Employment Law Practice Areas
Losing your job is stressful under any circumstance. Having to deal with a wrongful termination is even more unbearable. Some companies fabricate the reasons for a termination in an effort to get rid of employees for unlawfully. For example, employees who become disabled after suffering a work injury are often terminated for “lack of work” or mysterious performance problems when they attempt to return to their jobs with restrictions. Let us protect your rights and help you fight back.
Unfortunately, it is common in some companies for employees to experience unlawful workplace discrimination in hiring, discipline, promotion, demotion and termination. These acts are often documented as “legitimate” actions by companies seeking to mask unlawful treatment.
California law prohibits workplace harassment based on the above protected characteristics. Is your supervisor or coworker making inappropriate sexual or racial comments to you? Is your employer refusing to address the hostile work environment? If your answer is yes, you may be entitled to damages.
WAGE AND HOUR LAW
California wage and hour laws provide strict requirements regarding meal and rest periods, minimum wage, the payment of wages, overtime, and commissions. Unfortunately, wage and hour violations are common and can result from your employer’s failure to understand the laws, or be a form of wage theft. Don’t let your employer take advantage of you. Our attorneys are well-versed in wage and hour law and can help you understand your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
Have you risked your career to expose company corruption, unethical conduct, or the company’s disregard for employee health and safety? Were you retaliated against for doing the right thing?
