Fighting for Employment Rights for Over Two Decades

Our Los Angeles employment lawyers know that your job is a central part of your life. Your ability to work allows you to care for yourself and your family. For many workers, employment helps to define their purpose as providers for their loved ones and productive members of society.

However, some unethical employers take advantage of their workers’ need for continuing employment. They fail to pay required overtime, don’t allow mandated breaks, misclassify workers to deprive them of benefits, allow harassment or other forms of discrimination, retaliate against those who demand fair treatment, and even illegally terminate certain workers in violation of state and federal law. If this happens, you need a lawyer you can trust.

Do I Need an Employment Attorney?

If experiencing unfair employment practices at work, the first thing you should do is speak with your employer. Review your company’s policy and try to get the matter handled internally. Document evidence and follow up with the necessary party. If your claim is ignored or not taken seriously, then you should consider filing a claim.

Depending on the type of claim, you can file with the following agencies:

Be sure to follow the appropriate time deadlines for each. After filing a claim, the agency will ask for evidence and investigate your claim. If they determine that your claim is valid, they will try and set up mediation so that you can settle with your employer.

During this process, it is advised to have an employment lawyer. An attorney can help put the law in perspective while also offering advice. They can also handle deadlines and uncomfortable confrontations with your employer. Moreover, they can represent you in court if mediation fails and you cannot settle under fair terms.

California Employment Laws

Through the combination of federal and state laws, California workers enjoy some of the most comprehensive protections in the country. These Federal Employment Laws include:

The above laws apply to workers across the country. However, California has specific laws that offer even more protection. These laws include:

  • The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) – This law makes it illegal for employers with five or more workers to discriminate against employees based on a protected class. These classes include sex, gender, age, race, pregnancy, and disability.
  • The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) – This law amended the 1991 California family and medical leave law. It requires employers to provide leave for the birth of a child without fear of losing employment.

With different sets of laws that apply in different situations, it is important to retain an employment attorney. They can help you sort through the applicable laws and ensure that you understand your rights.
