PALMDALE has undergone significant changes since the 1980s when it was an isolated desert suburb where workers made long commutes into the San Fernando Valley, or the Los Angeles basin. PALMDALE has grown into different neighborhoods, multiple zip codes (93536, 93543, 93550–93553, 93590–93592, 93597–93599), and is one the 25 fastest growing cities in the United States. Aerospace is the most important industry in Palmdale, and there is no better employee law firm to handle aerospace cases than our firm.
In the early 1990s firm founder and employment lawyer, Karl Gerber, began his career in wrongful termination cases representing aerospace whistleblowers, and aerospace workers subjected to discriminatory reductions in force (RIFs) on the basis of their age, or protected medical condition. Our employment lawyers are well equipped to standup to Northrop’s lawyers, or any on base defense contractor. We also have particular expertise in representing contractors at military bases whether the employment case is for prevailing wages, or any aspect of labor law.
Our Palmdale Employment Lawyers have handled numerous Palmdale Employment Law cases including:
Our PALMDALE employment lawyers, through the negotiations, depositions, strategies, and court wins of firm head, Karl Gerber, have obtained many settlements of more than $100,000 for Palmdale women who were sexually harassed at work.
Our PALMDALE Sexual Harassment Lawyers handle sexual harassment cases in which supervisors and owners engage in the sexual harassment as well as sexual harassment by a coworker. If sexual harassment was perpetrated by a coworker, the employee must prove a supervisor or manager knew of the sexual harassment and failed to act, additional sexual harassment occurred after an initial complaint, or a previous employee earlier complained about the sexual harassment. Employers are strictly liable for the sexual harassment of supervisors and higher level employees regardless of whether there was notice to the employer of sexual harassment before it happened. We also handle sexual harassment cases if the victim of sexual harassment has their job terminated as a result of complaining about sexual harassment, or refusing to go along with the sexual harassment.
Firm founder, Karl Gerber, has been quoted as an expert on sexual harassment by the main Los Angeles legal news outlet, The Daily Journal. He has handled more than 400 sexual harassment cases, and has an exceptional passion for representing women who are the victims of sexual harassment.
Many discrimination cases involve employers who refuse to properly grant medical leaves of absence. Medical leaves of absence may be legally available due to Family Medical Leave Act Rights, Pregnancy, or a Disability. Medical leaves of absence are also legally appropriate in the event of cancer, or HIV. Other employment discrimination cases involve employment decisions made for discriminatory reasons such as race, or sex. We have handled cases involving virtually every type of employment discrimination.
15% of PALMDALE ‘s residents are Black and 55% are Hispanic. Because 60% of Palmdale’s population belongs to these two minority populations, it is natural although unfortunate that many Palmdale residents are the victims of national origin or race discrimination. Our employment law firm has handled many cases in which national origin or race discrimination happened. We have also handled many workplace harassment lawsuits in which national origin or race was the motivation for the on the job harassment.
