At Attorneys for Workers’ Rights, we understand the stress and frustration of being treated unfairly at work, losing your job at the worst possible time, and feeling helpless.

The California-licensed attorneys of Attorneys for Workers’ Rights exclusively serve employee-plaintiffs in the fields of labor and employment law in matters including discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, wrongful termination, and wage and hour issues.

Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation

Our attorneys represent employees who have been the victims of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation at work. California and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against or harassing individuals on the basis of sex, age, race, disability, and other factors when hiring, firing, promoting, disciplining, or making other employment decisions. These laws also prohibit employers from retaliating against workers who have complained about discrimination or harassment, filed a lawsuit or charge with a government agency such as the Labor Board, or participated in an investigation.

The following factors, among others, are protected categories under California and/or federal discrimination laws:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Sex/Gender/Gender Identity
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • Sexual Orientation

If you believe that you have experienced discrimination, harassment, or retaliation at work, please contact us for a free consultation.

You're not alone. We can help.

Wrongful Termination

It is unlawful for an employer to terminate your employment for a discriminatory or retaliatory reason such as taking medical leave or filing a claim for workers’ compensation or disability, among other reasons.

If you believe that you were terminated for a discriminatory or retaliatory reason, please contact us for a free consultation.

We listen to you and understand the problems you face.

Whistleblower Retaliation

California and federal laws make it unlawful to harass or to discriminate against or retaliate against individuals who have asserted legal claims or complaints against their employers or who have reported unlawful activity or safety violations to either their supervisor at work or to a government agency.

If you believe that you were the victim of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation for blowing the whistle on illegal activity, please contact us for a free consultation.

Whatever your questions, we are here for you.

Wage and Hour

It is unlawful under California wage and hour laws for your employer to fail to pay you overtime at the rate of one and a half times your hourly rate when you work more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 hours in a week. California workers are also entitled uninterrupted meal and rest breaks, depending on the lengths of their shifts.

If you believe that you did not receive your overtime compensation or were not allowed to take uninterrupted meal or rest breaks, please contact us for a free consultation.
