WHY SHOULD I HIRE AN EMPLOYMENT LAWYER?

Employment issues can often be difficult to come across, especially if there are serious obstacles to overcome such as harassment or discrimination. Fortunately, there are labor laws that are there to help protect employees in the workplace.

It is important that you hire an attorney to help you better understand your rights and your remedies if you have been the victim of a workplace dispute.

KNOW THE LAW & WHAT IS ILLEGAL

Some individuals fail to take action against employers simply because they don’t know they’re a victim of a volatile workplace or that they have legal options. By speaking with a labor law attorney and discussing your situation, you can better understand what actions are illegal, what you can do to seek justice, and who is responsible. Then you can understand what you may be entitled to and what else can be done to help get you the compensation you deserve.

PROTECTION FROM THE DEFENSE

Keep in mind, your employer or whoever is responsible for the workplace harassment or discrimination will most likely have a strong legal team looking out for their best interests. This means you also need strong legal counsel.

A lawyer will be there to present the necessary evidence and help you navigate the legal system without concern. An attorney can help you fill out the proper paperwork, meet deadlines, and work towards a favorable resolution.

Our Los Angeles employee rights attorneys at Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP are committed to the rights of employees who have been the victim of workplace discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage and hour disputes, and more.

WHAT CAN YOU SUE AN EMPLOYER FOR IN CALIFORNIA?

Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys have over a decade of experience helping protect employee rights in California. We believe that companies must be held accountable for violating state or federal laws designed to protect employees from wrongdoing.

At Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP, we handle the following kinds of employment law claims:

If you believe that you were mistreated or abused at work, you might be entitled to compensation. It is important to discuss your case with a Los Angeles labor law attorney as early as possible in order to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS

In some cases, an employer’s actions affect the entire workplace or a large group of employees. A class action lawsuit can help consolidate claims against a single defendant. The claims must share a common question of law or fact, and the class representative must be able to represent all of the members of the class adequately. 

Employment-related class action lawsuits should be handled by an experienced attorney. There are several legal procedures that must be followed in order for a court to certify the class. There are several benefits to filing a class action lawsuit, but an attorney should be retained first to ensure that the case moves forward.

HARASSMENT AT WORK

Employees should never be subjected to harassment, abuse, or mistreatment while at work. Unfortunately, workplace harassment is widespread, affecting men and women throughout the country. State labor law requires that employers not only investigate allegations of harassment but also take reasonable steps to prevent and correct the behavior. 

If you are being harassed at work, whether related to your race, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, or any other bases, you might be entitled to compensation. Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys can help determine if you have a valid cause of action and should pursue a claim for damages.

WAGE AND HOUR DISPUTES

Wage and hour disputes are among the most prevalent forms of employment law violations in the state. Employees might have a valid claim for damages if they were misclassified as exempt, not paid for all of the hours they worked, asked to work off the clock, or several other unlawful requests.

If you were underpaid or withheld overtime pay, you may be eligible to file a claim for damages. You deserve to be fairly compensated. Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys will help hold your employer accountable and get you the recovery you deserve.

WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION

Employees in California are protected from workplace discrimination. Individuals who are discriminated against because of their age, citizenship, disability, race, religion, creed, or another protected class, may be entitled to take legal action. 

Workplace discrimination is not limited to wrongful termination; it may also include being passed over for promotion, unfair treatment, retaliation, or if there is a hostile work environment. If you are being discriminated against at work, you need to act now to protect your rights. Our Los Angeles labor law attorneys can help you pursue a claim based on your mistreatment.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Sexual harassment is one of the most egregious forms of workplace harassment. Sexual harassment can be perpetrated against both sexes and is unlawful. A person should never have to be subjected to unwanted sexual advances, offensive sexual remarks, requests for sexual favors, or physical touching. 

If you are experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace, whether it is from a supervisor, a coworker, or anyone else, you have the right to file a complaint. Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys can help you hold all of those responsible accountable for their wrongdoing.

WRONGFUL TERMINATION

At Levin & Nalbandyan LLP, we seek restitution for individuals who have been wrongfully terminated from their employment. Too often, employees are fired for improper reasons. Our attorneys can help determine if you are eligible to file a claim based on wrongful termination. 

