Sexual Harassment

There are two types of sexual harassment:

1) “Quid pro quo” is when a supervisor demands sexual favors of a subordinate as a condition of getting or keeping a job benefit.

2) A “hostile work environment” arises when a co-worker, supervisor, or client engages in unwelcome and inappropriate sexually based behavior, rendering the workplace atmosphere intimidating, hostile, or offensive.

Wage & Hour Law

Common wage and hour issues in California include failure to properly provide:

  • Meal & Rest Breaks
  • Overtime pay
  • Expense reimbursement
  • Off the clock compensation
  • Prevailing wages

Common mistakes for employers also include:

  • Independent contractor misclassification
  • Salaried employee misclassification

Wrongful Termination

In addition to the above, wrongful terminations occur in a variety of other situations including:

 

Discrimination

Discrimination or harassment at work is prohibited based on the following categories:

Pregnancy Discrimination

Unfortunately, pregnancy discrimination is prevalent in the workplace.  During the joyous and stressful time of being pregnant, women are often refused pregnancy and disability leave they are entitled to, retaliated against, and even terminated because their employers do not want to be inconvenienced.

Disability & Medical Leave

Most people, and even many employers, don’t know that in addition to the disability leave employees may be entitled to, that most employers must also continue to reasonably accommodate their employees disabilities

Class Actions

Civil lawsuits brought on behalf of a group of employees require an attorney with experience in class actions. I have significant class action experience and ready for the toughest of cases.
