A Father’s Right: The Importance of Paternity Leave under the FMLA

The arrival of new little one in the home brings joy, excitement, and quite honestly, exhaustion. With all the emotional ups and downs a new baby can impose on a household, it’s no wonder parents need substantial time off to adjust and recuperate. California Family Rights Act (CFRA) states, “Male and female employees have the right to up to 12 weeks of leave to bond with a newborn baby, newly adopted or foster child.” It’s no surprise to either the community or employer when a mother takes leave to bond with her new child. However, with this important law in place, why don’t more fathers take bonding time with their new baby? A father’s role is different, and yet, equal to a mother’s role in their child’s life. It has been reported that the more involved a father is at the beginning stages of his infant’s life, the healthier the child will in fact be. Kyle Pruett, Clinical Professor of Child Psychiatry, declared in his article from the Zero to Three Journal, “Examining 2-month-old infants from middle income, two-parent families, Parke and Sawin (1975) found that the more fathers participated in bathing, feeding, diapering, and other routines of physical care, the more socially responsive the babies were. Furthermore, a year later these babies seemed more resilient in the face of stressful situations.” Fathers have a vital role to play in their young child’s life. Babies need to establish healthy relationships with not just one, but both parents right from the start. With the aid of the CFRA, fathers can take leave from work with the peace of mind their...

Dealing with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Both men and women have to deal with sexual harassment in the workplace, be it with a higher positioned employee or client. Individuals who work in any environment should learn the warning signs and know how to deal with someone who continues to harass in a sexual manner. Below is a short guide on how to deal with sexual harassment in the workplace. Recognize Harassment To get started, you need to be able to recognize when harassment is taking place. Sexual matters should not be discussed in the workplace, yet such discussions do take place. When an individual discusses something that you do not wish to talk about, you have the right to say so. If the individual continues and tries to make you feel uncomfortable, this is a form of harassment. The most common form comes in sexual advances of the individual, with the harasser trying to get a date, hookup or even unwanted touching. Know Your Human Resources Department Whenever you begin to work in a new position, it is important to get to know the Human Resources Department. This is who you would report to if an issue of sexual harassment were to take place. Human Resources can assist you with filing a complaint and taking care of any issues that may exist in the workplace. If you are subject to any type of sexual harassment, speak to someone. Never put up with such behaviors. If you find that higher ranking officials are trying to push you to do something you do not wish, perhaps to keep your positioning within a company, seek legal advice. Romain...

WHY WOULD I NEED AN EMPLOYMENT LAWYER?

California is arguably the most regulated state in the union and when it comes to employment laws, issues can get complicated rather quickly. This goes for both the employee and the employer. That’s why both businesses and workers alike in Southern California are lucky to have George G. Romain and the services of Romain Law available. The causes of labor disputes vary almost as widely as the broad spectrum of jobs in California. Add migrant workers, high unemployment rates and an uncertain economy to the mix and you have a good recipe for potentially improper work relations. While there are certainly many hundreds of large corporate firms with many thousands of employees, there are many more thousands of small businesses who hire only a few people. Large businesses tend to be aware of the rules when it comes to hiring practices, work and pay schedules because they have to be. Small businesses can often be completely ignorant of such obligations. For example, how do you determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor? What kinds of IRS forms need to be filed? When does a worker have the right to overtime pay? What obligations does a business have to provide health care? As mentioned, larger businesses tend to know the answers to these questions and often use payroll companies which are adept in the rigors of such matters, but make no mistake about it, those companies are very concerned about their bottom lines and their degree of generosity or miserliness is fine-tuned! This is why a consultation with the Romain Law firm can be a great...
