San Francisco Employment Law Attorney

Employees in the State of California – and throughout the nation – have important rights that are intended to protect them against discrimination, harassment, and other forms of workplace wrongdoing. Employment law violations can directly affect the livelihoods of those affected, which makes bringing strong employment law claims paramount. If you find yourself in a difficult situation like this, don’t wait to seek the skilled legal guidance of an experienced San Francisco employment law attorney.

State and Federal Protections

There are strict employment laws in place at the federal level, but California’s employment laws are generally more comprehensive still. All California employers who have at least five employers on their rosters must follow all federal and state employment laws, and when an employee is harmed by an employer’s failure to uphold said laws, they can seek compensation for the legal damages they experience. 

Your Basic Rights as an Employee

The primary legal restrictions that all California employees must abide by include the following:

  • Employees cannot be discriminated against in relation to age, race, sex, pregnancy, national origin and ancestry, physical or mental disability, or veteran or military status.
  • Employees must receive pay that is commensurate with laws related to minimum wage and overtime, and they must be afforded mandatory breaks that include breastfeeding breaks for new mothers.
  • The pay employees receive must be in accordance with all pay and benefits laws, which include factors related to healthcare continuation, temporary disability insurance, wage notice requirements, and beyond.
  • Employees are entitled to a safe working environment that is predicated on a written Injury and Illness Prevention Program. 

There are also legal requirements in place that apply to employment’s end, including compliance with final pay and job reference guidelines. 

Identifying Employment Law Violations

If you’re the victim of an employment law violation, you likely recognize that something is amiss, but pinpointing the problem can be challenging. To begin, many employees are averse to broaching this topic out of uncertainty and fear of retaliation. It’s important to note that there are also laws against retaliation in place. Further, there are certain telltale signs – like the following – that are reliable indicators you may be the victim of discrimination:

  • You’re treated differently in one capacity or another than other employees are.
  • Upon learning that you’re a member of a protected class, your employer’s attitude toward you changed. 
  • Your workload or job responsibilities have changed without explanation.
  • Your job performance reviews are less positive than they once were – for no discernable reason. 
  • You’re excluded from meetings and other office events that should include you.
