If you feel that you are being discriminated, abused or sexual harassed the first step is to speak with an employment attorney in our network that can walk you through the complex array of laws governing employment law. There are a variety of technicalities that can prevent a good claim from recovering from a discriminatory or abusive action by one’s employer or supervisor. Our network of attorneys are dedicated to making sure that you do not fall into one of those technical traps that will prevent you from receiving some relief from the illegal actions of your employer.
Discrimination based on several types of personal characteristics, such as age (40 years of age and older), race, religion, national origin, medical condition, disability or gender are illegal under both federal (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act) and state law (Fair Employment and Housing Act). Federal and state regulations do not mandate that your employer treat you “fairly.” Yet, if you have been denied a job, a promotion or other work benefit due to an employer discriminating against you for one of the above personal characteristics, you have a legal recourse. One of our Los Angles employment lawyer will be your right hand in wining the case.
Employers do not have a right to treat their workers without regards to their well-being. An employer does not have the right to force you to work during a meal break, nor can they fail to provide you medical leave and/or maternity leave. If your employer or supervisor has treated you unfairly, please contact us at so that we may guide you through the process of getting relief for your unfair treatment.
Sexual harassment is illegal under both federal and California law. There are two types of sexual harassment: quid pro quo sexual advances by a supervisor (for example, sexual advances in return for a job or promotion) and a hostile work environment. The first type of sexual harassment generally involves a supervisor who uses threats of withholding a job or employment benefits for sex or other unwanted sexual advances by a supervisor. A hostile work environment includes unwanted visual conduct (leering, making obscene gestures), unwanted verbal conduct (derogatory comments, epithets, or obscene jokes) and unwanted physical conduct (touching, assault, or blocking movements).
If you do not file a complaint with one of either the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), you will be denied the right to file a lawsuit in your case.
Wage & Hour Claims
An employment lawyer in our network will help you with your claim based on your boss’s failure to pay your legally-entitled wage. Wage & hour claims occur when an employee has worked for a period of time but his/her employer is unwilling to pay him/her for the time that s/he worked. The most common wage & hour claims are based on failure to pay overtime wages or provide with lunch or other breaks mandated by law. Other claims include failure to pay for unused vacation time, unauthorized deductions from one’s paycheck, unpaid business expenses and failure to provide for a paystub. Finally, an employment lawyer may help you file a claim of retaliation if your have had a negative employment outcome for reporting any of the above claims.
These claims can be fraught with difficulties because if you do not follow the proper procedure you can lose out on your entire claim. An employment lawyer in Los Angeles in our network will know whether you need to file your claim first with the California Labor Commission or the Department of Fair Employment & Housing or whether you can go straight to the state civil court system. An employment lawyer in our network can help you properly file your claim. Finally, an employment lawyer in our network has the experience to lead you through the administrative agencies and hearings so you may present the best case for your claim.
