Workplace discrimination in California is prohibited by law. From the moment you’re hired, you have the right to work in a safe and harassment-free environment. If your employer has violated this right, then you may be able to file a lawsuit against them for damages. The Kaufman Law Firm is here to represent workers who have been subjected to unlawful treatment in Thousand Oaks.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) provide workers with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for certain reasons related to family or medical issues. If your employer has violated this law, you may have a CFRA and FMLA claim against them.
In California, workplace retaliation occurs when an employer takes negative action against an employee for exercising their rights. If you have suffered because of workplace retaliation, then the Kaufman Law Firm can help you file a claim for damages.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a serious violation of California law. The Kaufman Law Firm can help you file a sexual harassment claim and pursue damages against your employer for their unlawful conduct.
California law requires employers to pay employees for all hours worked and maintain accurate records of time worked, wages paid, and any overtime. If your employer has violated these requirements, then the Kaufman Law Firm can help you to file a claim for unpaid wages or overtime wages.
Whistleblower claims are essential to protecting workers who report illegal activities in the workplace. You may be a whistleblower if you have reported an employer’s illegal actions to the government or if you have been retaliated against for doing so.
