Our Employment Law Attorneys Are Here To Help You
There are numerous California and federal laws in place to protect the rights of employees. However, many workers are not aware there are laws that exist to protect them, and this can lead to employers mistreating their employees. At Licata & Yeremenko, we have extensive experience representing California workers who have been treated unfairly and/or who have been wrongfully terminated.
Whether a worker has faced discrimination, harassment, has experienced wage and hour violations, or any number of other grievances, we are here to help. Our California employment law attorneys have the resources necessary to investigate employer wrongdoing and will do their best to secure clients their rightful compensation and obtain justice. We proudly serve clients throughout the Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, Riverside County and San Bernardino County areas.
Employment Law Violations That Can Occur
Employment law covers a wide range of violations that could occur in the workplace. At Licata & Yeremenko, our team of California employment law attorneys has a track record of success helping clients with the following issues:
- Employee discrimination cases (based on race, color, national origin, sex, physical or mental disability, pregnancy status, age, religion/creed, sexual orientation, or other protected class)
- Hostile work environment
- Sexual harassment
- Retaliation for engaging in protected activity
- Failure to pay proper uninterrupted meal breaks and/or rest breaks
- Failure to pay overtime, double-time, or minimum wage
- Wrongful termination
- Unsafe work environment
- Employment contract violations
When handling cases of discrimination based on race, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender, or other protected class, there are federal and state laws and regulations offering protections to employees. While we would rather never hear about these types of discrimination occurring in the workplace, our attorneys are standing by to help victims obtain justice and compensation when discrimination occurs.
Additionally, the #MeToo movement has highlighted just how prevalent and abhorrent sexual harassment and sexual assault are in the workplace. We want to help employees who experience this type of behavior in the workplace come forward and stand up to those who abuse or harass them.
When we turn to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Labor Code, and other laws in California, it is clear that every employee has the right to receive fair wages in the workplace. Our attorneys have experience investigating and litigating wage and hour violations.
Finally, our attorneys are fully prepared to help employees combat wrongful termination and retaliation in the workplace. There are various reasons why an employee may be wrongfully terminated or face retaliation in the workplace, and we will get to the bottom of the issue to ensure that our clients are treated fairly.
Types Of Compensation That Could Be Available For Employment Law Violations
Workers who successfully bring employment claims against their employers, may be able to recover damages to compensate them for the wrongful conduct and resulting losses. At Licata & Yeremenko, we strive to assist our clients to recover:
- Past and future loss of earnings
- Any unpaid wages or benefits, including appropriate penalties and/or interest
- Reinstatement to a job (if available and/or desired)
- Promotion to a new position (if warranted and/or desired)
- Emotional distress damages
- Potential punitive damages
- Attorneys’ fees
The amount of damages and types of remedies available to individuals for employment law cases will vary depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding each particular situation. Our experienced employment law attorneys will thoroughly investigate each claim and work toward achieving the optimum outcome for our clients.
Timely Filing Of Employment Law Claims
It is crucial to file employment law cases within the proper time limits, as required by California state and federal laws.
The deadline to bring such claims depends on the type of claims at issue, the jurisdiction, and even the type/status of the defendant. For this reason, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to make sure that you do not miss out on any potential claims. Our attorneys will review the facts pertaining to your case and provide you with proper guidance with regard to any applicable deadlines.