If you have been illegally fired from your position, you need to act quickly. Under California law, you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit based on wrongful termination. All wrongful termination claim evaluations are free and confidential.

WHY HIRE A LOS ANGELES LAW EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY

A Los Angeles employment law attorney can help you get compensation if you were mistreated, harassed, or discriminated against at work. Without the help of an attorney, you may not get the recovery you deserve, despite the fact that your company violated state or federal labor law.

Employment law is complicated and follows strict legal procedures. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in your claim being denied or dismissed. An attorney can help ensure that you meet all statutory requirements and file the appropriate legal documents. 

It is important to note that you only have a limited amount of time to file, so the earlier you consult an attorney, the more likely your case will be heard.

WHEN TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY

It is never too early to consult with an attorney, but it can be too late. The earlier in the process you retain legal representation, the better. Filing a claim beyond the statute of limitations may result in your case being dismissed or may bar your right to recovery.

HOW WE CAN HELP

When employees are discriminated against, harassed, or mistreated, they deserve an advocate. They deserve someone who will fight to protect their rights and hold wrongdoers accountable. At Levin & Nalbandyan, our Los Angeles employment law attorneys aggressively defend the rights of workers, never resting until justice is served.

Companies big and small often take advantage of employees, failing to pay them sufficient wages or creating an unsafe, hostile work environment. We believe that workers deserve better. Our firm is dedicated to helping those that have suffered at the hands of their employers.

PROVEN RESULTS

We believe that employees deserve to be treated fairly; anything less is unacceptable and unlawful. When there has been a violation of state or federal law, our Los Angeles employment law attorneys do not give up. 

We have obtained multiple seven-figure settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients, including a $10 million jury verdict for a victim of workplace sexual harassment. If your employer has engaged in any form of harassment, discrimination, or abuse, you should not wait. Get the legal help you need now.

EMPLOYMENT LAW FAQ’S

​​WHAT IS THE LOS ANGELES FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT (FLSA)?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that provides worker protections and sets wage standards for the nation. It establishes a federal minimum wage, overtime pay eligibility, recordkeeping requirements, and child labor provisions that most companies must follow.

Nearly all employers are required to comply with the FLSA as it applies to any business that engages in interstate commerce. Some employees, however, are exempt from specific provisions of the act, including overtime pay,  because of their position or salary. 

Individual states may set additional standards and workers’ protections, such as a higher minimum wage, but may not limit the requirements outlined in the FLSA.

HOW DO YOU WIN A LAWSUIT AGAINST YOUR EMPLOYER?

The best way to win a lawsuit against your employer is to hire an experienced employment law attorney. A lawyer can help you build a strong case, including gathering evidence and obtaining witness statements. Without the help of an attorney, you may end up settling your case for less than it is worth or for nothing at all. 

It is imperative that you act quickly if you have been wrongfully terminated or suffered discrimination at work. You only have a limited amount of time to bring a lawsuit against your employer. 

By taking legal action, you might be able to recover compensation for your damages. An attorney will act as your advocate throughout the process and give you the best chance at success in your case.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED WRONGFUL TERMINATION IN CALIFORNIA?

Wrongful termination in California occurs when a person is fired or let go from their job for an illegal reason. Examples of wrongful termination include when an employer fires you in retaliation for not participating in unlawful behavior or filing a workers’ compensation claim. 

Other forms of wrongful termination may result from discrimination or violation of a public policy. While most employees in California are considered at-will and can be fired without cause, the reason or motivation for the termination cannot be unlawful. It is essential to discuss your case with a wrongful termination attorney to determine if you have a valid claim for damages. 

HOW DO I PROVE A HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT?

To prove a hostile work environment, you must show that the “harassing conduct sufficiently offends, humiliates, distresses, or intrudes” upon your emotional tranquility in the workplace, your ability to perform your job, or otherwise interferes with your personal sense of well-being. 

Generally, you must show that the harassing behavior was pervasive or severe and was because of a protected class trait (gender, race, etc.). A single offensive comment is insufficient to create a hostile work environment.

A hostile work environment is most effectively shown through documented evidence such as emails, internal memos, voice recordings, or text messages. Previous complaints filed with human resources or a supervisor regarding the offensive behavior may also be clear and convincing proof of the continued misconduct, abuse, or mistreatment.
