California employment laws serve to protect workers from being wrongfully and unfairly treated in the workplace. Without the protection found in the laws and regulations of the California Labor Code, employees would be unable to perform their jobs due to workplace harassment of different kinds. The Labor Code, as well as numerous other legislative acts, has been put in place so that employers and employees alike can know their rights, and so that violators can be held accountable for their actions.
