Understanding California Labor Laws

California has enacted comprehensive employment laws to safeguard the rights of workers and address workplace inequalities. These laws cover various aspects of employment, including wrongful termination, workplace retaliation, harassment, discrimination, unpaid wages, and leaves of absence. Familiarizing yourself with these laws can help you understand your rights as an employee and take appropriate legal action if needed.

Protecting Employee's Rights

If you’ve faced a difficult and unjust situation at work, you will need to hire the best Pasadena employment lawyer obtainable. That’s not always easy since many lawyers would rather take the easy route by taking a settlement at the first stage of negotiations. Don’t cheat yourself out of what you deserve.

Common Employment Law Protections

We are employee attorneys in Pasadena who represent workers who have been discriminated against, wrongfully terminated, or otherwise treated unfairly by their employers. Setyan Law handles many different types of employment litigation cases, including:

  • Workplace Discrimination - Discrimination in the workplace is illegal and refers to treating employees differently based on protected characteristics such as sex, race, national origin, religion, age, and disability. California's employment laws, along with federal statutes like the Civil Rights Act of 1964, protect employees from workplace discrimination. Examples of workplace discrimination include denying promotions, pay raises, or benefits based on protected characteristics. If you believe you have been a victim of workplace discrimination, it is important to consult with employment law attorneys who can guide you through the legal process and help you seek compensation for the harm caused.
  • Workplace Harassment - Employees have the right to a workplace free from harassment, including verbal, physical, and sexual harassment. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits workplace harassment and defines it as offensive, unwelcome behavior that creates a hostile or intimidating work environment. Harassment can take various forms, such as inappropriate comments, offensive jokes, derogatory slurs, and discriminatory treatment based on protected characteristics. If you have experienced workplace harassment, it is crucial to consult with our Pasadena employment law attorneys who can help you hold your employer accountable and seek justice.
  • Wrongful Termination - Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired unlawfully. Even in at-will employment states like California, employers are required to adhere to certain laws and public policies when hiring and firing employees. It is illegal to terminate employees based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other protected characteristic. Whistleblowers are also protected and cannot be fired for reporting unlawful or unethical conduct. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, it is essential to consult with a top-rated Pasadena employment law attorney to understand your options for seeking compensation.
  • Workplace Retaliation - Workplace retaliation refers to the adverse actions taken by employers against employees who engage in legally protected activities. If you have exercised your rights, such as filing a complaint or participating in an investigation, and have faced retaliation in the form of termination, demotion, or other adverse actions, you may have a claim for workplace retaliation. California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) statutes and Department of Labor (DOL) codes provide protections against retaliation. Consulting a seasoned employment litigation attorney can help you navigate the legal process and seek remedies, restitution and compensation for the harm that was caused.
