Representation for Workers in Woodland Hills
Dedicated To Representing People in the Workplace - Call (818) 918-5522
When we start a new job, we assume there will be a certain level of respect between employee and employer to ensure safety, comfort, and productivity. In fact, both state and federal laws require employers to maintain policies and foster work environments where basic employee rights and safety are made a priority. When this does not happen and an employee is wronged, then that employer may be liable for resulting damages.
Our firm proudly protects our clients through matters including, but not limited to:
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Violations
- Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Violations
- Unpaid Wages
- Unsafe Working Conditions
- Sexual Harassment
- Wrongful Termination
- Contract Review
- All Forms of Discrimination
Our firm strongly believes in the importance of a safe and fair work environment, but at times it can be a challenge to know when your rights are being ignored. Check out the links above to ensure that you are being treated with the respect and equality that you deserve. In addition, if you have any further questions call our firm today. Our experienced attorneys will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
What Do I Do if My Employer is Breaking the Law?
If you believe your employer is violating state or federal wage laws, your first step is to raise the issue internally. You should inform the Human Resources department or payroll department of your company of the problem, following your company’s procedures for bringing concerns to the attention of management. If your complaints don't get anywhere, consult with a competent employment law attorney in Woodland Hills at the Law Office of Payab & Associates.
How Can an Employment Law Attorney Help Me?
Employees have the option of pursuing unpaid compensation by either filing a wage claim with a state agency or filing a lawsuit in court. An employment lawyer can tell you whether either of these strategies makes sense, based on the facts of your situation. An employment lawyer will also tell you whether it makes financial sense to have legal representation or whether you should try to bring your claims on your own.
Most employment cases work on a contingency basis so that legal bills do not compound the stress resulting from your problem. This means that you don’t have to pay until a judgment is decided in your favor.
