Former Snapchat employee sues for wrongful termination

As many people are aware, the California tech industry is a behemoth now. There is fierce competition between companies both big and small, and there are significant barriers to prominence given the wealth of some of the elite tech companies, the difficulty in retaining talent and the simple fact that the market has become a bit saturated. All of these factors play a role in a recent wrongful termination lawsuit filed by Anthony Pompliano, who left Facebook for Snapchat.

Sexual harassment allegations plague national parks

Many women dream of one day making a living by working in one of Florida and the nation's national parks, but an influx of recent allegations alleging sexual harassment and misconduct may be making these women think twice. Per The Atlantic, more than 60 former National Park Service employees came forward to the same publication in 2016, alleging they were sexually harassed or mistreated in the workplace. Many of the complaints followed a similar pattern in that they were filed by female workers who claimed that little was done to address their concerns or protect them.

How the EEOC protects against retaliation claims

Retaliation is an incredibly common claim by employees who say they were punished or fired in retaliation for legitimate and legal acts on their part. A common example is an employee upholding his or her rights or filing a legitimate claim with human resources, and their employer found it necessary to punish or fire them. This is unacceptable and the victimized employee should seek legal help to pursue their case. This is how many wrongful termination cases begin.

Too many ways for discrimination to occur

Discrimination is a broad term that can apply to a number of different areas of the employer-employee relationship. But what is undisputed about this term is that it is illegal and a horrible practice by any individual or party. If you work somewhere and feel that the company utilizes discriminatory practices or that certain employees harass you or treat you differently because of your race, religion or other factor, then you should consider your rights and legal options.
