Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered
Q. how would I approach age & bulling in the work force? it's been brought to management. no resolution has taken place.
A: I would only add to Mr. Pederson's answer below is that California employers with over fifty employees must provide two hours of sexual harassment training every other year to supervisors and managers. The training must include abusive conduct prevention, in other words, bullying in the workplace.

What is workplace bullying? The Workplace Bullying Institute describes it as: Repeated, health-harming mistreatment of employees at work. It falls into one of the following three categories:

1. Threatening, humiliating, or intimidating workplace behavior.

2. Work interference/sabotage of the person’s work performance.

3. Verbal abuse.
Q. Would the fact I'm 60 yrs old and quit a job I love with good pay to being unemployed,show believability of toxic wplce?
A: I agree with Maya's response below. Bullying alone may not be enough to prove age discrimination. Evidence that your boss bullied and intimidated you because of your age to force you to quit is essential. You should discuss the details of your case with an experienced employment law attorney.
Q. What is declaratory judgement and what is an example of it?
A: A declaratory judgment is a legal judgment issued by a court that declares parties' rights, duties, or obligations in a legal dispute without ordering any specific action or awarding monetary damages. Essentially, the court issues a legal opinion to clarify the legal rights and responsibilities of the parties involved in a dispute.

Declaratory judgments are commonly used when parties disagree about interpreting a contract, a statute, or applying a law to a particular situation. For example, suppose two parties are in a dispute over interpreting a contract. In that case, either party can ask the court to issue a declaratory judgment to clarify the meaning of the disputed contract provision.

Another example is intellectual property law, where parties often seek declaratory judgments to determine whether a particular action they are considering taking would infringe on another party's patents, trademarks, or copyrights. Courts are sometimes asked to issue declaratory judgments to determine whether an insurance contract provides coverage to an insured.

Declaratory judgments can help resolve legal disputes, providing clarity and guidance to the parties involved without needing a full trial or a specific order of action.
