How common is sexual harassment in the fast food industry?

For whatever reason, many people probably imagine that sexual harassment in the workplace is more likely to occur in an office environment than in other contexts. But, according to a recent report, sexual harassment may be quite a problem in places where many of us interact with others on a weekly basis: fast food restaurants.

Schimmel & Parks, APLC Obtains Significant Appellate Win In Whistleblower Retaliation Case

Schimmel & Parks has just won an important appellate victory against the State of California Department of Corrections on behalf of a whistleblower who was retaliated against after being reinstated back into his job. The State of California had sought to have the whistleblower's case thrown out based on the argument that the First Amendment protected the State's adverse actions against the whistleblower. The California Second District Court of Appeal, Division 7, disagreed with the State, and agreed with Schimmel & Parks, APLC's arguments that the State was not protected under the First Amendment for the adverse decisions and actions it took against the whistleblower after he was reinstated. The whistleblower's case for retaliation can now proceed forward, and Schimmel & Parks, APLC can seek justice before the trial court on behalf of its client. The case is entitled Goleco v. State of California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (Cal. Court Appeal, Second Dist., Div. Seven, Case No. B280591, Sept. 18, 2018).
