WHAT IS EMPLOYMENT LAW?

Employment law is an attorney practice area that covers the "rights, obligations, and responsibilities within an employer-employee relationship." An employment attorney upholds law topics that include wrongful termination, wages, discrimination, and workplace safety.

According to Findlaw.com, "Employment lawyers typically specialize in representing either employers or employees, but rarely both. Those who represent employees (like our firm) work directly with employees to file lawsuits against employers or negotiate settlements for a wide range of grievances."

Oftentimes an employee will need an employment attorney to file a claim against their employer or any other larger or smaller entities that are involved in their pursuit workplace justice. Lawyers for Justice, PC's employment lawyer team in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Orange County, and other California cities assist in overcoming the hurdles associated with an employment law claim.

Sometimes an employee does not feel comfortable going to the supervisor at their agency or company to file a complaint regarding their employment grievance. The next step is for them to seek an employment law attorney that can help remedy their needs and take legal action.

A California employee must take certain steps before filing a lawsuit against their employer, which an attorney can help with. An LFJ attorney helps an employee decide the most strategic course of action for their case.

WHAT LAWS PROTECT A CALIFORNIA EMPLOYEE?

There are federal and state laws protecting workers throughout California. Certain acts of discrimination and harassment over the years have spawned federal employment laws, which are applicable to everyone country-wide. However, states can also pass their own laws regarding employment laws. The following are several federal laws protecting you as an employee in Los Angeles:

- Wage and hour laws

- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

- Age Discrimination (ADEA)

- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

There are also many statewide employment laws and regulations that deal with pay, hours, legal holidays, and civil rights laws. These include the California Labor Code, California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). It’s important to retain a California employment lawyer to help navigate the myriad laws that might apply in your specific employee case so you can be aware of your legal rights as state and federal employee.

WHAT DOES A CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT LAWYER DO?

California's employment laws were enacted so that employees would be protected from mistreatment from employers - and so that if any mistreatment occurs, employers are bear the responsibility. A California employment law attorney seeks to enforce those laws and the employees that they protect.

California employment law prohibits discrimination against a protected class in the workplace, as well as prohibits firing employees for unjust cause (ie: a wrongful termination case). The laws that exist provide a strong foundation for which employment lawyers can build a case against bully bosses.

For example, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, makes discrimination illegal against employees and potential employees that belong to a certain class, such as gender, race, sex, age, disability, pregnancy, and more.

Among the many reasons an employee comes to LFJ is because they haven't received overtime pay. The employment attorney team at our firm has a specialty in building wage and hour class actions to ensure employees who haven't been paid all the wages they've earned are compensated fairly. LFJ stands up to the employer who tries to keep their employee's wages by not paying them or misclassifying their work status to avoid paying their owed wages.

It’s important to discuss each specific case with an experienced California employment lawyer to see which options are available and if our attorneys can help.
