Torrance Employment Law Litigation Attorneys
Our practice areas for clients looking for a Torrance employment lawyer include:
Disability disputes. Having a disability can make finding a job more difficult. But discrimination based on your disability can make the search impossible. Employment discrimination based on disability is often illegal. You have rights to a level playing field when it comes to finding employment and being treated fairly in a workplace environment.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, among others laws and regulations, prohibit discrimination against qualified workers with disabilities, including hiring and firing, compensation, promotions and demotions, and all other aspects of employment.
If you believe you have suffered discrimination related to a disability, contact us to learn more about how you can protect your rights.
Family & medical leave. When employers fail to provide legally-required leaves of absence, including medical leave and leave required to look after family members, it can result in intense litigation. You have rights in those situations and others related to family and medical leave, we can help you defend them and hold your employer liable to assume their full obligations under the law.
Our Torrance lawyers aggressively defend our clients’ rights in matters regarding medical and family leave issues, including support for employees defending their rights provided by the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Contact us and we’ll help you secure the compensation and entitlements you deserve under the law.
Unpaid wages. California and federal laws require that employers properly and adequately compensate employees for work performed, including appropriate breaks, meal times, and overtime. Overtime compensation is an area of routine abuse for regular employees, including attempts to misclassify workers as exempt, management staff or independent contractors.
If you believe you are the victim of unpaid or unfair wages, contact us and we can help you investigate the facts and ensure you receive the full compensation you’ve rightfully earned.
Sexual harassment. Workplace sexual harassment includes a spectrum of behavior and incidents, including:
- Unwanted advances
- Inappropriate conversation or humor
- Suggestive teasing
- Sexual touching
- Making conditions of employment, including promotion, subject to performing a sexual act
If you believe you have a claim for sexual harassment at work, contact us immediately. Our highly competent Torrance sexual harassment lawyers can advise you how to proceed to best preserve your claims and fully investigate the circumstances of your complaint.
Discrimination. Employers have a legal obligation to not discriminate based on race, gender, age, faith, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or other factors. Our employment law attorneys are experienced in the full range of relevant laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). You have the right to enjoy a workplace free from discrimination. Contact us to learn more about your recourse in matters involving employment discrimination.
Wrongful termination. Employers may retaliate against employees who insist on exercising their full range of workplace rights.
