What Is Employment Law?
Employment law is a grouping of federal and state regulations that cover the relationship between employers and employees, including an employee’s workplace rights and an employer’s responsibilities. These regulations address issues such as correctly handling hiring and firing, safe working conditions, benefits, and resolving work disputes. Following these guidelines helps employers treat their employees fairly and provide access to a just workplace.
Employment law is also the cornerstone of fair and equitable contract negotiations and collective bargaining. An employment lawyer who understands contract law can review employment terms and conditions such as compensation, benefits, and job duties to ensure they protect your rights from hiring to retirement.

Here are a few examples of the types of employment law issues our experienced team handles:
- Harassment and hostile work environment. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and other California laws protect employees from hostile work environments resulting from sexual harassment, discrimination, and unwelcome conduct.
- Discrimination. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit employers from making employment decisions based on religion, gender, race, age, sexual orientation, disability, or any other protected characteristics.
- Wage and hour disputes. California’s wage and hour laws protect and regulate employees’ wages, overtime pay, and meal and rest breaks.
- Workers’ Compensation. California’s Workers’ Compensation laws provide medical treatment and compensation for an employee’s work-related injuries or illnesses.
- Wrongful termination. Wrongful termination laws forbid businesses from firing employees illegally based on discrimination, retaliation, or in breach of their employment contract.
- Whistleblower protections. California and federal laws protect employees from retaliation when reporting illegal activities, safety violations, or other employer wrongdoing.
- Family and medical leave violations. The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allow eligible employees to take unpaid leave for family or medical reasons, such as severe health conditions, childbirth, and adoption.
