Employment Law Attorney in Woodland Hills
Protect Your Rights as an Employee
California has laws in place to protect employees and their rights. Unfortunately, not all employers abide by these regulations. If you have been mistreated in the workplace or denied certain rights, you should seek the guidance and representation of a Woodland Hills employment lawyer.
Rodich Law can help you file a claim and provide aggressive representation as you seek justice.
Discrimination & Harassment
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act of 1959 forbids employers from discriminating their employees based on gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, ethnicity, or religion.
If your employer or another employee at your workplace has treated you unfairly based on any of the aforementioned qualities, you can file a discrimination claim with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH).
A common form of discrimination might be wrongfully terminating your employment at the company based on your gender, age, disability, etc. Employers are required by law to make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities, and are not permitted to fire someone on that basis.
The Fair Employment and Housing Act also outlines statues regarding harassment, including sexual harassment in the workplace. If someone at your workplace is treating you in an inappropriate manner in such a way that your work environment has become hostile for you, you can file a sexual harassment claim with the EEOC or DFEH.
Wage and Hour Claims
The California Labor Code outlines regulations for how an employer must pay their employees and provide proper meal and rest breaks.
For example, a company may not pay his or her employees below minimum wage, and they must ensure employees are not overworked through being denied breaks or by being forced to work overtime without pay. If you are being paid unfairly, you can being a dispute by filing a wage and hour claim.
