California residents are likely familiar with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements that have given voice to many victims of sexual bullying, assault and harassment. Much of this harassment took place at the workplace, and much of it was perpetrated by men in positions of power.
You never expect to be the victim of sexual harassment at your place of employment, but there's always a chance this could happen. From your supervisor to a coworker to a client, it's possible someone could put you in an awkward and potentially dangerous situation.
California residents may have heard about allegations made by employees or contractors who performed services for Donald Trump about not being paid properly. Trump's former personal driver filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization asking for 3,300 hours of unpaid overtime over the past six years. Statutes of limitation prevent him from seeking wages from before 2012. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff says that he worked 55 hours a week on a fixed salary.
