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.
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.
