Q. I need to know how to get my last check from my previous employer. And if I have a sexual harassment case.
A: I'll chip in because there are two things you can do immediately to protect your rights and get your pay. First, go to the Labor Commissioner's website and file a claim online for help getting your last paycheck. You can do this on your own, and you should to preserve your rights. Here's the website which you can cut and paste into your browser: https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/HowToFileWageClaim.htm The second thing you should do as soon as is possible is to file a claim for sexual harassment with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Here's their website: https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/ You can copy and paste the link into your browser, which will take you to the home page. After you get there, scroll down until you see the box for Employment Discrimination, and click on that box. That will take you to the page on their website where you can scroll down until you see FAQ: Sexual Harassment. You should read that and it will show you how to file your own complaint online. You should also follow the advice Mr. Pedersen gave you, and find a good lawyer to assist you through this process. There are many really good lawyers out there, of all genders, ready and willing to help you. And if you file your claim within the first 300 days after your termination, the law gives you the right to recover all your attorney's fees from the harasser and his employer. So that becomes a very important step to take at the very beginning. One more thing. Write up your story while it is fresh in your mind. Name all the witnesses, and save all your documents. Tell your story as you would to your best friend. Start at the beginning of the job you had, right up to the last day you worked. Cover all the basic details, and describe with your greatest ability what happened, what was said to you and what you said and did in response, how you felt and reacted and who you told about this. Then focus on the impact this had on you, financially and mentally and emotionally. Doing this will help you remember the events as time goes on. And it helps to get this all out. Just do your best and save all your documents and records to turn over copies to the lawyer you find to help you. Good luck.
Q. Is there any legal standing for harassment protection from being forced to wear a face mask as condition of employment?
A: The short answer is no. Even though you were fortunate to recover from Covid-19, you can still spread the virus to others. Your employer is most likely required by your county health department to continue requiring all employees to wearing a mask if you are otherwise in an indoor, office setting with other employees present. We are dealing with a monumental health risk, the result of which is that everyone must cooperate and we must all do our part to stop the spread of this deadly disease. In these circumstances, individual liberties sometimes have to yield to what our health authorities tell us is the most efficacious way to get the virus under control. Masking and social distancing will be with us until we develop herd immunity, which can only happen when we all get vaccinated against the virus and can no longer spread it. It is a time consuming process, testing our patience and resilience. Hang in there and make the best of it.
Q. How do I begin a lawsuit 18 usc 1983 against housing authority workers and towing company, police gave tickets wrongly?
A: First you find a civil rights lawyer to review your case and advise you if there is potential merit in your claims. Most good civil rights lawyers will know what to do and will advise you based on the facts of your case. You can help yourself by writing a chronology of the events, starting at the beginning; include a list of all the witnesses, good and bad; save all your documents which will help you prove what happened. Once you have gotten that all together, you can provide it to the lawyer you find to help you. Do not wait or delay, because there are time limits within which you must file your case. Make an extra copy of everything, and give the copies to the lawyer. You can go to your county bar association's website, and look for their lawyer referral service. That should get you started.
