Employment is vital to our financial security, our sense of accomplishment and our self-esteem. When employers wrongfully discharge employees or subject employees to unfair treatment in violation of the law, they do more than merely deprive their employees of wages — they deprive their employees of a critical component of their lives.
In light of these fundamental truths, California legislators enacted the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), one of the most powerful and comprehensive employment laws in the nation. Other critical laws such as the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), Paid Family Leave Act (PFLA) and Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) Act provide additional protections to California workers.
