What are the Labor Laws in California?
In California, an employer is prohibited from discriminating and retaliating against employees in various protected classes (e.g., race, nationality, gender, age, religion, etc.). Additionally, employers are required to provide equal pay, allow discussions about wages, allow employees to access their personal files, provide pregnancy accommodations, and protect whistleblowers.
Employees in California are entitled to specific leaves or time off, such as paid sick leave, paid family leave, paid medical leave, emergency responder leave, and domestic violence leave. There are also state laws related to employee pay and benefits, including health care and disability insurance.
If any of your employment rights in California have been violated, do not hesitate to reach out to Valiant Law to let us protect your rights and best interests. Our employment and labor law attorneys in California can help you obtain the most favorable outcome in your case.
You Are Protected from Retaliation
Discrimination and harassment are not the only things that you should be wary of in the workplace. Aside from discrimination, employees are protected by federal and California laws from all forms of retaliation by their employers.
What this means is that if you file a claim against your employer for harassment or discrimination, this cannot be used by your employer as a ground to suspend you, demote you, or terminate you from work. Also, if you file a complaint or report an illegal act being performed by your employer, California laws protect you from retaliation from your employer. Unless your employer has a valid reason to penalize you, you cannot be unilaterally or unjustly be reprimanded at work.
If you are serious about claiming damages against your employer, you should contact Valiant Law and speak with our proven employment law attorney in California. Our team has decades of successful experience in obtaining the maximum compensation every employee victim deserves, from front pay, back pay, unpaid overtime, unpaid benefits and commissions, compensation for pain and suffering, and even punitive damages.
