What Employment Practices Are Illegal?
California has numerous laws and regulations regarding employer behavior. It is important to understand your rights as an employee and to take action if you are being mistreated. Sullivan Law Group APC assists clients with a variety of employment law cases such as:
Wage And Hour Claims
A large portion of employment issues stem from unfair pay. This could include paying below minimum wage, failing to pay overtime rates, failing to provide accurate pay stubs or refusing to allow meal breaks and rest breaks. If you notice issues with your pay or hours, talk to a lawyer right away.
Wrongful termination can also be difficult to prove because not every termination is illegal behavior. However, if you suspect your termination is due to discrimination or retaliation, or if it violates laws or contracts surrounding your employment, speak to a lawyer about your options.
Do Not Fear Retaliation
