In California, there are several state and federal laws intended to protect employees at all points of the employment process.This includes fair, unbiased treatment during hiring, day-to-day work, and even termination. Unfortunately, many employers take advantage of their employees, and consistently break the laws put in place to ensure a safe and just work environment. If you have an employer that you feel has breached your contract or isn’t applying workplace principles required of them by law, our Ventura employment lawyers can help you protect your rights and secure the compensation that you deserve.
Examples Of Employment Law Cases We Handle
Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime
Depending on what kind of job you have, you may be eligible for overtime wages. The state of California requires that employers pay their employees one and one-half times their standard rate of pay for all hours above a standard 40 hour workweek. If an employee works more than 12 hours in a workday, or 8 hours a day for more than 6 consecutive days, employees are eligible for double their standard rate. An employer might unknowingly or knowingly deny your overtime pay. Either way it is still illegal and unfair, as employers are required to know the overtime wage laws to ensure employees are compensated fairly.
Discrimination and harassment in the workplace shouldn’t be as frequent in the workplace as it is, but it is an unfortunate reality many employees have to face everyday. Discrimination also isn’t one size fits all, and it looks different for every employee. Harassment from managers or co-workers because of your race, sex, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, parental status and more is discrimination and it’s against the law!
Wrongful termination is common amongst California employers. Legally, they are able to fire employees without cause. This, however, gets confused often with terminating employees due to illegal reasons, such as discriminatory or retaliatory reasons. If you feel you were wrongfully fired, we can help you fight for your rights and secure compensation.
Ignoring Health & Safety
Many employers will try and save themselves money by cutting corners when it comes to health and safety. They won’t prioritize ensuring proper procedures or safety equipment are put in place in order to avoid extra costs. If you’re noticing hazards at work that put you in danger, you can make a claim!
