If you are not yet interested in speaking to one of our employee attorneys, here is a list of Important Employee Laws often violated in an employee labor dispute:
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) found in the California Government Code. These laws outlaw harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and termination in employment if done due to a variety of, “Protected Characteristics.” Protected characteristics include ancestry, age, cancer, color, disability, genetic conditions, national origin, pregnancy, race, sex, sexual orientation, and more. FEHA also prohibits sexual harassment whether done by a co-worker, or supervisor.
Other federal laws which are less inclusive than California laws but cover these same subject matters as FEHA include Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII.
The California Labor Code covers employer obligations to pay wages due. It also prohibits employers from defrauding employees into accepting employment. The California Labor Code further establishes a right to a safe and healthy workplace. California workers compensation laws are also found in the California Labor Code. Workers compensation rights include the rights to both compensation for physical and mental injuries.
The Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal labor code. This requires employers to pay minimum wage, overtime, and contains anti-retaliation provisions. The FLSA covers many of the same things the California Labor Code covers, but is less inclusive and favorable. For instance minimum wage is higher under California law and there are penalties for missed meal and rest breaks.
