Does your boss owe you money? Know your reimbursement rights

If you have ever had to buy your own uniform, use your own car for work or cover other costs on the job, you may be entitled to reimbursement. However, if you don't know your rights, your employer might not pay you what you are owed. That's why we have created this brief SlideShare presentation to help you learn about the law.

Class action filed against Dollar General for consumer fraud

Class-action lawsuits in California and other states can serve a very useful purpose with respect to protecting consumers. For example, in one recent case a plaintiff filed a class-action complaint against Dollar General, the well-known discount retailer, alleging consumer fraud in the marketing of a motor oil that it sells in its stores. The DG oil brand that Dollar General sells has a statement on the can that says it "lubricates and protects your engine."  

Tougher equal pay laws in California for employers

You may have remembered Patricia Arquette's Oscar acceptance speech last year, calling for more attention to equal pay for women. Her stance made a stir not just within the industry but among California state legislators. The new year has brought a new equal pay law and standard for employers. One that will be harder to meet, bringing good news to employees in California.

Employment discrimination case ends in $600,000 verdict

Sex discrimination is defined as treating someone differently because of that person's sex. Discrimination due to gender in any aspect of employment comprises a violation of California and federal laws. An employee who has been the victim of such employment discrimination will usually initiate a complaint with the EEOC, which is the federal agency that handles such claims. However, in certain situations the case may be initiated before an agency of the state.

Lawsuits claim consumer fraud against several donut franchises

Several class action claims against a giant food retailer were recently filed in federal district courts. The lawsuits are in the nature of consumer fraud claims alleging that national franchiser Dunkin' Donuts illegally taxed consumers on the purchase of coffee bean bags that were purchased to take home. State tax laws allegedly provide that such purchases cannot be taxed. It is unknown whether California stores would be involved in future claims, but the claims filed so far involve about a dozen different stores in other states.

Class actions claim consumer fraud against 2 dog food makers

In California and other states, deceptive labeling of food products often is a basis for a consumer class action claim of fraud. The same is true of pet foods that contain deceptive labeling. A dog owner in another state recently filed two separate but virtually identical class action lawsuits claiming consumer fraud violations against Nestle and Wellpet, two major national dog food manufacturers and marketers.
