Employment Law

Los Angeles Employment Attorney

If you are facing a difficult situation at work, an experienced employment attorney can help. You don’t have to deal with the legal issues alone. At Rubin Law Corporation, we are committed to protecting the rights of California employees in the workplace. We are award winning litigators who know how to go to trial and win. Often, we can settle cases favorably before trial so you can collect the recovery you deserve and move on with your life. We practice employment law on behalf of employees exclusively and have done so for more than 20 years.

Types of Employment Law Cases We Handle

Our Los Angeles employment law firm has worked with clients with an array of employment law issues. We will listen to your story and then develop a plan to address your specific situation. With over 20 years of experience, we have the experience and knowledge to guide you through any of the following situations:

Wrongful Termination

If you have been fired from your job for illegal reasons, you may be able to file a wrongful termination claim. We know that the loss of a job can be devastating for both you and your family. You may be worried about paying bills and buying groceries. Let us worry about the legal issues. We can evaluate your case and advise you of your options, as well as file a lawsuit on your behalf.


People in certain classes have protections against negative employment action through discrimination. If your employer has terminated you, failed to promote you, or taken another negative action due to your race, religion, age over 40, sex, disability, and more, then you may have recourse against them. Contact our employment attorney right away to discuss your case.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can be traumatic for both men and women. It can include much more than the obvious touching or inappropriate words. If you’ve felt uncomfortable at work due to sexual advances, electronic or physical stalking, or other inappropriate behavior, an employment attorney can help you understand your rights under California law.

Wage & Hour Claims

Both state and federal laws mandate that you must be paid fairly. Unpaid overtime is often an issue that our employment attorney sees. When facing a large company and their attorneys, you need a lawyer who will stand by your side and represent your best interests. Rubin Law Corporation is not afraid to stand up for your rights to fair pay.

Whistleblower Claims

If you notice that your employer or a coworker are engaging in illegal or fraudulent activity, you may choose to report it. Both state and federal laws protect you from negative employment action after making a whistleblower claim. It’s important to work with an employment lawyer to make sure your rights are protected as you report those who have acted illegally.

Contracts & Agreements

Employment situations are often verified with a contract or employment agreement. However, your employer and their attorney have their own best interests in mind. You should have an employment attorney review your employment contracts to make sure that the agreements are addressing and meeting your needs.

Executives and Professionals

If you are an executive within a company, you have likely worked hard for that organization. You have a vested interest in seeing the company do well. However, when your own best interests conflict with those of the company, you should consult with an employment attorney.

Professionals with certificates and licenses often work hard to earn a position within an organization. Nurses, doctors, techs, and physicians may be confused about what to do when they are faced with employment issues. An attorney can guide you through the legal process and help you maintain your dignity.

Entertainment Industry

The entertainment industry is rife with illegal activity. It’s important to work closely with an employment attorney as you navigate both your workplace and everyday life. You will likely encounter contracts on a regular basis, and a skilled lawyer can review them to ensure that your employer is not taking advantage of you. At Rubin Law Corporation, we can represent you as you navigate the entertainment industry.

Understanding Employment Laws in California

California has strict laws that support employees. However, you must understand how they work in order to protect yourself. Federal laws can also benefit you, if you know how to apply them to your situation. Rubin Law Corporation can help you understand and protect yourself with the following laws:

It’s important to work with an employment attorney to make sure you use these laws to protect you.

Why You Need an Employment Attorney

It’s important to work with an employment attorney who has extensive experience representing employees. Legal issues can become complex quickly; moreover, employers and large companies often have teams of attorneys on their side. Don’t try to face them alone. Instead, work with an employment lawyer at Rubin Law Corporation who understands California and federal laws and can make those regulations work for you.

Los Angeles Employment Attorneys Representing Employees

Since 1995, our Los Angeles employment law firm has been vigorously protecting the rights of California employees in the workplace — from high-level executives and corporate leaders to class action cases of off-the-clock or misclassified workers who are claiming for unpaid overtime wages.

When trouble occurs, you deserve someone who can stand by you

Through negotiations and disputes, or in the courtroom, we’ll help you make the decisions that are best for you based on a full understanding of your rights under California law.

Attorney involvement from the beginning is critical

We prepare our cases early, and we prepare effectively so that we can settle matters favorably, often before a complaint is even filed in court.

We utilize medical professionals and certified public accountants (CPAs) or economists to substantiate your damage claims.

We work with private investigators to obtain witness statements, use specialized software to create timelines and charts, and access medical records to obtain the evidence needed to succeed in employment claims.

By preparing aggressively for litigation, our lawyers may be able to help you solve problems quickly, end discrimination, stop sexual harassment, and return your focus to your life and career. We are regularly involved in voluntary and court-ordered mediations, which can be a relatively fast and effective way to recover compensation for violation of federal and state labor laws.
