Examples Of Employment Law Cases We Handle
Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime
Across the state of California there are employers who will unknowingly withhold overtime wages from their employees due to a lack of knowledge, which is still illegal and unfair – it is their responsibility to know the law and abide by it! Other employers knowingly withhold or deny overtime wages in order to keep more money in their pockets, and find ways to cover it up. For example, some employers will give an employee a phony title that implies a management level position. Management levels are typically excluded from being able to obtain overtime pay. Another example is “off-the-clock,” work, where an employer will have you wait to clock in or continue working when you clock out. No matter the reason, it is illegal for your employer to keep your earned pay from you! If you’ve worked above your standard 8 hour workdays and 40 hour workweeks, and you are a non-exempt employee, you are likely entitled to overtime pay!
Discrimination and harassment unfortunately occurs in workplaces across the nation. Many employees face discrimination or harassment from co-workers or supervisors without even realizing that it is happening.
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
Harassment can be verbal, physical, or even digital via emails or other online work platforms. If you suspect or know that you’ve been discriminated against, don’t hesitate to call our Thousand Oaks employment lawyers. We will fight to hold your employer accountable!
In California, employers have the ability to fire employees without cause. Many employers, however, will use this to cover up what is actually wrongful termination. Employers cannot legally terminate an employee on the basis of race, age, religion, sex, disability, parental status, sexual orientation, or other discriminatory reasons. It is crucial that you seek seasoned employment lawyers who are familiar with employment laws so that your rights are protected if you believe that you’ve been wrongfully terminated from your job.
Ignoring Health & Safety
Many employers will try and save their pennies by cutting corners where they can. Unfortunately, the health and safety of their employees is often what employers choose to neglect. If your employer isn’t ensuring that proper safety equipment and procedures are available to their employees, and are putting you at risk, you can make a claim against them for compensation.
