This question is under the "California" tab, so I'll assume this relates to California law. It sounds like what happened to you is not only inappropriate but potentially illegal. Speak with a local attorney today. [I litigate cases. Anything posted here must not be construed as legal...Read more »
My employer walked into my office, handed me a check for the two days I had worked, another check for accrued vacation pay, and another check.

My husbands pay was docked 4 dollars for being late a couple of times. His boss under a contract said in a month he would get it back. Instead he never gave it back and gave the extra 4 dollars to give another employee a 4 dollar raise. There is more to this as well. My husband suffered some... Read more »
Falsified from 6.5 to 4.0 (1-10 scale) by my manager , in writing stated it was modified downward to fit a list of pre-determined employees targeted for layoff.

Then there is no protection. Discrimination on the basis of transgender status is unlawful because the California Fair Employment and Housing Act makes it so. That law does not apply to businesses of less than five employees.

I can. A publicly filed lawsuit is easily findable by anyone who wants to do a basic database research using your name. It does not matter if the matter went to trial. Almost all cases settle before trial. Once the complaint is filed in court, it is part f the public record.
Was admitted to me I didn't get a position I applied for was due to my teeth, witch is caused by my disability. Over my 7 years experience and went with 2 year employee I trained. They refuse to fallow ADA, making policies to overlook my position and over looking policies to suit themselves.... Read more »
It is illegal to discriminate based upon disability. Denying you a promotion (in favor of non-disabled person) and requiring only you to work weekends (while letting the non-disabled people have weekends off) may be evidence of discrimination. These cases are very fact specific. You should consult...Read more »
My dad received an arbitration agreement that he is "voluntarily,"/ required to sign. His employer said if he doesn't he may lose his employment. My biggest concern other than this seeming unfair is that it states both parties would have to cover their own costs. He was told to... Read more »

I am sorry but your post does not make much sense.

When you have a disabling condition that makes it such that you cannot perform the essential functions of your job without some kind of reasonable accommodation, you need to place the employer on notice of your restrictions and provide suggested ways you could be accommodated so that you can...Read more »
Far more would need to be known to answer your question. For instance if monitoring or reading emails is part of your job and you are not being singled out as part of an attempt to win you over to their way of thinking, it may not be harassment based on sexual preference or identity. On the other...Read more »

Your post, however, does not disclose any illegal...Read more »
