Can I Sue My Employer?
If you’ve been mistreated at work, you may be asking yourself: “Can I sue my employer?”
There are laws protecting workers from unfair treatment at work that allow them to hold their employer accountable. At Lawyers for Justice, PC, that’s exactly what our employment law attorneys help our clients do. We help them scratch beneath the surface, investigate their claims, and present their strongest case.
Best of all, we help each client on a contingency basis, which means they pay nothing to us up-front; this can be a rare find when seeking out employment law attorneys, but our firm prides itself on its service, confidence, and the techniques we use to go above and beyond for the Californians we serve.
In short, the answer to the question of “can I sue my employer?” is yes.
Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, it’s against the law for employers to discriminate against a protected class of employees and even those who are applying for jobs at a company. That discrimination includes unfair treatment based upon race, age (40 and over), religious creed, mental disability, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, color, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, gender expression, sex, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or military and even veteran status.
Also, if your employer is not paying your wages, not allowing you to take meal or rest breaks, or us neglecting to pay you overtime wages, you can also bring about a lawsuit. The employment law attorneys at Lawyers for Justice, PC have extensive knowledge in wage and hour cases, making those types of cases ones that we practice very often.
Furthermore, an employment law attorney can also help you in suing your employer if the employer has harassed you or another professional colleague. Perhaps there was sexual harassment, bullying behavior, or another type of inappropriate workplace conduct that made workers at the company uncomfortable or feel unsafe? Our employment law attorneys strive to make sure that if our clients do not feel safe in the workplace, we will get them what they deserve from those who painfully harassed them.
Victims of workplace discrimination, harassment, or mistreatment can bring a lawsuit against the employer. Lawyers for Justice, PC’s employment law attorneys can help.
