Helping You Through a Wage & Hour Dispute
Unfortunately, disputes involving wages and hours worked are a common occurrence for many California employees. If you are currently engaged in a dispute pertaining to your income and/or work schedule, you need experienced, reliable legal representation as soon as possible.
A Hostile Work Environment is Unhealthy
Though there are many ways in which a workplace could be perceived as hostile, the legal definition is fairly stringent. Comments or conduct must be “severe and pervasive” and in regards to a protected class in order to qualify as legally actionable. We will listen to your story and advise if we think your case is strong enough to move forward.
Some employees are fired or threatened with termination when they report health and safety violations to authorities. Fortunately, these actions are against the law in the state of California. Whistleblowers in these situations can claim compensation for lost wages and psychological and/or emotional distress. In some cases, whistleblowers can even obtain punitive damages.
Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, it is unlawful for an employer to demote, suspend, terminate or harass any employee simply because that employee has engaged in protected activities. Common examples of protected activities include protesting, complaining about, resisting or otherwise “opposing” discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, sex, disability, national origin, age or religion.

In California, every term of a severance agreement is negotiable. If you are unsure as to whether or not you should sign a severance agreement, consult with an experienced labor law attorney as quickly as possible.
