We Protect The Rights Of California Employees

In most employment situations, the employer is in a position of power over the employees of the business. However, laws exist to shield employees from mistreatment by employers and to protect workers from unfair payment practices.

Many employers make a point of telling their workers that California is an "at-will" employment state, and that employers may terminate employees for any reason at any time. However, it is against the law for employers to terminate employees for discriminatory reasons. It is also illegal to harass and discriminate in the workplace, as well as withhold earned wages. If you are a victim of mistreatment, the attorneys at RSnyder Law Firm, PC, can help.

You might feel overwhelmed by what happened to you, unsure of what to do and how you can protect your job.

Our experience in Employment Law allows us to provide effective guidance for individuals who experience various types of discriminatory and unacceptable treatment at their place of work or directly from their employer. We can help you with the following Employment Law concerns:

  • Withheld wages: You have the right to fair wages, as well as receipt of wages you earned. Employers are liable for adhering to fair wage practices and labor laws.
  • Employer retaliation: If your employer demoted you, treated you unfairly or subjected you to negative treatment simply because you filed a claim or exercised your rights, you may have a case.
  • Harassment and discrimination in the workplace: California law protects employees against harassment and discriminatory behaviors for gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, race and more.
  • Wrongful termination: You may know California is an at-will employment state, however, it is against the law for employers to terminate employees for discriminatory reasons.

If your employer wronged you in any way, you do not have to face it on your own. We can help you stand up for yourself, protect your rights and hold liable parties accountable.
