Far more would need to be known about your medical condition, what your employer was informed about your restrictions placed on your ability to perform your regular job, and many other issues. However, there is enough in your post to suggest that it would be prudent for you to locate and consult...Read more »
All my co workers got together at a party and created racist memes about me and sent these through a mass group text to almost all the other employees in the district. This is a party that predominately had supervisors and a district manager attending. Nothing was done to stop messages being sent... Read more »
Racist memes sent about you are clearly inappropriate. Whether they rise to the level of unlawful racial harassment depends on the severity and volume of the inappropriate conduct. Harassment, to be unlawful, has to be severe or pervasive,...Read more »

If your sister can prove she is being pushed out of her job because of her age over 40 years old or some other protected classification of persons, she would have a meritorious legal claim. However the Easter comment discloses no apparent unlawful discrimination, just insensitivity.

I am sorry but your post is not very clear. I will try to provide some guidance.
An employee who is terminated (i.e., discriminated against) because of their membership in a protected class who worked in California has options about which law he or she wishes to use to enforce their...Read more »
Unfortunately it looks like your post was not complete. We therefore do not have your question. Generally know that being terminated while out on disability leave is not per se unlawful. However being terminated under such circumstances certainly raises several red flags of possible unlawful...Read more »

An employment law attorney familiar with the Fair Employment and Housing act, FMLA and litigating against public entities. Most experienced employment law attorneys will likely have competencies in those areas, but be sure to ask for that specifically. I would suggest you look either on this site...Read more »
I have been at my job for 11 months. Our company policy states we accrue vacation time every pay period but can't use it until we have been there at least 1yr so if they fire me before my 1 yr mark am I entitled to be payed for all my accrued vacation time I have earned?
It seems from what you've said that you don't "earn" the vacation time until after you have worked for one year. This means that the vacation pay doesn't "accrue" until after you have been employed for one full year. In other words, the vacation pay only becomes "vested" (i.e. you have the right to...Read more »
At my job we don't have "seasonal" but "part time recurring" instead. These employees are not considered regular, how long are until they become regular? Some of these employees work more days than the regular employees as well. Additionally, some have been with the company for years and are... Read more »
Those labels are completely at the discretion of the employer. There is no law that requires an employer to make people regular or full time or part time, etc. The employer creates the categories for various reasons and the employer has the discretion to change those labels as well, as long as...Read more »
If I were on the initial IP filing for the company, when I leave the company. The company use the exact information on the IP filing for patent and it been award without my name on it. Do I really have a case if I have the document that return to me from the IP office.
You are going to have to take the documents you have and locate an intellectual property attorney to determine if you have any rights in this situation. That attorney will likely want to know your participation in the invention of the patented device or process. The claim would not be related to...Read more »
Work related injury so I was let go And given a false reason but is the special employer at fault for discrimination and retaliation or is it the temp agency for not finding another place for me to work (wrongful termination). Am I able to sue them both?
The answer to your question will really depend on several things that are not included in your post. The law has several ways that an attorney can use to hold both the actual employer and the employer that controls the workplace conditions liable in many situations. The California law that...Read more »

If you bought the dog, then until you sold the dog to new owners, it can be argued that it was your responsibility to properly vaccinate the dog with the parvo virus and other relevant vaccines.

Hottest day of the year 107 outside, corrugated warehouse line work-it had to be 147- the warehouse cooled by a single box fan, Ross, my deceased partner said- Supervisor admitted to me at the hospital they realized the heat danger and called unscheduled break for snow cones outside- Ross got to...

clarification of what? You say the deceased was your partner, but that may not qualify you for benefits. Hopefully your partner left something in writing saying that you are an heir. Otherwise, you may be forced to litigate the issue. Be advised that if there are no dependents entitled to...Read more »
It is too late to proceed with a discrimination claim before the WCAB, However, you can still file a claim for WC benefits. The civil statute is longer, so you should be able to proceed with a claim in the civil courts.
My paychecks are short , missing or different pay rate. Also i was promise a bouns ... i now have no work beside i believe i asked about my bouns. Hr and their scheduling are no help, they just sent me in circles.
Unfortunately this is not a workers comp question. I tried to find a way to flag the questions, but there were no options. You need to post in employment law. There is no remedy in workers comp. for what you have described.
There is no legal right to have a list of such questions provided to you ahead of time, as they constitute the private writings of the opposing lawyer until they are asked of you; and the questions might not even be prepared or written down in advance by the opposing lawyer. It's best to have a...Read more »
