If your employer makes you use your car or cellphone for your work, or if you are required to buy supplies, uniforms, tools, pay for parking and spend money for the benefit of your employer, you should be getting reimbursed – If you’re not reimbursed, you may have a case.
Salaries, Wages, Tips
You should get paid for all the time you work. Employers regularly do not pay for all hours worked, do not pay overtime when they should, pay improper salaries to avoid overtime, and do not properly pay commissions, bonuses, spiffs, and tips. If you think this is happening to you, you may have a case.
Sometimes employees need to take a leave of absence from work. This may be because of a pregnancy, an illness, the need to care for loved one, or it may be for military service, jury duty, or due to a disability. When such a need arises the law affords employment protection in certain circumstances. If your employer is not working with you, or retaliates against you due to your need for such a leave, you may have a case.
Harassment & Discrimination
Your employer and its executives, supervisors, and employees may not discriminate against you or harass you based on your race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status. If they do, you may have a case.
