Employment Law

Despite laws protecting employee rights, employment law violations occur all too often. Discrimination in the workplace continues to be widespread and sexual harassment remains pervasive in many work environments. In addition, violation of labor laws relating to payment of wage, overtime compensation and meal and rest breaks are still all too common.

California and federal employment laws provide employees with various rights and remedies, designed to prevent such violations. The employment rights 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 law deals with the rights and obligations between an employee and employer, or in some cases, a former employee or a job applicant. Some of the most common issues involved in labor and employment law are as follows:

Common Employment Law Issues
  • Employment discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
