Los Angeles Employment Disputes Attorney
Employment Law Disputes
As an employee in California, you have some of the strongest protections and rights in the country against mistreatment by your employer under both state and federal law. Whether you are a current employee, a job applicant, or an employee released by your employer under improper circumstances, you may have the ability to bring an action against the offending employer to recover monetary damages and potentially restore you to your rightful position. At The Kaufman Law Firm, we stand up for employees and applicants who have been mistreated in violation of state and/or federal law to win the justice they deserve.
State and federal law provides that workers and those applying for jobs cannot be discriminated against on the basis of classifications such as gender, race, and numerous other improper classifications. By bringing an employment discrimination claim, you can prevent others from suffering the same discriminatory effects in the marketplace while recovering the damages you are owed. Contact us as soon as possible if you feel you have been unfairly passed over, terminated, demoted, or otherwise improperly treated at work based on the following classifications:
- Race, national origin, and citizenship status
- Sexual orientation and gender identity
- Pregnancy status
- Disability status
- Sexual Harassment
You are entitled to be free from sexual harassment in the workplace, whether it is committed by supervisors or by co-workers with your employer’s knowledge. Sexual harassment can come in many forms, and California law provides protections from all types of harassment as well as for retaliation from your employer or others for taking actions to report and/or stop the harassment. Contact us today for assistance if you have had to endure sexual harassment in any of the following forms:
- Unwanted sexual advances
- Degrading and demeaning comments
- Hostile work environment
- Retaliation for complaints about harassment
Wage and Hour Claims
Workers in California are entitled to all wage and hour protections under California and federal law. California state law provides numerous protections for workers far in excess of what is provided by federal law, including the guarantee of equal pay when you are doing substantially the same work as a person of another gender, race, or religion (subject to allowances for differences in experience, education, seniority, etc.). Workers must also be provided all applicable breaks, minimum wages, and overtime pay. Contact us if you believe you have been unfairly denied:
- Overtime pay
- Minimum wage
- Expense reimbursement
- Fair pay on the basis of gender, race, or religion
Employment Contract Violations
If you have an employment contract with your employer, you are entitled to all of the additional protections provided in your contract. We will work with you to analyze the contract, determine whether your employer has violated your rights under the contract, and bring appropriate action to remedy the situation.
