The Women's Employment Rights Clinic of Golden Gate University School of Law has written this handbook to help guide California employees who have legal questions regarding their employment. The chapters include broad overviews of different areas of the law. The law changes frequently, and this book contains only basic information. Employees should use this handbook as a starting place for further action and advice; it is not meant to be a substitute for legal counsel.
