Our employment law services in Claremont include assistance with:

  • Wage and Overtime Disputes. All employees must be appropriately compensated for all hours worked. This means that non-exempt employees must be paid overtime when applicable, no matter what their employer says. Your employer also cannot violate meal and break rules, refuse to reimburse you for work-related expenses, pay you late, or misclassify you as an exempt employee or independent contractor.  Our team is prepared to handle all types of wage overtime claims.
  • Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (PAGA). PAGA was introduced in an effort to help workers pursue claims against their employers when labor enforcement agencies are unable or unwilling to do so. When filing a PAGA claim, a worker files a complaint on behalf of the California government. PAGA claims are exempt from forced arbitration requirements contained in many employment agreements, but you must meet certain eligibility criteria to pursue this option. We can review your circumstances and advise whether this approach is right for you. 
  • Whistleblower Protection. You always have the legally protected right to report unlawful activity (or any activity you reasonably believe to be illegal) that occurs in your workplace. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for speaking up, meaning you cannot be fired, demoted, or treated adversely because you “blew the whistle.” Whistleblower protections also apply if you refuse to participate in what you believe to be unlawful activity. Our firm can help you fight acts of retaliation. We also assist with qui tam lawsuits in applicable scenarios. 
  • Sexual Harassment. Sexual harassment is considered a form of discrimination and can take several forms, including quid pro quos, hostile work environments, and unwelcome questions or advances. Sexual harassment can occur between members of any sex. We can help you seek relief and justice if you experience any type of sexual harassment.
  • Wrongful Termination. An employer cannot fire an employee on discriminatory or retaliatory grounds. They also cannot dismiss an employee if doing so violates their employment agreement, which may include provisions that specify an employee can only be terminated under certain conditions. Some employers will go to great lengths to conceal the true reason they are terminating someone, but we understand how to establish wrongdoing and strategically pursue these claims.
  • Discrimination. California employers cannot discriminate on the basis of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. This means you cannot be fired, retaliated against, or otherwise treated unfavorably because of a protected characteristic. If you believe you are the victim of any type of workplace discrimination, we can help you explore your legal options.
