Employment Attorney

For many people, their career is about not only making money but also achieving great personal growth and fulfillment. When your rights are violated in the workplace, it may leave you feeling angry, confused, and overwhelmed, and making the choice to file an employment lawsuit can be scary. This position can also be isolating, especially if you are still employed by the company or your case involves a supervisor. Your employment attorney can help cut through the feelings of confusion and assess your legal options without putting you at risk for retaliation. We know that employment lawsuits can come from any employment circumstance, whether you’re working for a Fortune 500 company, small business, or even a nonprofit.

Discrimination Statistics

Every year, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing receives approximately 23,000 complaints from members of the public who have been the victims of civil rights violations. Over 86% of those complaints (19,000+) involved employment discrimination. The unfortunate consequence of these regular complaints is that companies and their legal teams have gotten very good at avoiding responsibility for their actions. Our experience gives us great insight into the tactics often used by large corporations, and your employment attorney will work day and night to ensure that you have the advantage. Our #1 goal is representing your best interests while protecting you from further suffering and retaliation.

Lawsuit Challenges

Employment cases often present unique challenges that require an experienced employment attorney. Always treat claims with a strong sense of urgency due to the varying statute of limitations that exist. For example, you must file wrongful termination charges within 300 days of the termination in question. On the other hand, most unpaid wage cases fall under the three-year statute of limitations. Although the process can be confusing, many people who have filed employment lawsuits find that the experience helps to validate their experience and starts a journey of healing. We know that you have a long road ahead of you, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

In the legal system, there are no guarantees and no quick fixes. Many people have a strong basis for an employment case but avoid filing because of the perceived complexity and time investment. We urge you to reach out to an employment attorney for a consultation. You have the right to feel secure and protected in the workplace.

Employment Law Catagories

Your case may fall into one of the following categories:

Discrimination

Both California and federal laws prevent employers from discriminating on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, and disability. Discrimination may mean harassment, failure to promote, or even assault.

Retaliation

When you object to workplace practices, harassment or discrimination, your employer cannot retaliate against you. If your employer has taken action that would dissuade a reasonable employee from opposing discriminatory conduct, this is considered retaliation. Retaliation can include…

Wrongful Termination

If you were forced to quit or fired for reasons of discrimination, harassment, or whistleblowing, your employer may be found in violation of state and federal law. Your employment attorney will examine every detail of your case to determine if there are grounds for a lawsuit.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is a gross violation of your rights, as a citizen and also as an employee. We fully commit to delivering justice for victims of any sexual abuse or harassment. We hold this area of law to the highest level of importance and demonstrate a complete intolerance for any perpetrator.

Unpaid Wages

Unpaid wages doesn’t always mean a bounced check or missed direct deposit. It can also involve unpaid overtime, working through meals or breaks, failure to provide agreed upon bonus pay, or withheld payment for meals and rest breaks.

Whistleblower

Doing the right thing isn’t always easy, especially when you experience retaliation as a result of whistleblowing. If you’ve experienced a violation of your employee rights as a result of whistleblowing, your employment lawyer will work with you to see that you receive reparations.
