Sherman Oaks Employee Rights Lawyers
Representing Employees Throughout Los Angeles & California

Our aim is to ensure that you are provided the safe working environments to which you are entitled and given fair compensation for your work.

Legal Support for All Types of Workplace Violations
Our accomplished legal team can help you fight against an array of workplace abuses including:
- Overtime and wage disputes. This can include an employer’s failure to comply with standards concerning minimum wage, failure to compensate for overtime hours, inadequate record-keeping, and more.
- Violations of rest periods, meal periods, and vacation. These are abuses that arise when employers disallow your break periods mandated by law.
- Misclassification of employee status. This results in conflicts stemming from an employer wrongfully exempting you from overtime pay.
- Sexual harassment. Requesting sexual favors in exchange for a workplace benefit is illegal as is suffering harassment from coworkers, supervisors, and more in a hostile work environment
- Wrongful termination. This is the same as being fired for an unjust reason, such as reporting employer illegal conduct or exercising an employee right.
- Discrimination. This includes violations of your civil rights regarding race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, pregnancy, age, or disability.
- Medical leave. You are allowed to take advantage of the Family Medical Leave Act for specific family and medical reasons without losing your job or health care coverage.
- Equal pay. Under the Equal Pay Act, both men and women must receive equal pay for doing work of comparable value.
- Final paycheck violations. California law mandates that you are entitled to your final paycheck on the same day you are fired or within 72 hours of the date that you quit.
