    One has to look at the totality of the circumstances. Each incident must be looked in the context in which it is suggested. Usually it would take more than one remark directed at the male employee to substantiate a claim. It depends on the egregiousness of the comment and other factors. This remark would be similar to a male employee stating that X a female employee was "skirting" the issue or dancing around a subject or issue. Here, the context used may not be to create a pervasive...

    It would be helpful to have some facts as there may be other alternatives that should be explored. You neglected to say whether you are a teacher, administrator and what your observations have been. There are several attorneys who specialize in dealing with TITLE IX and school special education. I am curious why you are not seeking to litigate against the particular school district itself rather than the union. I assume that you are a member of the union and have standing to file a...

    Have your agreement analyzed. How are the "new product" and "domain" defined in the agreement?.Since your previous employer had yet tackled the area and you did not work nor were privy to it while at the company, nor was the company exploring it while you were, you may get a pass. Check with an attorney first.

    Provide the name of the employer first before you share any facts with the attorney. It is important for you to feel confident in your attorney not having a conflict of interest (e.g. does your attorney currently or in the past represent your employer? Once, you have been assured that there is nothing prohibiting the attorney from hearing the facts of your case, describe why you felt it necessary to contact an attorney; have you kept a chronological diary of the events? if not can you provide...

    Which one is the more important option? Win a small battle and lose the war? or lose the battle and win the war? Don't waste your fights on something this petty. Is it worth rocking the boat? I agree with the other two answers provided.

  7. If I am offered a severance pay for a personal injury at work, will I lose my option to file a lawsuit for the injury?

    Usually any time of severance agreement would contain a provision in favor of the employer that the amount being paid resolves ALL issues whether known or re-litigating this matter. You should have the agreement scrutinized by an attorney whose practice focuses upon employment law.

    Yes you should consult with a discrimination attorney. There are many more facts that are needed. For instance, how many employees does your employer have? Have there been other women who have taken leave while they were pregnant? It would appear that you have a sex, pregnancy/FMLA and retaliation claims to pursue. Send an email to document your understanding in writing, so that they cannot argue that somehow you misunderstood what the company's response was to your concerns.

  9. If someone posts my bail without me asking, am i obliged to pay them back?

    If the amount of the bail exceeded $500. You must have the agreement in writing. Oral testimony (parole evidence) can be used if she can find someone who heard you acknowledge that you intended on paying her back. Unless you signed a promissory note or acknowledged that you would have to pay her back you are not liable. However, it would be the moral and proper thing to do since you likely would have been in jail for a long time but for her.

    Submission of a settlement offer should be strategically done at the appropriate time. For instance, have you or a private investigator or the DFEH or EEOC started an investigation and secured declarations, statements or affidavits from potential witnesses? Has an assessment been conducted on whether you can indeed establish liability and if so, what type of damages can be proven by you? Be careful about bidding against yourself! Have you viewed the jury verdicts in cases with similar...
