Employment Law Representation for Los Angeles, CA Employees

Every employee has certain rights and legal protections while in the workplace. They have the right to be paid on time and in full for their work, the right to rest and meal breaks as required by state law, and the right to a workplace free of harassment and discrimination. Unfortunately, not every American employee is afforded these rights, and many people face undue hardship because of mistreatment from their coworkers, managers, supervisors, and employers.

If you work in Los Angeles, CA and experience any type of legal issue involving your employment or your employer, you need a Los Angeles employment attorney who can guide you through the various legal proceedings you will face. The fact is that many different employment law-related matters have tremendous negative impacts on employees’ lives. Workplace injustices can result in economic losses, emotional distress, and even exposure to dangerous physical elements in the workplace. Park APC can provide the legal counsel you need to hold an employer accountable when they violate California and/or United States employment laws.

Why Should I Hire a Los Angeles Employment Law Attorney?

Confronting an employer regarding any legal matter, whether it involves harassment, discrimination, or a wage and hour dispute, can be incredibly daunting for an employee. In many instances this is because most employment in California functions on an “at-will” basis, meaning both an employer and an employee have the legal right to terminate their working relationship at any time, for any reason or no reason at all, with or without prior notice. This can lead many employees to assume that if they cause any type of dispute at work, there is nothing preventing their employers from firing them outright.

The reality is that, while it is true employers have the flexibility to fire employees as they see fit, they may not base firing decisions on an employee’s protected personal traits, such as their race, skin color, nationality, religion, age, sex, or medical status. Additionally, employers may not take punitive actions against employees who engage in protected actions, such as testifying in a court case involving the employer or filing for workers’ compensation benefits after an accident at work. Employers must also abide by the wage and hour laws of California and pay their employees accordingly.

An experienced Los Angeles employment attorney can help employees navigate the complex laws and statutes surrounding employment law in California. An employee who attempts to take their legal matters into their own hands and pursue any type of employment law-related claim against an employer faces an extraordinarily complicated process. Working with an experienced legal team is the best way to assess the available solutions to any employment-law related matter in Los Angeles, CA. In most cases, you will need to file a claim against your employer with a state or federal agency, and this process is much more streamlined—and often more fruitful—with an experienced attorney’s assistance.

Types of Cases We Handle

Park APC has extensive experience providing comprehensive legal counsel to employees across all industries in the Los Angeles, CA area. We know how stressful and isolating it can be to face any type of legal dispute with an employer and that many employees in this situation feel powerless. Our goal is to guide you through each stage of your employment dispute no matter what it entails.

Our firm can provide the legal counsel you need in a wide range of employment law matters, including:

  • Wage and hour disputes. Has your employer failed to pay you on time per the terms of your employment agreement? Have they failed to pay you overtime rates per California wage and hour laws? Whether you have not received fair pay, or your employer has failed to provide complete and accurate payroll records to you during your employment, you have the right to seek the wages you are rightfully owed.
  • Harassment. No employee should be subjected to harassment in the workplace. Perhaps an employer or coworker has made unacceptable remarks about a protected class you belong to. Maybe you have been subjected to a hostile work environment. No matter the root of the harassment you have experienced, we can help you hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions.
  • Discrimination. Do you believe an employer recently made an employment-related decision based on your protected personal qualities, such as your race, religion, sex, or medical status? The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) prohibits American employers from engaging in discrimination of any kind. Park APC can help you file an EEOC claim against a discriminatory Los Angeles, CA employer.
  • Wrongful termination. California employers have flexibility in firing employees due to the state’s at-will employment laws, but this does not mean they have the right to fire employees for illegal reasons. If you believe you were wrongfully terminated for any reason, our team will help you explore your legal remedies and pursue damages for the financial effects of the wrongful termination.

These are just a few examples of the employment law matters Park APC can help you address with your California employer. It is highly likely that your case will involve a claim through the California Wage and Hour Division, the EEOC, or various other state and/or federal agencies. Our goal is to help you understand your rights as well as your options for legal recourse after experiencing any form of mistreatment from your employer.

What to Expect from Your Los Angeles Employment Lawyer

Depending on the type of employment case before you, it is possible to hold an employer accountable in several ways. A successful claim could entitle you to compensation for back pay for unpaid wages, unpaid benefits, and even statutory damages. If you were wrongfully terminated, you may be able to secure reinstatement if you desire to return to your job. Perhaps most importantly, your successful case may prevent your employer from similarly affecting others in the future.

It is natural to feel uncertain regarding what you should do when you have experienced mistreatment at work. Park APC are the Los Angeles employment lawyers you need to address your situation expediently and effectively, holding your employer accountable for their failure to respect your rights.
