Examples Of Employment Law Cases We Handle
Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime
Depending on what job you have, you may be eligible to receive overtime wages when you work above an 8 hour workday and 40 hour workweek. Unfortunately, employers in California frequently both knowingly and unknowingly withhold overtime pay from their employees. This is illegal and unjust. If you’ve worked above your standard 40 hour workweek, you are entitled to and should receive overtime wages.
Workplace discrimination and harassment shouldn’t ever be a reality, but they are for many employees. Some employees are afraid to speak up because they either fear retaliation or are unfamiliar with what discrimination and harassment looks like. This keeps many employees from obtaining the legal help they need and securing compensation. When you are facing unfair or unequal treatment than that of your coworkers, you 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 and discrimination are two of the main forms of wrongful termination. 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. If you’ve been fired, and you suspect that it was illegal, you do have options. Unfortunately, wrongful discrimination can be difficult to prove, which is why it is essential you have seasoned San Diego employment lawyers on your side who will hold unlawful employers accountable for their actions.
Ignoring Health & Safety
Many employers will try to save themselves money by skipping out on ensuring that proper safety equipment and measures are put in place for employees. This unfortunately can put you in danger. Some examples of an unsafe work environment include blocked fire exits, lack of proper safety equipment, violation of safety equipment usage and more!
