Examples Of Employment Law Cases We Handle
Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime
There are many employers in the state of California that will knowingly or unknowingly withhold overtime wages from their employees. Whether it is due to a lack of knowledge, phony titles that imply exclusion from overtime pay, “off-the-clock,” work, or some other reason, it is illegal for your employer to keep your earned pay from you. This is not only harmful to employees who are missing opportunities for financial gain, but also has the potential to be detrimental to their families as well, who they may provide for. If you’ve worked above your standard 40 hour workweek,and you are a non-exempt employee, you are likely entitled to overtime pay! Our attorneys will fight for justice.
Discrimination and harassment is an unfortunate and frequent occurrence in workplaces across the state of California and the entire nation, despite many laws put in place that are meant to prohibit it. Every day, employees are treated unfairly based on their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and more. It is not only illegal, but extremely harmful to employees who are legally entitled to the ability to work in a space that is safe and free of discrimination and harassment.
Sometimes employees don’t even realize that they are being discriminated against. Workplace discrimination can look like, but is not limited to the following:
- Racial discrimination
- Ethnic discrimination (nation of origin)
- Discrimination based on ability/disability
- Age discrimination
- Gender discrimination
- Discrimination based on sexual orientation
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Discrimination based on parental status
- Retaliation discrimination
If you suspect discrimination, don’t hesitate to call our Los Angeles employment lawyers. We will advocate for your employer to be held accountable!
In California, employers are entitled to fire employees without cause, but they cannot terminate an employee on the basis of race, age, religion, sex, disability, parental status or other discriminatory reasons. Many employers are careful to hide the real reason they are firing an employee specifically to avoid a lawsuit. That’s why seeking experienced legal advice is critical to ensure that your rights are protected if you believe that you have been fired illegally.
Ignoring Health & Safety
Many employers will try and cut corners in order to save a buck. This unfortunately can lead to them ignoring their responsibilities to ensure a healthy and safe work environment for their employees. Some examples of an unsafe work environment are blocked fire exits, lack of proper safety equipment, violation of safety equipment usage and more! If your employer has put your health or safety at risk, we can help you take legal action!
