What Types of Employment Law Cases Do We Handle?

The following are a few examples of common employment law cases we handle.

Wage and Hour Disputes

California has some of the most employee-friendly wage and hour laws in the United States. These laws provide protections that often exceed those available under federal law. Common wage and hour claims include:

  • Minimum wage disputes,
  • Overtime claims,
  • Meal and rest break issues,
  • Exempt vs. non-exempt employee disagreements,
  • Payday requirement matters,
  • Record-keeping disputes, and
  • Final paycheck issues.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets minimum wage, overtime, and child labor rules. However, the California Labor Code, Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC), and Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) also set and enforce statewide regulations. A San Mateo employment attorney at Bibiyan Law Group, PC, can review your claim and help you determine which laws apply.

Wrongful Termination

When an employer unfairly terminates an employee, it may be a wrongful termination. These cases often involve breaches of employment contracts or firings that violate state or federal laws. Employees can sue for lost wages, job reinstatement, and sometimes punitive damages when employers wrongfully terminate their employment. However, proving wrongful termination can be challenging and often necessitates substantial evidence requiring the services of a lawyer skilled in San Mateo employment law.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that interferes with an individual’s employment. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), victims can sue for damages, including emotional distress and lost wages. Moreover, employees can hold their employers liable for harassment if they fail to take adequate preventive or corrective measures.

Employment Discrimination

Discrimination occurs when an employer mistreats an employee based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, religion, or disability. Laws like the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and California’s FEHA prohibit such discrimination. These laws mandate that employers provide equal opportunities and not engage in discriminatory hiring, firing, or promotion practices.

Whistleblower Protection

Various state and federal laws and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) for public company employees protect workers who report their employer’s illegal activities. Under these laws, employers can not fire or discriminate against employees for whistleblowing. When they do, they may be subject to fines and other penalties. Employee remedies may include job reinstatement, back pay, and other forms of compensation.
