Los Angeles Employment Lawyer

Employment Attorneys in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles, also known as the City of Angels, is the second most populated city in the United States of America and the most populated city in all of California. It is also the county seat of Los Angeles County. The City of Los Angeles is estimated to be home to approximately 13 million people, while 18 million called the Greater Los Angeles Area region home in 2010.

Millions of people are drawn to Los Angeles because of its temperate Mediterranean climate, its ethnic diversity, and because it is arguably the leading city in the entertainment industry. Azadian Law Group, PC has a dedicated office in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles.

As an employee in California, you have rights; if those rights are violated, you should take action. Although Los Angeles, California, is viewed as a bustling land of opportunity where anyone can make it, sometimes a bad boss or employer can stand in the way of your dreams. Azadian Law Group, PC is an experienced employment law firm that has been helping employees fight back against wrongful termination, discrimination, and wage and hour disputes for years.

Not All Employees Are Treated Equal

Despite the city being known for its many diverse workplace opportunities, not all employees are treated equally in their place of employment. One issue that many in the Los Angeles area face is workplace retaliation, which is prohibited by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH).

Below are some common examples of when an employee may be retaliated against:

  • Refusing to comply with orders given would result in discrimination or violation of law.
  • Resisting sexual advances or intervening in order to protect others against harassment or discrimination.
  • Speaking with a supervisor or a manager about discrimination or retaliation in the workplace.
  • Filing or agreeing to be a witness to an EEOC complaint, investigation, charge, or lawsuit.
  • Ask management or other co-workers about how much they are paid to determine whether or not you are being paid discriminatory wages.

Wrongful Termination In Los Angeles, CA

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired from their job in violation of their contract or for another illegal, discriminatory policy reason. When an employee is wrongfully terminated, it can cause them the loss of past and future earned wages on top of the emotional pain and suffering that comes with the loss of a job. At Azadian Law Group, we fight for everyone, from hourly employees to executives. Our attorneys are well-versed and knowledgeable in California labor laws and will not stop until you receive the settlement that you deserve.

Discrimination

Although we live in modern times, the reality is that not everyone is free from bias and prejudice. If another individual’s bias is causing them to discriminate against you in the workplace, that is a violation of California employment laws. Employees can be discriminated against for any of the following:

  • Race or Nationality (Country of Origin): You can be discriminated against for your actual or assumed race or country of origin. This includes skin color, hair texture, or facial features.
  • Gender/Sex: Your gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation. You can also be discriminated against because of a partner or loved one’s gender identity or sexual orientation.
  • Disability: You can be discriminated against for having a physical or mental disability, especially if your employer refuses to make reasonable accommodations for you.
  • Religion: Either your organized religious practice or closely held spiritual and/or ethical beliefs. You can also be discriminated against for the religious beliefs of a partner or someone close to you.
  • Age: If you are over the age of 40, California employment laws state that you can be discriminated against for your age.

While some forms of discrimination are blatantly obvious, it is not always visible to the naked eye. Implicit discrimination is when an employer takes more disciplinary action, including personal improvement plans and verbal coaching, towards a specific employee because of a discriminatory factor, and this is also a violation of California labor laws.

If you have been discriminated against by your employer or at your place of employment, it’s time to fight back. You must find and consult with a reputable Los Angeles employment attorney immediately. Azadian Law Group is here to evaluate your case and guide you through the next steps you need to take to seek justice for yourself.

Hour and Wage Disputes

Some employers are dishonest and intentionally cheat their employees out of their hard-earned wages. For example, asking employees to get ready for their shifts without pay is against California employment laws. You should be getting paid for the time required to get ready for a shift, within reason, especially if it means having to dress in protective equipment or spend time logging on through a secure server network.

However, even in the best work environment, hour and wage disputes can occur if bookkeeping isn’t performed correctly or if your overtime isn’t taxed accordingly. Additional hour and wage disputes can occur when:

  • Employers misclassify employees as independent contractors instead of hourly wage employees. Not only does this deprive you of your overtime wages, but you will also be liable for paying additional self-employment taxes.
  • If your employer requires you to travel, but you are not reimbursed for travel time or expenses.
  • Your employer alters or changes your time clock hours.
  • Your employer assigns too large of a workload to complete during regular hours but forbids overtime hours.

The Los Angeles employment attorneys at Azadian Law Group are seasoned labor lawyers who have seen almost every type of employment law case brought to court. Do not wait to speak up if you believe that your employer is potentially cheating you out of or withholding wages. Those wages are your livelihood, and you need to get them back. You must contact one of our trustworthy employment attorneys today.

