Employment Law

California Labor/Employment Law Attorneys

If you have been discriminated, sexually harassed or retaliated against, you may be entitled to bring a claim or lawsuit against your employer or co-worker, for compensation for your physical and psychological injuries along with compensation for loss of wages and loss of future earnings. Oaks Law Firm is here to assist you with your case.

Please note that California is an “at will” employment state, meaning that typically an employee can be terminated without good cause.  However, there are several exceptions to this rule:  if you had a written employment contract, were retaliated against, or were discriminated against based on your gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religious beliefs, or health condition.  You can also bring a claim if you were sexually harassed by your co-worker while on the job.  If successful, you could be entitled to receive compensation for your lost earnings, psychological damages, and/or other damages.

You and your co-workers may be entitled to wages and penalties from your employer for unpaid overtime, meal breaks and rest periods.

We handle cases involving:

  • Wrongful Termination
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Retaliation
  • Failure to Accommodate a Disability

  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or California Family Rights Act (CFRA) violations
