Signs Of Something Wrong In The Workplace
You may be justified for suspecting injustice at your place of employment for any of the following reasons.
Your employer classifies you as an exempt employee, calling you a manager, when in fact, your duties resemble those of hourly wage employees, apparently to keep from paying you overtime when you are asked to work late.
Coworkers, clients or upper management personnel tell off-color jokes in your presence, make fun of your wardrobe or body type, comment on your personal life or proposition you sexually. You may have asked them to stop, without success.
To do your job, you may be required to supply expensive equipment, pay for internet services or buy your own uniform. You wonder if your employer is legally required to reimburse you for job-related expenses.
When you attempt to take a legal family or medical leave per the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) or the New Parent Leave Act (NPLA), your employer disapproves or if you have already taken such a leave, you experience apparent retaliation through a demotion or discharge.
In any of these or other troubling aspects of your work environment quality, you are wise to realize that it’s time to discuss the facts and explore options with an employment law attorney.
