Southern California Employment Law Attorneys
Serving Clients throughout the Southern California Region
Your job is one of the most important things in your life. It provides you the means to pay your mortgage or your rent as well as supporting your family. Your job may also be an important part of your personal identity. It may be a source of pride and a place where you can demonstrate your skills, competence, education, and training. Because our jobs are so important to us, the federal government and the state of California have passed laws to protect people from issues such as harassment or discrimination while we are at work.
If you have been subjected to sexual harassment, discrimination, or any other unfair practice or action in the workplace, you can seek legal recourse. Our firm is here to help. By consulting with a Southern California employment lawyer at the firm, you can receive a review and evaluation of your particular situation. We have been representing clients in these matters since 1925 and have the extensive experience, knowledge, and skills to help you seek justice.
Your Employee Rights under Law
In California, your employee rights are secured by the Fair Employment and Housing Act. This law protects you from adverse actions by your employer, including:
Other statutes, such as California's Labor Code Private Attorney General Act ("PAGA"), protect you rights to make
wage and hour claims, such as for employers' failure to pay overtime or commissions
California Fair Employment and Housing Act
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act protects you from unfair actions at work. It covers many of the same types of workplace issues addressed by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Equal Pay Act, and the Rehabilitation Act, which are enforced by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. California's Fair Employment and Housing Act often provides more protection to employees than Title VII.
