The Law Is on Your Side

You might feel like you don’t have much power at work, but you have several rights that your employer must respect. These include rights against discrimination, unsafe work environments, unlawful firings, and receipt of proper pay. Laws protecting these rights include:

If your employer does not comply with state, federal, or local employment laws, it could be liable to you for damages and other legal relief, such as job reinstatement and policy changes at work.

How We Can Help You

We know the evidence you need to collect and the procedural steps you must take to protect your rights, and we can handle these tasks for you. We bring in top settlements but are also unafraid to take cases to trial when necessary.

Workplace Discrimination

Several elements of who you are cannot be the basis for punishment or unequal treatment at work. Under FEHA and Title VII, an employer cannot make adverse decisions against an employee for any of the following reasons:

Your boss cannot fire you, pay you less, harass you, demote you, or refuse you professional advancement for the above reasons.

Workplace Injuries

Repetitive stress and traumatic events in the workplace can cause employees significant harm. California’s workers’ compensation laws require employers to carry insurance to cover wage replacement and health care for employees who get hurt at work.

Unfortunately, one of the state’s most significant employment issues is the number of employers that unlawfully operate without workers’ compensation coverage. Our attorneys can help ensure that your employer is held responsible for any failures to carry coverage and that your employer pays for care and wage loss after you suffer a work injury.

Wage and Hour Violations

There are many reasons why employees go to work day after day: purpose, routine, passion, and need. Employees also go to work to get paid and must be paid fairly. An employer must honor wage agreements and must pay its non-exempt employees at least minimum wage and increased wages for overtime.

Minimum Wage and Overtime

The minimum wage in California is $16 per hour, but employees in the Los Angeles area might be entitled to up to $16.90 per hour. Employees entitled to minimum wage must also receive 1.5 to 2 times their regular pay rate if they work more than 40 hours a week or 8 hours a day. An employer that does not comply with these rules is liable to each harmed employee for unpaid wages and possibly for penalties. You can count on us to recover the money you worked for.

Wage Statements

How do you know if you received adequate compensation for your labor? You can tell by studying wage statements. California law requires employers to regularly provide you with itemized wage statements that reflect the hours you worked, the rates paid, and deductions made from your pay during each pay period.

Failure to provide these statements has recently been the second most common violation among employers in California. If your employer has committed this violation, it owes you damages and attorney’s fees, and it could owe you an additional $100 in penalties for each subsequent violation.

We can maximize your damages in a wage and hour claim and send a strong message to your employer about its obligations to engage in fair and transparent pay practices.
