The Basis of Employment Rights
Let Our Los Angeles Employment Lawyer Fight for Your Justice!
Most of us depend on our jobs to earn a living and support ourselves and our families. As such, employers have a significant amount of power over us, which leaves us vulnerable to the decisions they make and the conditions they provide. Fortunately, there are state and federal legislation which seek to ensure that employees are not mistreated.
At Alan Burton Newman, PLC, we are dedicated to ensuring that your rights as an employee are upheld. Our LA employment law attorney wants you to understand these rights so that you can recognize when you are being treated unjustly and take necessary action. We want to help you face your employer and hold them to the standards of workplace management set by the government.
What Are My Rights as an Employee?
In the United States, including California, the employee is considered an "at-will" employee. As a result, you can be terminated at any time at the employer's discretion. However, some laws protect you from the treatment you receive while employed.
Both the federal and California state government protects the employee against the following:
- Harassment in the workplace
- Discrimination in the workplace
- Failure to pay proper wages
- Failure to provide proper breaks
- Failure to grant leave of absences for pregnancy and serious illnesses
These rights, however, are limited to specific applications. California law gives far wider protection to employees than federal law. Also, state courts are more receptive to employee claims than federal courts. However, there must be evidence that supports claims made by an employee. California courts may be more receptive, but they still require a strong case such as the one Alan Burton Newman can build for you.
