Employment Law

Every day, hardworking employees across Southern California become victims of workplace harassment, discrimination, improper demotion, and wrongful termination. It is disturbing how someone can pour vast hours of their life and expend significant efforts into a company and when it financially suits the company, be let go or passed for promotion as if none of their contributions matter. If you were subjected to an employment decision or situation that does not sit right with you, give us a call for a free consultation. The law provides California employees with numerous protections, many of which our clients didn’t even know existed before our free consultation.

To prevent employers from covering their tracks and to preserve as much evidence as possible, we recommend that people who think they may be the victim of employment/labor law violations contact our office immediately. In some cases, the statute of limitations may be very short, depending on the nature of the case and whether the employer is a governmental entity.

At Workman Law & Litigation, we represent all types of employees, from hourly workers to senior executives and handle a wide variety of employment and labor law claims, such as:


California law guarantees employees the right to work free from discrimination based on age, race, sex, national origin, pregnancy, disability and other protected classifications. Discrimination can take the form of opportunities withheld from certain groups, unfair hiring or promotion practices, or wrongful termination. Often times, companies try to mask their true intent or a broad pattern of discrimination by giving false or deceiving reasons for treating certain employees differently.

Sexual Harassment

California and Federal laws provide remedies to stop unwelcome sexual advances and hostile work environments. Sexual harassment is often an embarrassing ordeal, leaving many afraid to speak out. Some worry that they may have misinterpreted the conduct of others, and for those who know the conduct was wrong, they nonetheless are afraid to tell anyone out of fear of shame. At Workman Law & Litigation, we help empower our clients and to restore their dignity and careers.

Sexual harassment includes unwanted comments of a sexual nature, sexual innuendos, lewd or sexist remarks, requests for sexual favors in exchange for promotion, and making sexual jokes. This behavior creates an unpleasant and oppressive employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position.

The harasser can be female or male. Sexual harassment can also occur between coworkers of the same sex. The harasser can be your supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in a different department, a co-worker, or even a non-employee (client or customer) that you are required to interact with.

If you are subjected to any of this type of unwelcome behavior, and it unreasonably interferes with your work performance or creates a hostile or offensive work environment, then you may be a victim of sexual harassment.

Other less common types of employment/labor law claims include wrongful termination, age discrimination, overtime/wage disputes, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Disputes, Government Fraud Cases, Independent Contractor Claims, and Whistleblower Claims.
