California workers need to know when their working conditions are illegal

Naturally, most people are grateful and excited when they get hired for a new job. Or, if you were promoted to a new position at your current workplace, you probably approach your new duties with a greater sense of responsibility and willingness to succeed.

But sometimes the positive feelings associated with employment start to diminish when you realize how difficult the job is, or maybe even the working conditions are simply unbearable. In fact, sometimes working conditions are unlawful, and that is the main reason the job is difficult. Employees in California need to know when working conditions are illegal -- and what the options are.

How do I know if my working conditions are illegal?

Many employers provide their workers with what they need to stay safe and succeed. But many other employers make employees work in conditions that are unlawful and potentially harmful to the employee's health.

If you work in California, ask yourself the following questions. If you can say "yes" to any them, you may have grounds for an employment law claim and compensation for what you've endured.

  • Does your employer ever require you to work seven days in a week without a day's rest?
  • Does your employer fail to provide you with sick pay?
  • Are you required to stand for your entire shift when you could really do much of your work while seated?
  • If you work outside, does your employer fail to provide you with cooling-off breaks in hot weather?
  • When you're scheduled to work and you show up as scheduled, does your employer ever send you home before you complete the shift you were scheduled for?
