Many people in California have the misfortune to work for employers who care more about their bottom line than they do about their employees’ rights – employers who act abusively, greedily, negligently, or unfairly towards them. If that describes your employer’s attitude and behavior towards you, you may feel helpless, but you don’t have to suffer in silence. An experienced Calabasas employment lawyer can stand up for your rights under the law (because you have many!).
The empathetic, diligent team of attorneys at Southern California Attorneys, A.P.C. is dedicated to defending workers’ rights. We want to help you make a case against your employer if they have hurt you, put your health at risk, stolen wages you rightfully earned, or otherwise mistreated you. Together, we have over 60 years of combined experience advocating for clients in a variety of workplace law cases. Our Calabasas employment lawyers may be able to assist you and secure financial compensation for you if any of the following describes your situation:
Your Employer Is Underpaying You
Employers often find creative ways to skirt the law when it comes to paying their employees’ wages in order to keep more money in their own pockets. If your employer has committed any wage and hour violations against you, such as….
- Misclassifying you in order to avoid paying overtime
- Failing to pay overtime properly
- Paying you late
- Not paying you the minimum wage of the county in which you work
- Docking your pay unfairly
- Expecting you to work off the clock or during rest/meal breaks
…then they have essentially withheld the wages that you worked for under the law; they have committed wage theft, and you deserve to recover those wages plus additional damages that you may be entitled to. Our Calabasas employment lawyers are familiar with federal and state wage and hour laws, including overtime laws. We can help you determine how much you are owed and then make a strong case for full back pay.
Your Employer Is Hostile Toward You
Workplace grudges, rivalries, and romantic feelings can easily turn into resentment, anger, or even unwanted sexual advances. If your supervisor repeatedly abuses their authority and creates a “hostile work environment”, (or if they do not take measures to prevent a colleague from doing so) then you may have grounds to make a legal claim against them. If you raise concerns about their unethical/illegal behavior or take a stand, and they retaliate against you in any way, such as…
- Increasing the amount of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse
- Cutting you off from opportunities for advancement
- Unfairly assigning you harsh or degrading tasks
- Maligning you to colleagues or superiors
- Sabotaging your work performance
- Terminating your employment
….then our Calabasas employment lawyers may be able to hold them accountable and secure you compensation for the injustice you suffered.
Your Employer Discriminates Against You
Employers in the state of California can fire employees without cause, but they cannot arbitrarily show favoritism or terminate workers based on their sex, disability, parental status, race, religion, age, or for other discriminatory reasons.
It is not always easy to make a case for wrongful termination or discrimination. Many employers are careful to hide the real reason they are firing an employee or not promoting an employee specifically to avoid a lawsuit. That’s why seeking legal advice can be invaluable.
If you believe that you lost your job or other career opportunities because of discrimination or because your employer had a grudge against you, call a Calabasas employment lawyer to consider your options. At Southern California Attorneys A.P.C., we will take the time to investigate your claim, and we know how to identify the subtle signs of discrimination. We know the right questions to ask and the evidence we need to gather to support your case. Because we are a multilingual law firm, we are able to communicate with you and work with you even if English is not your native language; because even noncitizens have rights under employment laws, we can protect you even if you are an undocumented immigrant.
Your Employer Is Ignoring Your Health And Safety
Unfortunately, many companies try to save money by ignoring their responsibilities to provide a safe workplace. If your employer…
- Blocks fire exits
- Provides inadequate safety equipment
- Violates safety procedures for using heavy equipment
- Exposes you to dangerous chemicals regularly
…then they are endangering you and the other employees who work with you, and you should take action immediately to put an end to their negligence. Our Calabasas employment lawyers can make a strong case for you to recover compensation.
