Employee Rights: We understand that losing your job can be distressing, but losing your job for the wrong reasons can be devastating. We can help you get justice. We care. We work relentlessly to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
All employees have basic rights arising from both state and federal laws. Some of these rights include: the right not to be subjected to discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, skin color, gender, pregnancy, religious beliefs, disability, age, and in some places, marital status or sexual orientation; the right to a workplace free of harassment; the right to be paid at least the minimum wage as provided by federal or state law; the right to overtime wages as provided by federal or state law; the right to a safe workplace and the right to take leave to care for a personal or family member’s serious illness, or following the birth or adoption of a child.

Most people consider their job a significant part of their identity. Losing a job can be a blow to one’s self-esteem and cause feelings of loss of identity. Losing a job because of an illegal reason such as (i) unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation, (ii) a disability or in retaliation for asking the employer to accommodate your disability, or (iii) your age, can be physically and emotionally debilitating. If you have lost your job for any unlawful reason, you may have some recourse.
If your employer has fired you or forced you out of your job, you may have many questions about your rights and your future that need answers immediately. What can you do? What will you do? What will you and your family do for income? Don’t trust your future and the future of your family to a lawyer who dabbles in employment law. As experienced Los Angeles Labor and Employment Attorneys, we can provide the skilled legal guidance that will make the essential difference in your case.
