Fighting for Employee 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 sexual 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 a California Employment Lawyer?

If experiencing unfair employment practices at work, review your company’s policy and try to get the matter handled internally. Document evidence and follow up. If your claim is ignored or not taken seriously, then you should consider contacting an attorney and filing a claim.

Depending on the type of claim, you generally must file a claim with the appropriate government agency before you can sue your employer. 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 the government agency cannot help resolve your claim, you will need to file a lawsuit. This is where skilled California employee rights attorneys could help. We can help put the law in perspective while also offering advice. They can also handle deadlines and uncomfortable confrontations with your employer.

Without an attorney on your side, you may not be able to secure fair compensation. Often times, a lawsuit is the only way to hold an employer accountable for their unlawful actions. If you are in a situation where you need to file a lawsuit against your employer, contact our California employment lawyers today to learn more about your rights. Now serving clients in Irvine, CA.

How to Choose an Employment Attorney in California

Through the combination of federal and state laws, California workers enjoy some of the most comprehensive protections in the country. However, without the right lawyer, you may not be taking advantage of all the protections offered. When choosing employee attorneys, be sure that they:

  • Specialize in employment law. Employment law is a very specialized field. A general practice firm may not have the expertise needed to handle your case.
  • Have many years of experience. Without the proper experience, your attorney may not get the best result possible. A law firm should have at least 10 years of experience in their field.
  • Satisfied previous clients. Look at both testimonials on the website and on third party review sites. A good firm will have done right by their clients and worked to get them the best compensation possible.
  • Are respected by their peers. Aside from satisfied clients, the firm should be respected by their peers and even adversaries.
  • Will devote time to your case. A firm who takes on too many clients and lacks communication is a red flag. Ensure that your case is given the attention it deserves.
  • Are not afraid to go to trial. Although many cases settle before trial, you need a team of California employee attorneys who won’t back down until justice is served. Any firm who tries to settle your case quickly without exploring the options does not have your best interest in mind.
