San Jose Employee Rights Attorney
Employers Must Be Held Accountable for Workplace Violations
Far too often employees are mistreated by the very companies for which they work. When that happens, it is critical to protect your rights and ensure businesses are held accountable for the way they treat their workers.
It may seem like employers hold all of the cards in disputes with employees. They control paychecks and can seemingly fire a disgruntled worker at any time.
But employees must remember that there are specific laws that protect their rights. When employers violate those rights, a lawyer can ensure they are held accountable.
Were you Discriminated Against at Work?
Workplace discrimination is illegal in California. If you were harassed or otherwise mistreated at work because of your age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or many other characteristics, then you have legal options. An employment law attorney can listen to your situation and explain what choices you have to hold your employer accountable and recover for losses sustained as a result of the discrimination.
If you were fired from your job unlawfully, then you may be able to recover damages. Unlawful terminations include those that were based on discrimination, refusal to perform illegal activities, or in retaliation for speaking up about unlawful company practices. At other times, employers may violate an employment contract, opening the door for legal accountability.
Did your employer violate labor laws?
Every day different companies break laws that are in place to protect employees. This includes not giving adequate breaks, failing to provide overtime pay, maintaining unsafe working conditions and many other practices. In all of these instances, the law allows employees to pursue justice via the civil law.
