Employee Discrimination and Harassment Prevention
When it comes to harassment and discrimination, state and federal laws protect all employees. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the principal federal agency charged with combating discrimination, and it collaborates with the Department of Fair Employment Housing in California. You would definitely benefit from the legal assistance of a competent attorney when filing a complaint with the EEOC and/or DFEH. While the EEOC and DFEH may be the first places you should go to exercise your legal rights, we will assist you in gathering evidence and building a detailed case documenting the instances you have experienced in order to maximise your compensation and avoid subsequent injustices.

Common Causes of Action in Employment Law
Employees and job candidates have specific rights and safeguards, such as the right to be treated fairly, the right to be paid fairly, and the ability to take time off for family and medical reasons. While federal employment laws set the bar, many states have enacted workplace legislation that give employees additional protection.
The following are examples of common employee concerns that end in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaints and/or lawsuits :
Discrimination : Employees and even prospective employees may not be discriminated against for certain characteristics, such as gender or nationality.
Sexual Harassment : Considered a form of gender discrimination, harassment occurs when inappropriate sexual behavior occurs within the workplace. This can include unwanted sexual remarks or physical contact.
Wage and Hour : Your employer is legally obligated to pay at least the minimum wage, pay overtime when hours exceed 40 per week, and abide by other wage and hour laws.
Wrongful Termination : Employers may not fire you out of retaliation for a legal complaint or for protected characteristics (such as race, gender, pregnancy, etc.).
