Employment Law Attorney
You have a right to be treated fairly at work. Both state and federal laws protect employees who have faced inequities in the workplace. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act are federal protections for workers. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act is just one law that addresses employer practices in the state. If you feel any of these or other laws have been violated, contact an Anaheim CA employment law attorney.

If your employer fired you for an illegal reason, you may be able to file a wrongful termination claim. Wrongful termination is not uncommon and may occur when you report discrimination or harassment or illegal business practices. Contact an Anaheim CA employment law attorney to find out if you have a wrongful termination claim against your employer.
Workplace discrimination is often illegal. Federal laws provide protection from discrimination based on race, disability, sex, religion, and age, among others. California state laws are even more thorough, providing protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, medical conditions, and marital status. Any discrimination based on these characteristics is illegal and you may have a claim against your employer.
Discrimination at work may take the form of harassment, which creates a hostile work environment. Harassment may take place from a supervisor or coworker. If you’ve notified your supervisor or HR department and they did nothing about it, then you may have a claim.
Discrimination may also take place through key employment decisions. If you are not hired, fired, or do not get a promotion due to a protected characteristic, then you may have a claim against your employer. An Anaheim CA employment law attorney can help you evaluate your situation and protect your rights.
When someone makes repeated comments about your sex or gender, it may create a hostile work environment. The law prohibits this type of sexual harassment. It can be difficult to know if you’re actually facing sexual harassment. One time statements and jokes often don’t qualify. However, repetitive comments that impact your work may be harassment and warrant a claim. Consult with an Anaheim employment law attorney who can evaluate your situation.
Wage and Hour Claims
The U.S. Department of Labor has a Wage and Hour Division that protects people who are not being paid properly. Whether you have not been paid minimum wage or your employer failed to pay you overtime, then you may have a claim.
California has one of the highest minimum wages in the country. This protects employees who work hard for their wages. If you have not received minimum wages according to state law, then you may be able to file a claim against your employer.
Wage and hour claims can often be complex, and may be filed at the state or federal level. An Anaheim CA employment law attorney can guide you through the process to protect your rights to a fair wage.
If you have reported your employer for illegal or unethical activities, then they may retaliate against you. However, such an action is likely illegal. If you report your employer for illegal actions or failure to comply with codes, you have legal protections. Both state and federal laws provide for whistleblower claims against employers who take negative action against employees who are acting for the greater good by reporting them.
