How an Employment Law Attorney Can Help You
One of the keys to settlement employment law cases is to act swiftly. A good employment law attorney will have the necessary skills and knowledge of the law to resolve situations like these easily. Our legal team can represent employees across California against businesses or employers who have wronged them. We can work on labor disputes regarding discrimination or harassment. If you believe you have suffered unlawful discrimination, it’s important to contact a labor law lawyer to speak on your behalf.
The most common type of employment law case in California is a wrongful termination lawsuit. This situation happens when a business fires an employee for a reason that violates public policy or signed contracts. This means that the employees were fired because of their race, religion, political affiliation or for taking time off for voting, jury duty or even pregnancy. Our attorney will gather evidence for your case and provide legal counsel when you need it most.
It’s important to hire an employment law attorney immediately as there is a statute of limitations associated with wrongful termination lawsuits in California that has different deadlines depending on the reasoning for firing. For instance, if because of public policy, you have two years after the firing, while those terminated because of discrimination or harassment have to file within 1 year of the termination under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act.
Discrimination in California
California law prohibits any business from taking action against an employee because of any of the following things: religion, age (over 40), race, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, gender, marital status, sexual orientation and pregnancy or childbirth. An employer may not also discriminate against someone because of their partner or spouse, even if the partner or spouse possesses any of the above attributes. An employment law attorney can investigate your situation and ensure that this doesn’t happen to you.
