If you have recently had your employment terminated in the state of California, it is likely that you will be feeling quite shocked and worried about your future. It is common for employers to disregard the rights of their employees during the process of employment termination, whether intentionally or intentionally. This is why it is important that you familiarize yourself on your rights to seek and negotiate severance pay.
If you notice that there are illegal or unjust activities happening in your workplace, you may have reservations about reporting them because you are worried about how it might affect your career.
