Do you need an attorney because of a legal matter relating to Employment, Discrimination or Wrongful Termination?
Contact us today. We can help.
We live in difficult economic times and nearly everyday we read in the newspapers and on the Internet about another company laying off employees in the name of efficiency, competitiveness or market conditions. The Riverside County community has been hit harder than many communities across the nation.
Not every termination is justified and employees still have rights. The California and U.S. Constitutions protect employees from being discriminated against under certain circumstances. In addition, harassment in the workplace is still common and sometimes actionable.
If you are an employer contemplating a termination or some other human resources issue, you need to make sure that you comply with all of the local, California and federal laws protecting employees. Tax withholding requirements and overtime issues arise when employers incorrectly classify a worker as an independent contractor when under law the worker would be more correctly classified as an employee.
Whether you are an employee or an employer, you want to be sure you meet with a qualified labor or employment lawyer who has the experience to help.
