Examples Of Employment Law Cases We Handle
Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime
You don’t go to work for free; you go with the understanding that you’ll be properly compensated for your 40 hours of work. When you work above standard workweek hours in a non-exempt profession, you should be paid the California overtime wage which is one and one-half times your regular rate of pay. If you exceed 12 hours of work in one day, or 8 hours of work for 6 consecutive days you are entitled to double your standard rate of pay.
Discrimination is the unfair or prejudicial treatment of people and groups based on characteristics such as race, gender, age, or sexual orientation. When it happens to you in your place of work, it can affect your self-esteem, the way your coworkers treat and view you, and even prohibit you from moving up within a company and making financial advances.
Harassment can be any sexual, physical, digital or verbal advance or assault against you. It can come from coworkers, supervisors, owners etc… Harassment can leave you feeling unsafe in your work environment.
Oftentimes, employees are unaware of what workplace discrimination/harassment looks like and whether or not it is happening to them. This opens the door for unlawful employers to abuse and exploit you. Don’t let them get away with it. Our San Francisco employment lawyers will fight to protect you under California’s employment laws!
Wrongful termination is when your employee fires you on the basis of your race, age, religion, parental status and more. While firing an employee without cause is legal in California, discrimination is not. Employers know they can be sued for wrongful termination, so they are careful about the way they let an employee go. Our seasoned attorneys know what to look for in wrongful termination cases and know how to secure compensation for you.
Ignoring Health & Safety
Unfortunately, many companies and employers will try to save themselves money by cutting costs like proper safety equipment and procedures. Some safety hazards can include blocked safety exits, inadequate safety equipment, and exposure to dangerous chemicals and more! If your employer is putting you in a position like this, you are entitled to compensation.
