under California law. Employers with at least five employees cannot limit or prohibit the use of any language in the workplace, except in rare circumstances when they can demonstrate a legitimate business necessity do so.

Curious to know if there is a legal strategy behind giving the green light on IIED. interested to know (theoretically) why legal would encourage that behavior considering it is unlawful. Would an employer take that risk if there... Read more »
Interesting question and sorry to hear you were poorly treated. Why would an employer take risks as you describe- in a hypothetical situation? One possible reason is that if you are claiming that you suffered a stress injury as a result of your work/workplace, that would be in the worker's...Read more »
They refused to give e ada help based on my adhd and the reasonable request for more clocks to be visible so I wouldn't get write ups for going into my 5th hour for lunch.

Told me I needed to talk to Gm “he was out of town “. I called office more than once they couldn’t put me back on the schedule until he said.

Sorry to hear you are having your employment "rug" pulled out from under you. I assume that you meant your "employer" was doing this to you. Unless you have a written agreement specifying the shift you would work, or you have either medical or religious reasons that would...Read more »
