Types of Employment Rights Claims

There are many ways an employer can violate the protected rights of their employees, and it is imperative to speak to an employment rights attorney when you feel those rights have been violated. Different types of employment law case our experienced lawyers at Razavi Law Group have encountered include:

  • Discrimination in the Workplace: if you feel you have been discriminated against in your workplace due to your race, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, you may be entitled to compensation for the emotional damages that can accompany this devastating experience.
  • “Wage and Hour” Violations: under California wage and hour laws, non-exempt employees must receive a thirty (30) minute lunch or meal break if they work more than five (5) hours in a day. The meal break must be provided within the first 5 hours of the workday. Employees who work more than ten (10) hours per day are entitled to a second 30-minute meal break. If your employer has violated these California break laws you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Wrongful Termination: although California is typically an employment “at-will” state, if your employer terminated without cause, you might have a case. Being wrongfully terminated can lead to financial hardships, significant stress, and a gap in your employment.

You must not sign or accept any settlements from your employer before consulting with an experienced labor law attorney. Speaking with an attorney is crucial when you feel your rights have been violated. Most employers are more concerned with protecting themselves than compensating you for your trauma and hardship. Employers may either try to pay the lowest amount possible or try to avoid paying out altogether. Settlements accepted without consulting an attorney could result in low-ball offers that may not include damages you are entitled to, including economic expenses, as well as non-economic costs such as emotional trauma, pain, and suffering.
