Asserting The Rights Of California Employees In Employment Law Claims
The unique problems of employment litigation we find in employment situations are as different as the kinds of things people do for a living. What we find, however, is that problems can often be classified according to their severity and what is at stake. For example, problems may arise when an employee believes that he or she has been wrongfully terminated or denied benefits. Sometimes harassment is the issue or retaliation by a superior or another co-worker. Sometimes the issue is unfairness. Being treated badly because of one’s gender, race or cultural origin is not only wrong, it is against the law. But as we all know, just because something is against the law doesn’t mean that your rights won’t be violated. Regardless of how the problem seems to someone outside your job, if it is happening to you, there is no such thing as a minor problem.
One of our partners, Sabrina Green, has extensive experience advocating for employees who feel they have been wronged in violation of California or federal laws: She regularly represents workers in state and federal courts of Southern California in all types of cases, including:
- Discrimination on the basis of race, gender, pregnancy, disability or national origin
- Sexual harassment
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Wage and hour claims, including class actions involving unpaid overtime
Ms. Green is also a certified mediator who can help employees and employers reach resolution of these disputes without engaging in full-fledged litigation.
