Employment & Civil Rights Lawyers

Los Angeles Employment Lawyers

Despite laws protecting employee rights, employment law violations occur all too often. Discrimination continues to be widespread while sexual harassment remains pervasive in many work environments. Violation of labor laws relating to payment of wages, overtime compensation and meal and rest breaks are still too common. As a result, employees often find themselves in the midst of an employment dispute. 

California and federal employment laws provide employees with various rights and remedies to address employment law violations. The experienced Los Angeles Employment Lawyers at Kaplan Weiss LLP can help you determine whether you have a legal right to a recovery when you believe your employer has treated you unlawfully.

  • Employment Discrimination
  • Unpaid Wages

  • Workplace Harassment
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Wage Discrimination
  • Missed Meal or Rest Breaks
