can a co worker go threw my phone off of work while I am under the influence of achocol with out my permission and then take pictures of what is on my phone to use it against me at work to get me suspended.
Your employer can act on any information it receives from any source to discipline you. There would be no legal case against the employer. As to the co-worker, suing a co-worker is rarely worth the time, money and effort, even if you had a meritorious claim. If that intellectual property should...Read more »
You are not entitled to be paid for your commute to and from home and your regular place of business even if you are given a truck to drive that commute. However, if you are required to engage in business activities during that drive, such as shuttling co-workers to and from their homes, or doing...Read more »
Far more would need to be known about the nature of the documents and other facts that would provide context for this question. Generally, signing someone else's names or initials when permission to do so has not been given is, essentially, forgery.
Her unjust evaluation of my performance will cost me employment in the second largest school district in the nation. I am very clearly treated differently than other employees.

Your employer cannot compel, or force, you to use your vacation time if you are otherwise entitled to sick leave. Vacation time is yours, and you cannot be compelled to use it for anything other than vacation time. If you get sick, then use your sick time. That is what it is for.
I settled for under 100,000 but I couldve gotten more if the company was honest about their employees at the time. They had more than 5 employees yet the day we had mediation to try and settle they lied about the amount of employees they had to avoid more money being paid to me. They fired me... Read more »
It is highly unlikely that these new facts will allow you to set aside a settlement already entered into. Most settlement agreements have provisions that prohibit what you want to do, and foreclose any ability to set aside the settlement based on new facts, even if you had been lied to.

He used other supervisors that are friends with him to intimidate me. They keep telling me he "has it out for me", and I'm quoting. Yesterday while I was working on a solo project, and a friend of the boss who is threatening, came in and began telling me I wasn't wanted at a job site. Because my... Read more »
In short, leave. No one should have to work in such an environment. However, the law does not make it unlawful to bully others in the workplace. Unless you can prove you were being treated this way because you are a member of a protected class of people or because you engaged in some form of...Read more »
If you work for a non-government entity in California, then yes, your employer must provide you with a reasonable opportunity to take a ten-minute uninterrupted and duty free rest period for every 4 hours (or major portion thereof) that you work. The number of employees is not a consideration....Read more »

I am sorry but you have no wrongful termination claim based on these facts.
An employer does not have to state any or all of the reasons for its decision for terminating you when it does. Requiring you to undergo a post-accident drug test was lawful. Terminating you for a dirty test is...Read more »

The law on this kind of situation is changing in about a month. At the present time there is no penalty built into the Labor Code for employers who do not pay their employers on the regularly scheduled pay day, unless it can be proved to be an actual business practice. That changes January 1,...Read more »
I was recently terminated but my employer did not pay all monies owed and his way of firing me was blackmailing me by stating that if I didn't resign, he would follow a police report. I refused to quit and he still terminated me. My last direct deposit was short a few hours and I was never paid... Read more »
There is a lot in your post. The basic answer is yes, you have rights. You have rights to claim the money that should have been paid to you. If you can prove the employer willfully failed to pay all of your wages upon your termination you may also be entitled to Waiting Time Penalties equal to...Read more »
