Man fired after raising concerns about fraud sues former employer

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California will oversee the consolidated legal complaints of a man who alleges that his employer dismissed him in an act of retaliation. The man had been involved in a business deal with Roadrunner Intermodal Services when it bought all of stock for Central Cal Transportation in 2012. He also accepted a position to work as vice president of Central Cal Transportation after Roadrunner assumed ownership. His lawsuit aims accusations of failure to pay wages, libel, slander and wrongful termination at Roadrunner.

Employees take action against 24 Hour Fitness

California residents who are looking for work may be able to find it at 24 Hour Fitness. However, former employees have filed many complaints about the company in the past 20 years. One former manager said that the company was more focused on bringing in members than making a difference in anyone's life. In response, it has tried to curtail the ability of its workers to file such claims in the future. However, their actions may have violated federal labor law according to the National Labor Relations Board.

Harassment based on gender was unlikely to be reported while just 8 percent of incidents involving unwanted touching were reported. Most victims in California and elsewhere failed to report harassment out of fear that nothing would happen after a claim was filed.
