What Is Employment Law?

Employment law governs the employer-employee relationship. It is a complex area of law that protects employees from unfair treatment and ensures employer compliance. This body of law includes a variety of statutes, regulations, and judicial decisions, covering areas such as discrimination, wrongful termination, and workplace safety. Employment laws also establish standards for such issues as minimum wages, hours of work, and other terms and conditions of employment. Employees are also provided remedies and protections in case an employer violates their rights and interests.

What Are Important Employee Protections in Los Angeles?

The following are several crucial state and city laws, agencies, and acts protecting Los Angeles workers:

  • The Office of Wage Standards (OWS). The OWS of the Bureau of Contract Administration is responsible for implementing and administering the Los Angeles minimum wage guidelines. 
  • California Labor Code. These laws specify California’s compensation requirements, including overtime pay, sick leave, and meal and rest breaks. They also include guidance on issues such as allowable working hours, workers’ compensation, and retraining and rehabilitation.
  • California Family Rights Act (CFRA). The CFRA  allows eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave for certain family and medical reasons within 12 months while maintaining their group health insurance.
  • California Occupational Safety and Health Act (Cal/OSHA). Cal/OSHA regulates safe and healthy work environments.
  • Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). The FEHA protects employees from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace based on protected categories, including race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, and more.
  • Worker’s compensation. California’s workers’ compensation system guarantees medical treatment and compensation for injured employees.

Other federal laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Civil Rights Act of 1964, Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) mandate equal opportunities, bargaining rights, sick leave, and retraining opportunities for all employees.  

Why Should I Hire a Los Angeles Employment Lawyer?

A Los Angeles employment law attorney will guide you through every step of your claims process, from filing complaints with the appropriate government agencies to representing you in court. They can evaluate your case’s strength, identify potential pitfalls, and develop a tailored legal strategy to protect your rights and ensure fair treatment. They also have access to valuable resources, such as expert witnesses, legal databases, and professional networks, which can bolster your case overall. By anticipating employer tactics and developing effective countermeasures, a Los Angeles employment attorney can ensure your case remains strong from inception to finish.

How Do I Hire an Employment Lawyer in Los Angeles?

With so many options, finding an attorney can take a lot of time and effort. But remembering a few helpful tips can help alleviate the stress as you find an advocate you feel comfortable with.  

  • Research – It’s important to find an experienced employment lawyer with a good reputation and track record of success handling similar cases. You can request recommendations from friends and family, search online for reviews and ratings, and check with the California Bar Association for a list of qualified attorneys.
  • Consultation – Once you identify potential candidates, schedule a consultation with each. Discuss your case during the consultation and ask any questions you have.
  • Retainer – When you select an attorney to represent you, you must sign a retainer agreement to secure the attorney’s services. The retainer agreement will outline their representation terms, including the scope of work, fees, and billing arrangements.

Also, consider the following factors before making a final selection:

  • Experience – check the lawyer’s years of practice, success rate, and if they have handled similar cases;
  • Communication – a responsive and communicative lawyer you feel comfortable talking to is crucial to a smooth working relationship;
  • Fee Structure – understand the lawyer’s fee structure, whether it’s a contingency fee, hourly rate, or flat fee, and any associated costs, before hiring them.

Following these tips and choosing the right lawyer can increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.

How Do I Know If I Have an Employment Law Claim?

You may have a claim if your employer engaged in wrongful or illegal behavior or violated your rights and freedoms—for example, if your employer paid you incorrectly, fired you unfairly, or discriminated against you because of a protected characteristic. An attorney at Bibiyan Law Group can help you determine whether you have a valid claim and the next best steps to take.

What Is a Hostile Work Environment?

A hostile work environment occurs when an employer subjects an employee to ongoing harassment, discrimination, or other offensive conduct based on their protected characteristics. A hostile work environment doesn’t always involve physical threats or violence; it can also include verbal or nonverbal behaviors.

Is It Illegal for Employers to Pay Less Than Minimum Wage?

Yes. Employers must pay employees the minimum wage set by federal, state, or local regulations. However, the minimum wage varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and, in some cases, a person’s age and job. For example, employers can pay tipped employees a lower wage in some states. Employers may also pay certain younger workers or employees in training programs a lower wage.

How Do I File a Wage and Hour Claim in Los Angeles?

You can file a wage and hour claim online with the California Labor Commissioner, who will investigate and determine an outcome.

What Is Employer Retaliation?

Employer retaliation is when an employer takes negative actions against an employee, such as firing or demoting them, in response to the employee engaging in legally protected activities or exercising their employment law rights. These protected activities include filing a complaint, reporting misconduct, or participating in an investigation.

What Do I Do If My Employer Wrongly Terminates Me?

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!
