Wrongful Termination Lawsuits

Under California law, it is unlawful to terminate an employee if a substantial motivating factor for the termination was prejudice based on a legally recognized characteristic or activity. Protected classes include age, race, national origin, religion, disability, or gender, while protected activity often relates to whistleblower conduct.

Discrimination Lawsuits

Failure To Pay Overtime Lawsuits

One of the biggest differences between employees and independent contractors is that independent contractors never have the right to overtime pay while many employees do.

Independent Contractor Misclassification Lawsuits

Most workers are presumed to be employees and have a right to be treated as an employee instead of an independent contractor. For both the company and worker, there's a major difference between employee and independent contractor status.

CAUSES OF ACTION

Common Claims

We fiercely litigate employment cases from initial pleadings all the way to settlement or trial. Some common employment claims are described below.

Commissions

The term “commission” is used in many ways during daily conversation. You may have heard people refer to various types of bonuses as commissions. Technically speaking, a commission means that the employee’s payment is a percentage of the value or price paid. Labor Code § 204.1 states: “Commission wages are compensation paid to any person for services rendered in the sale of such employer’s property or services and based proportionately upon the amount or value thereof.”

Failure To Accommodate

If an employee has an eligible disability, which is a lenient standard in California, an employer who is aware of the disability may have an obligation to speak to the employee about any needed modifications to the employee’s work duties. An employee may prevail in a failure to accommodate claim if the employer could have provided a reasonable accommodation for the disability without causing any danger to the employee or any other person’s health or safety and without causing any undue hardship to the operation of the employers’ business.

Failure To Investigate

If an employer receives a report that harassment or discrimination has occurred, it has a duty to investigate the alleged incident of harassment or discrimination. If the employer does not investigate, or if the employer’s investigation is not sufficiently thorough, the employee may prevail in a claim for failure to investigate. It is critical that a thorough investigation be completed so that the employer can make an informed decision regarding any necessary steps.

Failure To Provide

Employees in California have many rights that separate them from independent contractors, such as detailed payroll documentation and specific meal and rest breaks. Employees can sue employers for the failure to provide meal periods on time, the failure to provide detailed wage statements (aka paystubs) or the failure to provide a written commission agreement. Employers who fail to implement compliant policies and practices may be found liable for failure to provide appropriate meal breaks or rest breaks or failure to provide compliant wage statements.
