So it really came to shock because it seem like it was out of nowhere. I asked for written termination... View More
In California you are considered to be employed on an at will basis unless you have an agreement to the contrary about that status with your employer. The employer of an at will employee can terminate that employee at any time and for any reason or even for no reason at all....View More
The comment made to you may or may not be part of a claim of disability discrimination or harassment. However absent an adverse employment action it would likely, alone, not be enough to have a legal claim for discrimination.

The responses you have already received are accurate that the way you can address someone telling others objectively untrue falsehoods that adversely affect your reputation is a lawsuit for defamation. However, having a right to have a meritorious defamation claim does not mean bringing such a...View More

One of the conditions of the consent form is that I do not discuss my wages and contains a 1000 dollar fine if breached.

An employer can require you to take any courses it desires you to take and it can terminate you if you refuse to do as required. However, the issue is whether you must be compensated for the time in the course and whether the employer must pay for the course itself. Not all courses must be...View More

You are not legally entitled to your paycheck before the established pay day even if usually you get your check earlier. If the pay is not available to you on your established pay day, then you would have a claim for penalties under the Labor Code that you can enforce by making an administrative...View More

Unfortunately, your employer has no duty to accommodate your school schedule.
And as an at will employee your employer can even terminate you for any reason or even no reason at all. You can therefore lose hours or be terminated at any time, including a conflicting school schedule....View More
