Your job is a central part of your life; your ability to work allows you to care for yourself and your family and to obtain the things that make life worthwhile. And for many workers, employment helps to define their purpose in life, who they are, and their place in the world, as both providers for their loved ones and productive members of society.
Having a job is an important aspect of life; but some unethical employers take advantage of their workers’ need for continuing employment−by failing to pay required overtime, not allowing mandated breaks, misclassifying workers to deprive them of benefits, allowing sexual or racial harassment or other forms of discrimination, retaliating against those who demand fair treatment, and even wrongfully terminating certain workers in violation of state and federal law.
The State of California leads the country in its legal protection for its workers. But laws are only as good as their enforcement, and if employees don’t stand up for their rights in the workplace, their plight may never be known or rectified.
If you have been terminated from your job for a reason that violates the law, you are entitled to bring a legal action against your employer for compensation for the damages that you have suffered, while forcing the company to comply with the protections the law provides.
At the Los Angeles employment law firm of Mathew & George, we understand the importance of a just and non-hostile work environment to the lives of individuals and their families and are proud to represent hard working Californians who have suffered financially or emotionally from illegal employment practices. We are passionate about fighting for justice in the workplace and are committed to doing whatever the law allows to enforce your rights to a fair, equitable, non-hostile, and non-discriminatory workplace. This is not something most workers can accomplish on their own. It takes years of legal expertise and experience, which is what you will find at Mathew & George.
We can often negotiate a satisfactory settlement without your ever having to appear in court. That is always our goal. But sometimes employers are noncompliant and uncooperative, and an equitable out-of-court settlement is not possible.

No two employment cases and no two clients are exactly alike. At Mathew & George, our employment law attorneys recognize that there is no “one size fits all” solution, and we take the time to understand your unique situation and needs. We listen, analyze, and provide honest, straightforward answers to all of your questions. Even if the answer is not what you were hoping for, you can rely on its veracity.
We treat you as an individual and work towards a personalized solution to your employment problem─one that will provide you with the means to get back to work in a non-discriminatory environment, where the law is respected, and equal opportunity prevails, as well as to be compensated for the damages you have suffered.
