Upland, California is located just east of Los Angeles at the foot of San Gabriel Mountains. Its nearly 74,000 citizens enjoy plentiful recreational activities, along with a relatively thriving economy. Upland is home to large and small companies alike, with some of the largest employers including retail chains, hospitals, and warehouses.
Regardless of the city in which they operate, all employers must comply with the California Fair Employment and Housing Act that outlines the legalities of employment law. The reality is that even though employers are aware of these laws, it does not always mean they uphold them. As experienced Upland employment law attorneys, we at Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP are all too aware of different types of unlawful conduct that employers often engage in. In the cases where companies have breached the employment laws, our Upland employment attorneys vigorously represent the employees to secure the best results possible.
Employees who suffer from employment discrimination are able to pursue damages, and it is our duty as experienced Upland employment discrimination attorneys to help them understand their rights and options.
If you have experienced discrimination in any of the following categories, we can help:
- Physical or Mental Disability
Discrimination can be very well hidden, and sometimes can only be exposed by exploring your legal options. At Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP we have helped numerous individuals stand up for their rights and achieve positive results on their behalf.
Being sexually harassed in the workplace may not be the reflection of the culture your employer is trying to portray. However, it is their responsibility to ensure you feel safe, and are not suffering from abuse by employees, supervisors, or even visitors. When the employers fail in this area, especially when they allow the behavior to continue, it is important that they are held responsible for their actions – or direct inaction.
Our employment law attorneys in Upland will focus on your sexual harassment case with experience, diligence and skill. Sexual harassment can happen to men and women and can be verbal, physical or both.
If someone in your company has made unwanted sexual advances in your direction or solicited sexual favors for any reason, it is time for you to get help. No one should feel as if their worth has been diminished by sexual harassment in the workplace. Our Upland sexual harassment attorneys can help you obtain justice by holding accountable those responsible for harassing you and for failing to stop and punish the harasser(s).
Being released from a job can be devastating to not only your self-esteem and morale but also your financial position. When you are wrongfully terminated, the sting of the occasion can be overwhelming.
At Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP we work zealously to help victims of wrongful termination build a case against their employers. A number of individuals believe they know why they were fired but may not have the proof they need to take their case before a judge. Our experienced Upland wrongful termination attorneys at Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP will help explain the legal side of wrongful termination while walking you through the process of making a case against your former company.
While not all wrongful termination cases are based on discrimination, those cases are exceptionally delicate and unsettling. It is not okay for your employer to discriminate against you in violation of California law, and firing based on discriminatory reasons is especially improper.
In addition to discrimination, other wrongful termination cases can include, but are not limited to:
- Contract Violations
- Retaliation for Bringing Wrongdoing to Light
- Refusal to Perform an Illegal Act
- Employer’s Disregard for Termination Policies
If you have lost your job, and feel that you were wrongfully terminated, contact our attorneys today to understand your rights and discuss courses of action that may be available.
Wage and Hour Violations
Certainly, all fair-minded persons can agree that employees deserve to be fully compensated for all of their time and work. As logical as this may seem, some employers take advantage of their employees by underpaying them, by not paying them for all hours worked, by taking unlawful wage deductions, or by misclassifying their employees altogether as someone else, such as “independent contractors” or managers.
Each of these practices is illegal, and every employer in the State of California is or should be aware of it. If you believe you have been a victim of wage and hour violations, contact our Upland employment law attorneys today to receive the full legal advice you need. We will explore your case from beginning to end to help you understand exactly what your employer has done wrong and if and how you can seek recovery through the courts.
