Protecting Employees in All Types of Employment Law Cases
There are multiple laws governing the employer-employee relationship, workplace misconduct, and conditions in the work environment. Our lawyers are able to pursue all legal remedies available for such cases as:
Discrimination and Harassment: It is unlawful for employers to take adverse action against employees or harass them on account of their race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, disability, and other characteristics that are protected by law. Employers are also prohibited from treating workers differently because of their participation in protected activities. As such, you could have a claim against your employer for:
- Harassment on the basis of sex or other grounds that create a hostile work environment or result in a quid pro quo situation;
- Wrongful termination;
- Unlawful retaliation; and,
- Many others.
Workplace Safety: Various state and federal laws require employers to make repairs, conduct inspections, and otherwise maintain a safe workplace. Violations can result in severe penalties, but you may also have grounds to take legal action as an employee.
Employee Privacy & Rights: Your right to privacy extends into the work environment, so there are restrictions on employers regarding invasion of privacy and intrusion to your private affairs.
Wage and Hour Claims: Minimum wage and overtime are the most common disputes in this category, but medical and family leave issues also tie into these claims.
Your Remedies Under California Employment Laws
Your options depend on the type of employer grievance and many other factors. In many cases, you raise employment-related misconduct by failing a claim with the DFEH, though you may qualify to go directly to court through a Right-to-Sue process. Our lawyers at the Obagi Law Group, P.C. will help you navigate the legal process, through which you may be able to recover compensation or obtain equitable relief.
