An Aggressive Employment Law Attorney
Employment law involves a wide range of workplace-related legal issues such as discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, whistleblowers’ rights, EEOC, workers’ compensation, and minimum wage or overtime pay disputes. Often such matters can overlap. If you believe you are a victim of a civil rights violation in the workplace and are considering taking legal action, call us today.
When an employee is injured in the workplace, they have the right to receive workers’ compensation insurance benefits to pay for their medical care and the majority of their lost wages. However, it can be difficult for victims to get all the benefits they deserve unless they have experienced legal representation. Our number one priority is always helping our clients get the money they need following an accident.
In its original form, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 explicitly forbade employers from discriminating against workers due to their race, country of origin, nationality, or color. Since then, Title VII has been amended to include other so-called protected characteristics, including gender, age, and veteran status. If you are a victim of discrimination or some other breach of Title VII law, contact RP Law Group as soon as possible.
California is an at “at-will” employment state, meaning that employers are free to fire employees as they see fit. This freedom, however, does not grant employers the right to engage in wrongful termination. Examples of wrongful termination include firing someone for filing a workers’ compensation claim or because they become pregnant or injured. If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, call us today.
A “whistleblower” is an employee who brings attention to a violation at their place of work. Violations can include, but are not limited to, reporting dangerous working conditions, acting as a witness in a workers’ compensation case, or documenting discrimination. If you have tried to improve your workplace by bringing a violation to light and have have suffered negative consequences as a result, call RP Law Group immediately.
