California’s Labor Code is among the most employee-friendly in the nation. Combined with federal law, California law offers a range of protections and rights to workers.

Unfortunately, employers can and do violate such laws in many ways. If a current or former employer has done so, and you have been negatively affected as a result, you can take legal action to hold them accountable. Depending on the circumstance, filing a claim or lawsuit against an employer can allow you to recover financial compensation, be reinstated to a job from which you were wrongfully fired, and more.

Just be aware that virtually all employment law cases are complex. You need legal assistance from qualified professionals when taking action against an employer. Your odds of winning your case will be much greater with a lawyer on your side.

At JML Law, our Oakland, CA employment law attorneys believe passionately in protecting the rights of workers in our state. Get in touch with us if you believe your employer’s treatment of you qualifies as a violation of the law.
