California Employee Rights Attorneys
Worker/Plaintiff representation after harassment, discrimination or other employee rights violations
Workplace discrimination and harassment are illegal. Depending on the facts, your employer may be liable for its activities. A consultation with our firm can help you determine what your rights are. Contact Jennifer Kramer Legal, APC, our employment lawyers will be able to tell you whether what you have suffered on the job crosses the line from unfair to illegal.
Our attorneys respond immediately and aggressively after any violation of civil or employee rights, including:
Employers will unlawfully misclassify employees as managers or independent contractors in order to save money, robbing the employees of overtime compensation to which they are entitled. We assist employees with regaining this overtime compensation, and other benefits to which they are entitled.
An employer has a legal obligation to ensure that there will be no tolerance in the workplace for sexual advances, a hostile work environment, inappropriate comments, or threats. We represent both men and women who are the victims of sexual harassment in the workplace.
Employers are legally mandated to treat employees fairly and not to discriminate against them. Being treated differently or adversely because of one or more of the following is illegal: race/national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, disability or pregnancy. Denial of work, being treated differently, denial of promotion, or termination of employment based on one of these areas is against the law.
When you are pregnant you are dealing with the pressures of your job and of being pregnant: morning sickness, exhaustion, prenatal checkups, etc. Unfortunately, many women are treated differently at work after they tell their boss they are pregnant. Many women become victims of pregnancy discrimination at a time when a new addition to the family leaves you more dependent on your job. We assist employees who have been unfairly terminated or put on the "mommy track" because they are or were pregnant. If this has happened to you, contact Jennifer Kramer Legal, APC for a consultation.
California law mandates that an employer is required to reasonably accommodate its disabled employees so that you can continue to work effectively. If your employer has refused to accommodate your disability or is treating you differently because of your disability, we can help. Whether you have been terminated, forced to take leave, or you are worried that your job is making your disability worse, if you face disability discrimination, we can give you an accurate assessment of your case, and help you get the accommodation that you need.
Additionally, if you or a family member is suffering from a serious medical condition, you may be entitled to medical leave under the CFRA/FMLA. In addition, if you are pregnant, you may be entitled to leave under state law. Contact us help you assess whether you qualify for a leave of absence.
If you have been fired, or your work conditions made so intolerable that you felt compelled to quit, we can help you. In addition to being unlawful to terminate an employee for discriminatory reasons, it is also unlawful to terminate an employee if the reason for the termination violates California public policy. Contact our office to find out more.
If you think your lost wages or other damages are too small for an attorney to help you, consider speaking with an attorney about whether a class action is viable. Class actions are filed to vindicate the rights of a group of individuals with common problems. If your employer is treating a group of employees in a similar manner, a class action may be appropriate. Contact our office to find out more.
