Types of Employment Law Cases California Employment Lawyers at Tomorrow Law Handle

In today’s ever-changing work environment, standing up for employee rights can be an uphill battle. From understanding complex employment laws to seeking fair treatment, just compensation, and a safe working environment, it’s no easy feat. But with the proper guidance, you can navigate this challenging landscape and ensure that your workplace rights are protected.

At Tomorrow Law, our dedicated, experienced California employment attorneys specialize in a wide range of employment law cases. They are fully dedicated to diligently addressing a diverse array of workplace challenges. These are examples of some of the more common cases we handle.

Workplace Discrimination If you're experiencing unfair treatment due to factors like your ethnicity, race, gender, age, religion, or disability, you may have grounds for an employment lawsuit. Examples include employers denying employment based on perceived race and experiencing exclusion from opportunities because of religion.
Workplace Harassment Harassment in the workplace can range from unwanted sexual advances and threats to offensive jokes, ridicule, and slurs. Examples include coworkers making inappropriate comments about a person's appearance or ridiculing a coworker based on their sexual orientation, religion, or ethnic background. These behaviors foster a hostile work environment and are illegal.
Wrongful Termination Most California employment is “at-will,” so not all job terminations lead to valid wrongful termination claims. However, it is illegal when employers terminate employees for unlawful reasons such as retaliation, discrimination, or whistleblowing.
Wage and Overtime Disputes It is illegal for employers to attempt to save money through unlawful practices such as refusing to pay employees the overtime they earned or paying workers less than the federal minimum wage. This type of wage theft can affect all hourly employees, from sales representatives to IT professionals to restaurant employees.
Workplace Retaliation Retaliation against an employee for reporting illegal activities, such as OSHA violations or filing a discrimination lawsuit against an employer, is unlawful. Retaliatory actions against an employee can include demotion, salary or wage reduction, and assigning employees to a lower-ranking position.
Contract Negotiations Contract negotiations typically involve employers and employees or their representatives (such as attorneys or labor unions) discussing and agreeing on an employment contract’s terms and conditions. These terms and conditions can include job offers, employment agreements, severance packages, and non-compete agreements.
Cal/OSHA Violations Cal/OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) violations refer to breaches of workplace safety and health regulations established by the California and U.S. Department of Labor. Violations can result in serious consequences for employers and pose risks to a worker’s well-being. If we didn’t list your particular employment situation above, fear not. We handle far too many types of employment cases to name them all. When you contact us for a free consultation, one of our skilled employment advocates can review your claim and help you chart the best course of action for your unique circumstances.

What Federal and State Laws Protect California Employees?

Federal and California employment laws play a vital role in safeguarding workers’ rights across various industries. They cover numerous employment-related matters, including employment contracts, tort claims, equal employment opportunities, wage and hour disputes, workplace safety, employee benefits, and union organization and collective bargaining issues. At Tomorrow Law, our California employment law attorneys specialize in navigating these complex legal frameworks to ensure employers treat their employees with respect and dignity. Our team is unwavering in our commitment to keeping up-to-date with these directives so that we can advocate fiercely for you and safeguard your interests.

Here is a list of the key state laws we often work with:

  • California Family Rights Act (CFRA),
  • Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA),
  • California Occupational Safety and Health Act (Cal/OSHA), and
  • California Labor Code

Other important federal laws that protect employees include:

  • Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA),
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA),
  • Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA),
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA),

While many federal, state, and local laws provide similar or overlapping protections, separate regulatory bodies enforce them. For example, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces specific federal discrimination and harassment laws under the Civil Rights Act. Similarly, the California Civil Rights Department oversees discrimination prohibitions set forth by California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act.

TESTIMONIALS

Customer Reviews

This law firm was extremely helpful and successful in my case. In a matter of 7 months they were able to settle my case! Joshua, Ariella, Vedang, and Iona were my attorneys and Aaron were extremely helpful in my case, always responsive and helped with any questions I had about my case. I was turned down by a few other law firms but this law firm took me seriously and won! I’m very satisfied with all of their services.

Fiorela A

They will always answer your calls and call you with updates to keep you informed. I had the pleasure of working with many of them and they are all great individuals. Bibiyan Law Group won two of the two cases I had with them and I’m pretty happy with them. I would recommend you give them a call.

Jose B

Super nice people. I opened a case with them and it took a while like most cases do but they made it very easy for me. I basically just told them what happened and they handled everything until the case closed while updating me in between and answering questions if I had any. Thank you!

Kaley C

Bibiyan Law Group was by far a great choice to make for my wrongful termination lawsuit. They kept me in the loop with all the details and supported me along the way until I received my settlement. Thank you for everything. Would recommend!
