Protecting Your Rights in the California Workplace

Employees can frequently be overwhelmed when problems arise in the workplace. Often they feel that their employer is doing something wrong, but are unsure if what is happening is illegal and if they will be protected if they stand up for themselves. In addition, because an employee's very livelihood is at stake, the fear of losing their job or other job stress will often disrupt every other aspect of their life. Under such circumstances, it is essential that employees know their rights.
