For Employees In California
Employment Law Attorney
Attorney Patricia A. Savage, with the Law Offices of Patricia A. Savage, offers legal services to protect employees in the workplace. Employment Law for employees deals with a variety of workplace issues. Many of the problems that occur in the workplace are unexpected, often recurring and include issues related to the payment of wages such as failure to pay full wages, failure to pay wages at the time of termination, failure to pay penalties and/or wages for missed meal and rest periods, failure to provide accurate wage statements, failure to pay overtime and/or double-time compensation, failure to pay vacation, and failure to properly classify an employee as an hourly employee. Oftentimes, employers will willfully misclassify an employee as “exempt” to avoid paying lawful overtime. If you believe you have not been fully or accurately paying all your wages, call today to protect your rights.
Other problems that cause employees in the workplace difficulty are related to issues including unwanted sexual advances and harassment, discrimination based on age wherein an older employee is targeted because of their age with ageist comments or unfairly replaced with younger workers, discrimination based on a physical and/or mental disability which requires accommodations and discrimination based on one’s national origin or race. Discrimination can take place in several forms, some not identified here, and can cause an employee severe stress. If you’ve suffered from any form of discrimination, call today to protect your rights.
Problems in the workplace can lead to discipline and even termination. Sometimes an employer will take disciplinary measures in retaliation against an employee who has exercised his/her right to complain about unlawful activities in the workplace. Common complaints in the workplace can include complaints related to under-staffing in health care facilities, failure to lawfully provide and secure medications, the failure to adequately train or protect employees involved with potentially dangerous equipment or in dangerous environments or other related workplace conditions that may threaten the health and/or safety of employees. We have seen cases when an employer will retaliate against an employee for taking lawful leave for medical issues related to the death or serious sickness of a loved one, pregnancy, or other serious and personal medical issues. Retaliation which occurs in the workplace can be actionable, and if you believe you have experienced retaliation you should call today to protect your rights.
