  • Denial of FMLA: The Family and Medical Leave Act (29 U.S.C. 2601 et seq., FMLA) is a federal law. There is a California counterpart to the FMLA called the California Family Rights Act (CFRA, California Government Code Section 12945.2). While these laws have some differences, they generally overlap in purpose, generally providing substantial protection for a worker to receive unpaid leave for various reasons, including:
    • The birth/bonding of a child or adoption of a child by the employee
    • The recovery from a serious health condition requiring continuing treatment or inpatient care
    • The serious health condition of a spouse, child, or parent
  • Discrimination: Our firm handles discrimination in the workplace. If you are treated differently because of your race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, mental condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status – this would give rise to a discrimination claim.
  • Sexual Harassment: In the workplace, sexual harassment would include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. This can also include:
    • Forcing employee’s submission to such sexual conduct as a term or condition of employment (either explicitly or implicitly)
    • Using an employee’s willingness to participate in sexual activity as a basis for employment decisions
    • Conduct on the part of the employer that has the effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating a hostile or offensive working environment.
  • Wage and Hour / Labor Law: Everybody deserves to be paid fairly for the work that they perform each day, but there are times when employers use various methods to avoid paying fair wages, often in violation of California or federal labor laws. There are various ways that wage and hour or labor law violations occur, including misclassifying employees, not providing overtime wages, not paying minimum wage, refusing meal or rest breaks, refusing commission payments, not paying on time, and more.
  • Wrongful Termination: Though California is considered an “at-will” work state, employers cannot fire or layoff a person for an unlawful reason defined under California law. Some examples of wrongful termination could include termination because a person complained about wage fraud, termination due to discriminatory reasons, and termination due to complaints about sexual harassment.
