An experienced attorney can help you understand your rights under federal and California laws. Employment and labor laws set the legal parameters for employment contracts, torts, equal employment opportunities, wages and hours, health and safety, and employee benefits, along with union organization and collective bargaining.  To fight illegal employer practices, you need someone to stand up for you against the abusive practices of your employer.  If you have been denied wagesor break periodsdiscriminated against or sexually harassed, the attorneys at Kingsley & Kingsley are experienced in handling such claims.

Employers in large cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles sometimes violate employment laws through failure to pay the minimum wage, intentional employee misclassification, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, or unfair employment practices that discriminate. Generally, the first step an employee must take is to report the violation to the appropriate state or federal regulatory authority, such as the EEOC, FEHC, or a labor union representative. A labor lawyer at our firm can represent you in administrative hearings before the EEOC or FEHC, in mediation or arbitration hearings, or through litigation, as necessary.

Consulting an experienced Los Angeles employment lawyer is an effective means for dealing with unfair treatment in the workplace.
