Redondo Employment Law FAQ

Have you experienced discrimination, sexual harassment, unpaid wages, or other problems in your workplace? Below are several frequently asked questions about employment law and employment legal cases in California.

They may help you understand more about your situation. To learn more, contact us to talk with our experienced local Redondo Beach employment lawyers.

Q. What is unlawful discrimination in the workplace?

Both California and federal employment discrimination laws are designed to protect employees and job applicants. Workplace discrimination is defined as treating a person less favorably than others based on any of the following attributes:

  • Race,
  • Gender,
  • Age,
  • Religious faith,
  • Physical or mental disability,
  • Medical condition,
  • Pregnancy,
  • Sexual orientation, or
  • Certain other individual factors.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), among others laws and regulations, are the foundation of legal protections against job discrimination in California.

If you have followed internal workplace policies to report discrimination and are still facing difficulties, you should consult with Work Lawyers PC to review your situation.

Q. What is sexual harassment in the workplace?

Sexual harassment describes a spectrum of behaviors and incidents, including:

  • Unwanted advances;
  • Inappropriate conversation or humor;
  • Suggestive teasing;
  • Sexual touching; or
  • Making conditions of employment, including promotion, subject to performing a sexual act.

Sexual harassment is a serious and unfortunately pervasive problem in the workplace. If you are the victim of sexual harassment from your Redondo Beach employer or coworkers, contact our team for qualified legal help.

Q. Does a disability automatically disqualify a worker for employment?

No. A person who is qualified and capable of performing the essential functions of a job (even if they need an accommodation) is often protected against discriminated because of their disability. Disabled persons enjoy the same rights and protections as other workers, whether in the workplace or when being considered for employment.

Q. When is an employee entitled to medical or family leave from work?

The California Family Rights Act and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (among others) grant rights to workers when family or medical leave is desired. Employees who are injured or ill often have a right to sick leave, as well as leave to care for a sick or injured family member.

Most commonly, workers with a newborn or newly-adopted child may have a right to take maternity leave or paternity leave. Other regulations and laws may apply based on the exact circumstances of the leave requested or the situation.

If you feel you are being pressured to work despite eligibility for leave, or denied your rights to family leave or medical leave, contact Work Lawyers PC to review your case.

Q. What are the most common types of unpaid wages claims?

Unpaid wage claims can arise in several different ways. Employers commonly misclassify workers as “exempt” or as “independent contractors” to avoid paying overtime, providing rest breaks, or to force employees to work off the clock. Likewise, employers often make illegal deductions from their workers’ paycheck.

All of these instances are more common than most people realize and it’s easy to become a victim of wage theft, late wages, or unpaid wages. If you suspect your employer is not paying wages you have earned, in full and on time, contact Work Lawyers PC. We can review the facts of your situation and help you if we decide to take your case.
