Employment Law Practice Areas

Whether you have been a citizen of this country for decades or you are a recent immigrant, we are here to protect your rights. We have won millions of dollars in judgments and verdicts on behalf of abused individuals throughout California, including employees and employers who have been mistreated.

Our employment law practice areas include, but are not limited to the following:

Employee-Employer Relations

Employers and employees rely on one another for the success of a business and thus must fulfill certain obligations. Our attorney can resolve any disputes regarding an employee's classification, pay, and other concerns as they pertain to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Unemployment Insurance

Have you been wrongfully terminated? Our firm can answer your questions about unemployment insurance, help you appeal a denial of unemployment benefits, and address any related concerns about your rights.

Wrongful Termination

Although California is an “at will” state, that does not mean that employers cannot be held accountable for instances of wrongful termination. Give our office a call to speak with a Pasadena employment lawyer if you believe your termination was a result of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.

Wage and Hour Law

Employers have a responsibility to compensate their workers fully and fairly and to ensure that their employees take all of their required rest and meal breaks without interruption. If you were forced to work through your breaks without pay or you have been denied overtime pay for hours worked, get in touch with our attorney as soon as possible.

Discrimination and Harassment

California employers must abide by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against or harass employees or job applicants based on their race, national origin, sex, gender, age, pregnancy status, and other protected characteristics. If you are being treated differently from other employees or are enduring physical, verbal, or sexual harassment by an employer, you may have a valid legal claim.

Risk Assessment

Our Pasadena employment law firm works with employers to ensure compliance with state and federal employment laws in order to identify areas of potential liability and avoid future legal issues. 

Representation for Employers 

Our experienced Pasadena employment lawyers also represent employers who have been charged by state or federal government agencies for alleged violations of labor and employment laws, including discrimination and harassment.
