Unpaid Wages

California law requires that employers provide their employees with wages for all hours worked, overtime pay, meal and rest breaks, waiting time penalties, and accurate wage statements. If you believe that your employer is short-changing you, or taking wages from your hard earned hours, please contact us to enforce your rights and to get you paid.

Race Discrimination

Discrimination based on race and national origin are strictly prohibited in each and every aspect of the workplace, including hiring, compensation, training, discipline, promoting, and firing under both federal and state laws. National origin discrimination is based on physical characteristics that is often times related to that particular race, including, hair color, and skin color. If you feel like you’ve been discriminated because of your race, call us today and learn your rights.

Gender Discrimination

We fight for gender equality in the workplace. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the California Constitution, as well as California Fair Employment and Housing Act all prohibit gender discrimination at work. Gender discrimination occurs when an employee is treated unfairly based on his or her gender, with respect to discharge, promotion, hiring, or any mistreatment based on gender. We can help you understand and enforce your rights.

Disability Discrimination

 

Disability discrimination can often be found where an employer discharges, fails to promote, fails to hire, or in any way unfairly mistreats an employee because of a physical or mental disability, so long as that employee is able to perform his or her duties. The law also requires employers to provide and make reasonable accommodations for employees who are disabled so that they could perform their job duties. If you have been victim to an employer’s refusal to provide reasonable accommodations for your disability, we will explain your rights and enforce them through the necessary protections afforded to you by law.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is unwanted sexual advances, or visual, verbal or physical conduct that is sexual in nature. Sexual harassment is broad and covers such things as unwanted sexual propositions, offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors, making or threatening retaliation after refusing sexual advances/propositions, providing a negative response to sexual advances, making sexual gestures, displaying suggestive objects or pictures that is sexual in nature, verbally making derogatory comments, and physical touching, assault, or blocking movements. Sexual harassment can also occur between the same sex. If you have been sexually harassed, call us today to stop the abuse.

Retaliation and Whistleblower

Retaliation can come in various forms, including termination of employment, demotions, denial of promotions, denial of raises or pay increases, negative performance reviews, unfair write ups, decreased work hours, pay cut, less hourly wages, public embarrassment, ridicule, or harassment. Whistleblower is another type of retaliation where an employer retaliates against an employee for either reporting illegal activities or refusing to participate in illegal activities committed by the company. In either case, if you were subject to retaliation (including termination) because you blew the whistle on the company, call us today to learn your rights and options.
