It would only be considered unlawful if you can prove that the motivation for the employer's conduct is race (or national origin if the green card comments were related thereto). Proof will be the issue....Read more »

I live in California. I reported him and had video proof of him taking up skirt photos of me. instead of sending me to a separate room or home she sent me back to office where we were only a few feet apart. I hid under my desk because I was afraid to face him and wasn’t sure if HR was going to... Read more »
The answer to your question depends on what happened after you were sent back to work in the same room. If no further harassment occurred, there is likely no violation of the law. The employer does not have to transfer or terminate an employee accused of harassment if the employer can prevent...Read more »
Politicians are not Drs. Not only that my job instability crippled my ability to hold down a proper dr. So far the medi-cal provided ones have not shown any investment with concerns on infertility and potential blood clots. How is his push to reward those that are vaccinated not a form of PURE...

I am sorry but this does not appear to be a question but more of a rant.
I understand your concerns but vaccination has been held to be a lawful way for the government to attempt to control certain deadly medical conditions throughout the last decade. Exceptions exist for those with...Read more »

He asked me to seek other counsel but wanted me to be the one to dismiss him. I believed, at the time, my case would be more appealing to other attorneys if they left me rather then me leaving them, on a contingent case.
I have not been able to find an attorney since. Now, I think I may... Read more »
Disrespectful no. However, it is always a red flag for an attorney looking at a case when the client had a prior attorney who no longer wanted to work with the client because of a communication breakdown. No attorney wants to take on a case that will turn into a nightmare where the client and...Read more »
Would clear my balance for being an employee, just as I witnessed they did with other employees because this was one of the benefits working there. After a year of working there, I discovered my manager was stealing from the company so I informed the owners and they fired her. I stopped working... Read more »
You really have not disclosed sufficient information to allow for meaningful advice. Whether you were a minor at the time is of little relevance now. If the employer wants to take your deposition, the only thing you need to know is to tell the truth. To do that, you have to listen carefully to each...Read more »

That is a question you should discuss with your lawyer. You can ask him/her to give you a legal analysis in writing of all the reasons why this should be a good and reasonable offer, given the facts of your case. This is, of course, something you should have discussed with your attorney ahead of...Read more »
Im at my desk building a guide for the company procedures before my shift started. A fellow female full time employee was there in the area we shared at her desk which is at least 15 feet from mine.

It would help if you provided more information. It seems you have asked at least 4 similar questions along the same lines. But you don't offer any details about the nature of the work, the kind of company where the work is, or other context for how this issue arose. Most lawyers like to know...Read more »
That depends: on the nature of your work/job, the purpose of the requirement, what men in similar jobs are required to do, etc. What documentary evidence do you have for such a requirement? Take a good look at that, and perhaps go to your human resources department, if you have one. I'm having...Read more »