Employer Retaliation

One of the first steps to filing a wage or discrimination claim against an employer is to begin with administrative action. This means confronting the individual and filing complaints with the Human Resources (HR) department at the place of your employment and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Filing these complaints can be scary and intimidating, but you must speak up. You may be afraid that you will be retaliated against for standing up for yourself. There is a chance that it is possible, and if it does happen, you need to contact the employment attorneys at Azadian Law Group immediately.

Employer Retaliation Is Illegal

An employer may retaliate against an employee in several ways:

  • An employee may be reprimanded.
  • An employee may receive an unfair performance evaluation.
  • An employee may be threatened or have false rumors spread about them.
  • An employee may be transferred to a less desirable position.

Los Angeles wrongful termination and employment lawyers George Azadian and Ani Azadian grew up in Los Angeles and reside in Pasadena, which is in Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyers at Azadian Law Group have represented employees and executives who live or work in Los Angeles.  These range from C-level executives, medical professionals, financial sector employees, and hourly employees.  The firm’s Los Angeles Employment Lawyers have successfully handled virtually every type of employment law dispute, including cases involving wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, whistleblower, harassment, and wage & hour disputes. Our lawyers and staff love all that Los Angeles has to offer, including some of the most unique and amazing dining experiences.

Here are just a few of their favorite places to dine in Los Angeles after a long day working on wrongful termination cases for their clients:

  • Kazunori for their amazing handrolls!
  • Seoul Garden for the unique Korean barbeque.
  • Otium, for its New American cuisine, is next to The Broad Museum for contemporary art.

Another reason Los Angeles is an attractive city to live in is its numerous economic opportunities. The city has everything from entertainment, media, fashion, science, sports, and technology. The city has been ranked 6th in the Global Cities Index and 9th place in the Global Economic Power Index.

How Do You Prepare For A Consultation With A Los Angeles Employment Attorney?

The process of hiring a Los Angeles employment lawyer begins with an initial consultation. At Azadian Law Group, your initial consultation is free of charge and confidential.

This meeting allows both of us to review your case’s details. We’ll apply our knowledge of the relevant applicable laws to determine whether you have grounds to take legal action. Even if we believe you have a valid case, you’re not obligated to hire us after a consultation.

Your free case evaluation should be a productive and informative session. This is more likely to happen if you prepare for it in advance. Doing so involves:

  • Writing or recording a narrative of your experiences. When you first meet with one of the experts at our Los Angeles employment law firm, you will be describing what may be a complex situation. It’s easy to forget to include certain important details when doing so. Unfortunately, if you fail to include vital information, we may be less able to accurately assess your case’s merits. Your odds of omitting these valuable details will be much lower if you take the time to write or record a description of your experiences and bring it to your consultation.
  • Gather any documentation you may have to support your case. The specific forms said documentation may take can vary depending on the nature of the circumstances. For example, if you believe you’ve been the victim of discrimination, you may have emails that validate your suspicions. Or, perhaps you’ve received negative performance reviews after blowing the whistle on your employer’s wrongdoing. You could bring copies of positive performance reviews you consistently received before you became a whistleblower to show that you’re being retaliated against.
  • You might have the names and contact information of witnesses and other such parties who can corroborate any details of your story that an employer might disagree with. Bring this list of names if so. As long as you thoroughly trust them, strongly consider letting the people on the list know your lawyer may contact them shortly to answer questions about your case. Generally, though, you should refrain from discussing your case with anyone aside from your attorney.

The Benefits Of Hiring A Los Angeles Employment Lawyer

Building a case against an employer who’s guilty of retaliation, discrimination, or other such behavior or activities can be challenging. This is often because these cases may initially appear open to interpretation.

For instance, you called attention to unsafe practices in the workplace. In retaliation, your employer fired you.

They’re unlikely to openly admit they terminated your employment because you blew the whistle. Oddly, they’ll cite a legal reason for firing you, such as poor work performance.

This may not be the reason they let you go. However, proving they’re lying about why you were fired may require gathering numerous forms of evidence showing why their story doesn’t hold up.

Gathering this evidence may not be a task you’re prepared to handle on your own. It will likely require conducting a thorough investigation, coordinating with witnesses, and more.

These are tasks your Los Angeles employment attorney can handle. Although no ethical lawyer can guarantee a specific outcome when your case is resolved, hiring a legal expert will improve your chances of success.
