EMPLOYEE RIGHTS LAWYERS
As employee rights lawyers our employment lawyers only represent employees. Because few employees recently fired from their job, owed wages, or victims of work harassment can afford to pay an experienced employee lawyer $300.00-500.00 an hour we represent all employees on a contingency basis. This means we take a percent based upon what we can collect from your employer. This also means that if you allow us to do our job and your case does not turn out favorably for you, you do not owe a large legal fee you must pay from your own funds. The percent we earn never changes. We get the same percent if we recover $10,000, or $1,000,000. In almost all circumstances, the hourly fee we end up earning on a contingency never equals fees in the range of $300-$500 an hour which you would have to pay in order to hire a lawyer. Hire us and you get experienced employee attorneys for less money per hour than it would cost to hire an electrician!
Why do we work for such low, uncertain wages? Employees spent most of their productive hours at work. Ifwork is not a good place to be (excuse the expression), "Life sucks!" Besides firmly subscribing to the belief work should not be a place where employees are subjected to workplace abuses and illegal treatment, our employee lawyers firmly believe in: worker rights, human rights, anti-discrimination, every person is equal, it is unfair to deprive an employee of wages due, and it is our mission to help people.
What does an employee lawyer do?
Our employee lawyers are courtroom lawyers. We use the civil litigation system to file employee lawsuits and obtain monetary recovery for employees through the court system or employer required binding arbitrations. Ifthe employee lawsuit involves claims of harassment or discrimination we may have to file administrative charges with the DFEH or EEOC in order to exhaust administrative remedies before utilizing the court system. We will not merely commit to representing you are the DFEH, EEOC, or Labor Board. We will promptly exhaust administrative remedies and fight your employee rights in court.
The variety of cases we handle for employees include:
- BREACH OF EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS
- DISCRIMINATION IN WORK
(AGE, DISABILITY, NATIONAL ORIGIN, PREGNACY, RACE, AND SEX)
- FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE OF ABSENCE CASES
- SEXUAL HARASSMENT
- UNPAID WAGES
(BONUSES, COMMISSIONS, DOUBLE TIME, MEAL BREAKS, MINIMUM WAGE, OVERTIME, PREVAILING WAGE, REST BREAKS, STOCK OPTIONS)
- WHISTLE BLOWER LAWSUITS AGAINST EMPLOYERS
