Participating in the political process in the United States can be one of the most rewarding things a citizen can do. We are all free to express our hope for the future of the country through financial donations, membership in political organizations, running for office, and other political activities. And we each have a choice about which political organizations and movements we support. In California, it is illegal for an employer to use threats of job loss in an attempt to coerce or influence its employees’ political activities. For example, your employer can’t force you to make a political donation you don’t want make or stop you from running for political office. If you think you’ve been the target of this kind of discrimination, please call me. I can help you sort through the issues and ensure that you are compensated for any injustice.
