3 key things all employees should know about FMLA

One federal law that requires many San Francisco employers to offer certain protections to their employees is the Family Medical Leave Act. FMLA offers additional sick time and job protection to workers who need time off to manage their own or their loved ones' health concerns. Workers who are denied FMLA, wrongfully terminated or experience retaliatory actions from their employers may pursue FMLA litigation

Dealing with a wrongful demotion

Being demoted can in some ways be more emotionally straining than a firing. This is because, at the end of the day, you will likely have to continue to interact and work with the people who demoted you. This can be upsetting and demoralizing, especially if you believe that you were wrongfully demoted.

3 red flags your job has a glass ceiling problem

If you are a woman in the workplace, you likely are aware of the "glass ceiling." This is a term that refers to the widespread difficulty women experience when trying to advance in their jobs and careers. The glass ceiling is evident in the fact that women only earn seventy-five percent of the salary of their male counterparts. 

Unsafe working conditions and the right to refuse work

Some types of work have the potential to be very dangerous. Construction or mining are two examples of industries that have many risks, and workers can be faced with new challenges and new dangers every day. As a result of the risks posed in workplaces, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has regulations in place to protect workers from unsafe work environments.

It has been reported that in the last 10 years, discrimination regarding age discrimination has dropped by almost 20 percent. Some would interpret this statistic as evidence to suggest that age discrimination is less prevalent in the working environment. However, many know anecdotally that this is simply not the case. With ever-advancing technological developments and a demand for younger workers, many experienced employees over the age of 40 experience wrongful termination and discrimination simply because of their age.
