EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION & OTHER UNLAWFUL TREATMENT OF EMPLOYEES
Employment Discrimination Lawsuits: Discrimination in the workplace takes many forms: race, sex, gender, pregnancy, disability, language, or religion. California and federal laws protect employees from discrimination in the workplace and the Perrin Law Group will aggressively and effectively represent you throughout the legal proceeding . If you have been experienced employment discrimination, been discharged from employment or refused a promotion due to your disability, then you may be entitled to compensation for lost salary, incentives, emotional distress and punitive damages.The stakes can be high: employees who experience discrimination can sometimes win enormous awards in court with the assistance of an experienced employment lawyer from the Perrin Law Group.
Wrongful Termination Lawsuits: Like discrimination, wrongful or illegal terminations are far too common in the modern work environment. A wrongful termination may involve the employer’s retaliation for someone speaking up about discrimination in the workplace, after an employee is injured on the job, or when an employee discloses that she is pregnant. Call Perrin Law Group, a full service employment lawyer, for a free consultation to find out more about wrongful termination lawsuits and whether or not you have a case.
California Overtime Pay : Overtime pay laws protect employees from being forced to work extensive hours without additional compensation. But the state and federal regulations of overtime are complex and often confusing, and employers often misclassify employees, intentionally or accidentally, to avoid paying overtime wages. Common issues in overtime cases include whether or not an employee is exempt from the overtime requirements, an independent contractor, the differing rules applicable to certain industries or occupations and/or other wage and hour violations such as failing to reimburse business expenses and/or pay for non-commute travel time. In light of the complex and constantly evolving nature of the wage and overtime laws, contact the Perrin Law Group today for your free consultation.
Whistleblower Claims/Retaliation: Our office handles whistleblower claims when employees uncover and report (or refuse to participate in) illegal corporate activity, or when employers take retaliatory actions against California whistleblower employees, including those protected under state and federal whistleblower laws. Unfortunately, a significant number of employers believe they can fire or take some other adverse action against the person who courageously reported or fails to participate in illegal conduct to convey the message to the other employees that acts like reporting the company’s unlawful conduct or filing complaints against discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated. Contact the Perrin Law Group to stand up for your rights today.
Disability Discrimination: Unfortunately, disability discrimination continues to be on the rise in California and throughout the nation due to our aging population and the economy which has unfortunately caused employees to delay retirement. Older workers frequently develop disabilities which entitle them to protection under the laws. All workers, regardless of disability or limitations, should be allowed to put their skills to work for the job that they were employed to do. By law, an employer is required to provide reasonable accommodations for any disabled employees in order to help facilitate that employee’s success. If an employer does not make reasonable workplace accommodations, it is committing an illegal employment action and must be held responsible. Our firm is deeply committed to the rights of disabled employees as Mr. Perrin has been disabled since childhood. We are therefore dedicated to seeing that disabled individuals are treated fairly and provided for according to the state and federal laws that protect the disabled govern how disabled such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
