Wages & Overtime

Wage and Hour laws protect your rights to compensation and receiving full pay for your time worked. You may be entitled compensation for overtime, preparation, tips, training, travel, waiting, and for misclassification or improper exemptions.

Discrimination

If you have experienced mistreatment and/or discrimination due to your association with a particular group or characteristic (race, origin, sex, gender, LGBTQ+, age, political beliefs, religion, disability, medical condition, family/martial status, etc.) you may be protected by federal discrimination laws.

Harassment and Hostile Work Environment

An inappropriate act, behavior, or comment affecting your performance can be an actionable case. If you have experienced an act, comment, joke, or statement without your consent whether visual, verbal, or physical, your rights may have been violated.

Wrongful Termination

Although generally employment in California is "at-will", meaning an employer has broad discretion to terminate an employee. You may find your termination was unrelated to your work performance, and/or for an unlawful reason which violates California law and public policy.

Retaliation and Whistleblowing

Reporting or disclosing information about violations or wrongdoings by your employer to an entity or person (often called "whistleblowing"), may lead to unlawful retaliation by your employer. It is unlawful for your employer to discipline, terminate, deny opportunities, or unlawfully retaliate against you.

Meal and Rest Breaks

In California, non-exempt employees are entitled to unpaid meal breaks and paid rest breaks after working a fixed number of hours in a day. In general, it is unlawful for an employer to ask you to continue working or stay "on-call" during your break.

Medical, Family, and/or Pregnancy Leave

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and/or California Family Rights Act, eligible employees may be entitled to unpaid leave with protections against job termination and/or discrimination.

Disability Rights & Accommodations

Employees with impairments that limit "major life activities" are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act.

Employment Contracts

An employment contract may be implied, oral, or written. An evaluation of the terms and/or conditions of an employment contract can help determine if a breach of contract or fraud has occured. Your employer may have violated your contractual rights during your employment and/or termination.

Severance Agreement

Your employment termination may require specified terms and conditions, often drafted in an agreement known as "severance agreement". It is crucial to understand your rights and the implications of signing a severance agreement.
