Overview of Pomona Employment Law Issues

Our team handles a variety of different employment law cases. We detail some common employment law claims below.

Workplace Injuries

California law requires certain employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover their workers should a workplace injury or illness occur. It does not matter whether someone is at fault for the injury.

The benefits pay for:

Workers’ compensation benefits continue until the employee can return to work. Workers’ compensation will not cover your injury if it does not happen at work. Thus, you will need as much evidence as possible to help establish that your injury occurred at work. Causes of workplace injuries and illnesses include:

An attorney can help you build a workers’ compensation claim or fight a wrongful denial of benefits.

Wage and Hour Disputes

California law outlines minimum requirements for wages, allotted breaks, and scheduled hours. California employers must comply with wage laws by paying employees at least the minimum wage for every hour they work.

Additionally, employers must pay overtime (time and a half) to non-exempt employees who work more than 8 hours a day or more than 40 hours a week. Sometimes, employers incorrectly label employees as independent contractors to avoid paying lawful wages.

Family and Medical Leave Violations


Federal and California state law grants qualified employees certain forms of family and medical leave under the following:

The FMLA and CFRA give employees the right to take up to 12 weeks unpaid leave to care for a seriously ill family member, yourself, or a newborn child. The employee must satisfy various requirements to qualify for CFRA and FMLA.

The PDL offers employees four months of leave when incapacitated from pregnancy or childbirth. California employers cannot retaliate against an employer who utilizes family or medical leave.

Contact a qualified employment attorney to discuss your case if your employer discriminates against you because you take medical or family leave.

Statute of Limitations on Employment Lawsuits in Pomona, CA

The statute of limitations is when you can file a lawsuit against your employer. This period varies based on the nature of the alleged violation and the circumstances surrounding the incident. You have three years to file an administrative complaint with the California Civil Rights Department (CRD) if an employer terminates you for invoking or exercising a right under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

The CRD can issue a right-to-sue letter extending the statutory period by another year. Employees terminated by their employers in violation of California’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) are subject to a three-year statute of limitations. The WARN Act requires certain employers to give employees at least 60 days’s notice before a mass layoff, plant closure, or significant relocation.

Breach of an oral contract has a two-year statute of limitations, and breach of a written contract has a four-year statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for unpaid wage claims is three years after non-payment occurs.
