Can your employer withhold part of your tips?

Employees who are given cash tips often don't have much trouble collecting them promptly and without issue, especially if the tips are just left on tables for the specific employees, rather than put into centralized tip jars. However, customers are paying with credit cards more and more often in the modern day. These do have lines where tips can be written in, but they change the collection process.

Retaliations and wrongful termination in California

Wrongful termination lawsuits fall under a lot of different categories. For example, a California resident might be terminated from his or her employment as form of gender, age or racial discrimination. Wrongful termination as a form of retaliation could also occur for a variety of reasons. When an employee is terminated out of retaliation, he or she may be able to fight the termination in court to either preserve his or her employment or seek financial compensation for damages caused by the termination.

What are some signs of possible wrongful termination?

If you've been let go from a job recently, have you considered that you might have been wrongfully terminated? The law isn't on your side simply because you don't agree with a termination decision -- employers, like employees, do have rights. However, there are some signs that could point toward a wrongful firing.

Are you taking the right steps for a friendly workplace?

While your employer bears a lot of the responsibility for creating and encouraging an appropriate, safe and harassment-free workplace, there are things you can do to contribute. When everyone on a team puts in the effort to make the workplace more friendly and appropriate, the risks of harassment and discrimination can be reduced.
