A California company could be sued if an employee is fired for complaining about sexual harassment, and that has happened at a Trader Joe's supermarket. The ex-employee filed an internal complaint against a co-worker who gave him an offensive gift at a company Christmas party. His employer fired him the next month.
There is perhaps nothing more joyful than welcoming a new child into the world. Whether you are a first-time mother or are adding a new addition to your growing family, it is an incredible time in your life. You want to be able to spend as much time as possible with your child, and employers are required by law to provide you with leave to allow you and your family to enjoy these moments together.
Some California employees may have faced workplace sexual harassment that they did not report for fear of harming their career. Even with a supportive boss and a company that would not turn a blind eye to this behavior, there can be other repercussions.
