From administrative complaints to civil trials and everything in-between, Wilshire Law Firm knows how to tilt the legal scales in YOUR favor. Our California labor and employment attorneys handle the following employment cases for Wilshire Law Firm:
- Wrongful Termination—Even at-will employers are required to adhere to all applicable laws and public policy when hiring and firing employees. California employees are protected from being fired based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is legally protected from discrimination. Employees who engage in whistleblowing are similarly protected and may not be terminated for bringing forward a claim of unlawful or unethical conduct.
- Workplace Retaliation—Retaliation occurs when an employee engages in a legally protected act and suffers an adverse employment action as a result. Employees are protected from termination (including wrongful constructive termination), demotion, or any other adverse action under Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) statutes passed by the federal government, along with the State of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
- Workplace Harassment—California’s FEHA gives workers the right to a workplace free of verbal, physical, sexual, and other abusive behaviors, including quid pro quo and hostile work environment harassment. Workplace conduct is legally considered harassment when it is: offensive; unwelcome; severe; creates an intimidating or hostile work environment.
- Workplace Discrimination—Laws and statutes such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protect employees from workplace discrimination on the basis of sex, race, national origin, religion, and many other protected statuses. Common acts of workplace discrimination include denying pay raises, promotions, or benefits to certain protected statuses, as well as paying employees with similar qualifications different salaries based on a protected status.
- Unpaid Wages—Federal and state laws and regulations require employers to pay employees for their work, but some businesses are nevertheless guilty of withholding the money that employees have earned. Using tactics like employee misclassification, rest and meal break violations, and bonus pay adjustments, employers will try to avoid their wage and hour obligations, a violation that is often remedied through a class action lawsuit.
- Leave of Absence—When a California worker requires time off to attend to serious family matters or medical concerns, federal and California law requires employers to grant the time off from work without the employee suffering an adverse employment action as a result. Pregnancy, disability, medical, military, workers compensation, and even leave for jury duty are all various forms of protected leaves of absence.
