Even though there are various laws in place to prevent such actions, some California employers have been known to use company reorganizations and reductions-in-force (RIF) as an excuse to illegally discriminate against employees.
Fortunately, our firm recently published an important SlideShare presentation outlining the legal rights of California employees who are the victims of illegal discrimination during company downsizing. Please view our presentation below for additional insight regarding this significant legal issue.
In this presentation, we discuss:
- The many California and federal statutes that protect you and your coworkers from illegal discrimination during a company reorganization or RIF
- The various classes of “protected employees” under both California and federal law
- The steps for proving your employer illegally fired you during a company reorganization or RIF, as well as the damages you may be entitled
For a more in-depth analysis of these, and other, important issues, we encourage you to download a free copy of our firm’s white paper titled, Downsizing And Discrimination: An Illegal Combination.
