How does California function as an at-will state?

Like many other states in the country, California laws state that employers can fire their staff "at-will". In other words, they can fire one of their employees without needing to give a reason. But many people think that if a state has "at-will" laws, then they as employees do not have any rights or opportunity for legal action when they have been fired. This could not be further from the truth.

Common examples of employment discrimination

There are times when we might feel disappointment because we didn't get the job we wanted, if another colleague got chosen for a promotion instead of us or offended that our idea was not taken seriously in a meeting. Although instances like these are simply a fact of life, there can be times when we are treated unfairly and discriminated against. In short, there might be times at work where we are not judged by our merits but instead by an irrelevant factor such as our sex, race or disability.

The difference between sexual and nonsexual harassment

When feeling intimidated, embarrassed or pressured by someone at work, it can feel terrible. But while trying to figure out the best way to deal with the situation, you may also wonder if you are making a big deal out of the situation. When feeling embarrassed about an event, it is likely that you would prefer not to raise any more awareness of the situation to others.
