Contact our employment attorney right away to discuss your case.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

My mother, a former client of Steven Rubin, is now residing at Ocean Villa, an assisted living facility in Santa Monica. Thanks again for helping her out nearly 5 years ago to retain her dignity and helping her to retire on her own terms. We can’t thank you enough for doing a fabulous job for her in her time of need.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Steve Rubin as an attorney. I interviewed many prospective lawyers for my employment law case, but none came close in regards to their knowledge of the law and ability to relate to my needs as a client. Since I had a Whistleblowing case, suing a large institution with their own team of lawyers, it was important for me to have an attorney that I had complete confidence in, and felt was always on my side and willing to do the extra work that was required for a successful outcome. We were able to settle our case during the deposition phase, and were thus able to avoid the drama and trauma that accompanies a court trial. The award has enabled me to walk away from the situation with dignity and pride, and a sense that justice had prevailed.
I found The Rubin Law Corporation after a Google search for employment discrimination attorneys. I had been wrongly terminated from a high paying position with a large corporation. I was fully qualified for the position I was hired for but was let go after two weeks with the company claiming that “I was the wrong fit for the job”. I felt I had been discriminated against, and that the company handled the situation unprofessionally, and possibly illegally. I called Steven and made a consultation appointment. We reviewed the details of my case, and Steven was a pleasure to work with; he helped me understand the situation, and gave me several options of next steps we could take. Steven said my case was very strong and took it on free of charge confident we could reach a settlement with my former employer…
I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Rubin to anyone in need of an employment attorney. Mr. Rubin and his associates took every measure to ensure the best outcome of my case and kept me informed throughout the process. Mr. Rubin is a hard working attorney who truly was concerned with seeking the best results for me in my case in order to make me whole again. I enjoyed Mr. Rubin’s sense of humor and admire his expertise in employment law.
I never worked with a lawyer before Mr. Rubin. He and his legal team made all the daunting legal stuff not so daunting. It’s difficult to paint a complete picture of my state when I first met Steven. The company I had been employed by for over 20 years had just fired me and accomplished this through lies, humiliation and defamation of character. When I came to The Rubin Law Firm I was at a very low point in my life but after hearing my story Steven could see I had been wronged and started to work on making things right. He was exceptionally responsive, articulate and very understanding about my case. The Rubin Law Firm not only got my reputation back but brought to the surface the lies and deceit and the person responsible. Steven is a true professional and very reliable. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful my experience has been and he also got me a very nice settlement as well. The Rubin Law Firm definitely exceeded my expectations!
Steve Rubin is by far one of the most exceptional attorneys I have had the pleasure to work with. Steve has a passion and dedication to law, specifically in doing what is morally and ethically right. One of the main reasons I chose Steve to represent me was because he believes in the goodness of humanity, being good to one another, and standing up for what is right. Steve will only take on cases that he believes in, and will stand behind his clients regardless how high the obstacles may be. In addition, Steve is extremely knowledgeable of the policies and practices in all areas of law. He is very attentive to all details involved, and truly cares in ensuring his client understands all aspects of his or her case. His firm as a whole is wonderful; his assistant Bic is also very supportive and is superb in following up with his clients. Given his many years of expertise and knowledge in the legal field, Steve can predict the possible outcomes of any case, and in most cases, will be able to inform his client of everything before it happens…
I spent a lot of years working for a really good Company that treated its people fairly, a place where people (especially Management) who were incompetent and unethical never made it past the first 6 months. I was really just naive to what extent other Companies (and I am talking Large Publicly Traded Companies) would go to, to avoid paying for an ill employee to “get them off the books.” When this blatantly happened to me, I said, “NO!” I really didn’t have any choice, I was in my 40s needing surgery, unemployed trying to figure out how to pay my Cobra, unable to continue my Life Insurance, unable to keep up with my mortgage and forced out of my job under the guise of lay off. I decided, I could not let this one go and found Steve Rubin. He and his staff (who are amazing) gave me the support and the confidence that I needed to fight. Not only am I pleased with the outcome, but the process (though difficult) surprisingly was what I really needed to get through this emotionally…
