Suitable Seating in The Workplace, are You Being Left Standing on Your Feet?


Did You know that a California Law requires that employers provide all working employees with suitable seats when the nature of their work reasonably permits the use of seats? And, that companies have paid millions of dollars in litigation to employees for violating this law?

California employers to often rely on the fact that their employees are not aware of this law, and they get away with violating it by not making appropriate accommodations to their employees. They too regularly disregard how difficult it is for employees to stand for hours at a time to perform their work.

Therefore, the California Supreme Court passed a law that demands that employers must provide a seat to its employees when it is reasonable.

For example, bank tellers and cashiers have claimed that they can perform their duties while seated and secured massive settlements from their employers.
