Are You Facing Workplace Discrimination Or Labor Violations?
If you are struggling to resolve an issue at work, it can be difficult to know where to start. Labor-related disputes can pose some of the most challenging situations because of the way they directly affect your livelihood. Employment rights law is complicated. For any given industry, there are particular standards that your employer is required to meet in order to be compliant with state and federal labor laws. What’s more, these issues are particularly frustrating in that they often center around circumstances having to do with your safety, your health, and your time. So what are your options when your workplace becomes the source of a legal issue?
The answer is simple – contact an employment rights lawyer who can help you resolve the matter as soon as possible.
California State And Federal Laws Protect Your Rights
California workers’ rights are supported by local and federal laws. This means that you are legally protected from employer misconduct, discrimination, payment disputes, and more. Among other protections, workers in California have the right to:
- A workplace that is free from conditions that could cause illness or injury.
- Fair wages that are paid in a timely manner.
- A working environment that does not condone, encourage, or attempt to cover up harassment or discrimination of any kind.
- File a complaint against their employer or coworker(s) without fear of retaliation.
- Protection under wage and hour laws that require non-exempt employees to be provided with overtime pay and work breaks.
While the laws regarding these matters are clear, the situations that they apply to are often far from cut-and-dry. With many nuances and factors that are specific to each case, it’s critical that you have an expert labor attorney on your side.
