Protecting Workers' Rights

There are laws in place designed to protect the rights of workers across the state and across the nation. While the national laws create a strong foundation, the state of California has many laws that go even further toward protecting employees. For example, California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) offers greater protection for California employees.

We will assess your situation to determine how best to proceed with your case. We have helped many employees with legal concerns involving:

  • Helping government workers file complaints against their employers
  • Protecting the rights of employees in civil service hearings
  • Representing employees who have retaliation cases, including wrongful termination and whistleblower allegations
  • Assisting those who have been the victims of discrimination or harassment in the workplace
  • Helping employees with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission mediations
  • Representing teachers and educational employees with employment law claims
  • Working with employees who need to request a leave of absence or have other Family and Medical Leave Act claims
  • Negotiating or reviewing severance agreements
  • Protecting workers in unemployment appeal hearings
  • Assisting with requests for workplace restraining orders
