Fontana Employment Law and Consumer Attorneys
With just over 203,000 residents, Fontana is the second most populated city in San Bernardino County, and the 20th largest in the state of California. The city is home to many large retails chains, trucking industries, industrial equipment centers, and distribution centers for major companies such as Toyota, Target, etc. Fontana also has numerous small manufacturers and auto dealerships. While the city’s economy may benefit from the established employers, companies sometimes overlook employee complaints or take advantage of workers in order to maximize profits.
The attorneys at Broslavsky & Weinman are committed to protecting the rights of Fontana employees across all different industries and types of employers, from giant corporations to small private companies. We walk our clients through their rights, and help them understand their case as it exists in the eyes of the law and the courts. Once we take on a case, we vigorously pursue your claims and have a very high success rate of obtaining recovery and achieving favorable results for our clients.
California is home to some of the strictest anti-discrimination laws in the United States. Discrimination includes situations in which an employer terminates, demotes, harasses, or otherwise mistreats an employee. If you feel that you or have been discriminated against in the workplace for any of the following reasons, you may have a case against your employer:
- Physical or Mental Disability
Our attorney group will help you defend your rights against this unsavory treatment while holding your employer responsible for their violations.
Not surprisingly, employers almost never outright admit to discrimination, and typically seek to cover up termination or other adverse actions by offering alternative explanations for their decision such as “poor performance” or “downsizing.” The employment discrimination attorneys at Broslavsky & Weinman are skilled at exposing the reasons offered by the employers as fraudulent or non-credible pretexts and uncovering discriminatory intent.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment cases are especially delicate as the very nature of sexual harassment is a sensitive subject. However, whether you are female or male, there is absolutely no shame in holding your employer responsible for their part in sexual harassment. Our Fontana attorneys have the experience and skills necessary to pursue these cases as effectively, quickly and efficiently as possible and allow victims of sexual harassment to move forward with their lives.
Sexual harassment can occur verbally or physically. Verbal harassment can take many forms, including unwanted sexual advances, lewd comments, gestures of a sexual nature, displaying suggestive or graphic images, etc. Even if you are not certain whether you have a claim or how to best proceed, our lawyers are always available to discuss your specific situation with you and decide on best options going forward.
Being let go from a job can be devastating. In addition to creating feelings of injustice and betrayal, getting fired or being laid off can lead to financial uncertainty, stress, and anxiety. With current low wages across many industries and rising prices, many workers find it hard enough to pay the bills and achieve financial security even when they have a job, let alone when they become unemployed.
Many firings happen for illegal reasons. Some of the most common illegal reasons can include:
- Discrimination (including your age, race, gender, disability)
- Retaliation for protesting unlawful working conditions (underpayment of wages, unsafe working conditions, etc.)
- Retaliation for whistleblowing, i.e. complaining about or reporting employer’s illegal conduct
- Breach of contract
When these cases occur, our attorneys can help you pursue compensation and hold your former employer responsible for breaking employment laws.
Wage and Hour Violations
No matter which industry you work in, it is important that your employer is following the California laws that are in place to ensure you are paid properly. Our office pursues employers who fail to pay their workers all wages that are due.
Unlawful wage and hour practices can include, but are not limited to:
- Failure to pay for all time on the job (overtime, pre-shift and post-shift tasks such as putting on protective gear or going through security lines, some on-call time)
- Unauthorized wage deductions
- Failure to reimburse for all expenses
- Missed meal and rest breaks
- Failure to pay at least minimum wage for each hour worked
- Misclassifying employees as independent contractors
- Misclassifying employees as exempt
Wage and hour violations are not always easy to spot and sometimes employees don’t even realize they have a wage claim until they speak to an attorney.
Our attorneys have a proven track record in helping workers who suffer from employment law violations. Call us at (909) 551-4455 or email us to discuss your employment issues and potential claims.
