What is Employment Law?

In these situations, our West Los Angeles employment lawyers are here to advocate for your rights and help handle the unique challenges related to an employment law claim.

California State Laws
In addition to federal employment and labor laws that employers are required to follow, every state has the right to pass their employment laws. California is a considerably employee-friendly state with various laws that have been implemented to protect California workers from discrimination and wrongful termination.
California employment laws include:
- The California Fair Employment and Housing Act: Makes it unlawful for employers with five or more employees to discriminate against applicants and employees because of their gender, age, sex, race, disability, pregnancy, or other protected class.
- The California Family Rights Act: Requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide an employee leave for a child’s birth without the fear of losing their job. Employers with five or more employees must provide leave of up to four months for pregnancy, a child’s birth, or a related medical condition.
When employers demote or terminate an employee or discriminate against a potential employee, the victimized parties can pursue legal action. An experienced West Los Angeles employment lawyer can discuss your situation with you and help you find the best solution to resolve and move forward from the matter.
What Steps Should I Take with Problems in the Workplace?
Often, employees have no other choice other than pursue legal action against the party responsible when confronted with workplace problems. However, before you can file a lawsuit against your West Los Angeles employer, you must first report them to applicable workplace discrimination organizations within the government.
CLC Law Group’s employment lawyers are here to help you determine which course of action is best for you. When the government agency cannot resolve the problem, a lawsuit could be the following step. With our help, you could receive compensation for your economic and non-economic damages concerning an employment issue.
