Absenteeism and unemployment compensation

When a worker is continuously absent from work, it can be a major issue for California employers and other employees. However, it may also become an issue for the absentee worker. If an employer fires an employee for habitual absences, it could end up affecting that employee’s ability to collect unemployment compensation. According to the State of California Employment Development Department, an employee cannot become unemployed due to his or her own actions if he or she wants to claim unemployment benefits.

Restaurant workers are frequently subjected to sexual harassment

California has countless restaurants that cater to millions of residents and tourists. Behind the glamorous façade is an unfortunate side for many of the servers working in the restaurant industry. At the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., we are aware of the conditions that you might face if you work in a restaurant. Sexual harassment is a problem that is particularly prevalent in the industry.

What should I know about sexual harassment?

As an employer in California, you should have a good understanding of sexual harassment and the havoc it can wreak within the workplace. With the right information you can ensure that your workers enjoy a pleasant working environment while also sidestepping any potential legal issues that can accompany instances of harassment.

Misclassification: a threat to a worker’s FLSA protections

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, California employers have the responsibility of ensuring their employees are compensated correctly and fairly. In some situations, a company may classify a worker incorrectly, and it might infringe upon his or her rights as an employee. As such, it is crucial to understand how a classification is determined and what is being done to prevent miscategorization.

Protecting workers against workplace discrimination

Californians have the right to be employed and not fear that they will be discriminated against based on their age, gender, sex, skin color, race, nationality, disability or pregnancy. In fact, there are many laws that specifically prohibit certain behaviors. Employers as well as employees should become familiar with what is being done to combat workplace discrimination.
