The following pages provide more information about employment law and your rights in the workplace:
- Anatomy of an employment law case: If this is the first time you have had an issue with your employer, you are probably unaware of the steps you need to take to assert your rights. That inexperience can be costly.
- Do I need an employment law attorney: While you can file many employment law claims with an administrative agency such as the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the Department of Industrial Relations or the EEOC, your claim may take many months to resolve and your recovery is likely to be small without an attorney’s help. More likely, you will not be able to obtain a favorable resolution and your case will be so old by the time it is out of the administrative agency, no attorney will touch it.
- Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment is different from discrimination based on sex in that it involves offensive touching or comments. We handle all types of sexual harassment cases (coworker, customer, and supervisor).
- Leaves of absence: Many California employers either do not understand the law or violate it willfully when it comes to disability and other types of leave. There are multiple different rules on leave of absence. Speak to an attorney about which leave you may qualify for. The number of employees at your company, your medical condition and length of employment may matter. Call 1-877-569-5507
- Family and Medical Leave Act claims: If your employer either does not allow you to take family or medical leave, or takes adverse actions against you upon return, you may be entitled to compensation. Speak to an attorney about which leave you may qualify for. The number of employees at your company, your medical condition and length of employment may matter.
- California Family Rights Act claims: The Family Rights Act is a California law that provides similar protection to the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Speak to an attorney about which leave you may qualify for. The number of employees at your company, your medical condition and length of employment may matter.
- Employment fraud: With the bad economy, more employers are engaging in employment fraud such as advertising jobs that do not exist or defrauding a third party in order to cut corners.
- Whistleblower claims: Not all whistleblowers are protected. Before you blow the whistle on your employer, talk to an attorney.
- Employer retaliation claims: If your employer retaliates against your for exercising your rights in the workplace, you can file a claim for compensation.
