Do I Need
An Employment Lawyer?
It depends. Some employers require you to first attempt to resolve a problem by speaking with your supervisor, manager, or human resources director. Failing to do so may be detrimental to your claim. In other cases, however, you may need to hire a lawyer immediately.
Employees in California have many rights and protections. Unfortunately, most people don’t know what these rights are or how to enforce them. Complicating matters further is that there are certain critical steps that an employee must take to enforce those rights. If these steps are not taken within the allotted amount of time, an employment claim may be forever barred. This is why it is so important that an aggrieved employee hire an experienced attorney to help them navigate employment or labor problems.
Because of the many laws that confer rights and protections to California employees, and the complexity of these laws, many employers may not know they are doing something wrongful. Others, don’t care. Many of these employers also know that their employees will keep quiet about their wrongful conduct for fear of losing their jobs. Whether your employer is breaking the law inadvertently or knowingly, there are several remedies, including monetary compensation, that may be available to you.
Employment and labor law is very detail-driven and can be very difficult to navigate. This includes evaluating whether conduct by an employer is illegal. Conduct that violates employment laws may be very subtle and oftentimes employees are unaware that such conduct is illegal at all. On the other hand, not all unfair treatment or hurtful actions, no matter how egregious, are illegal. For example, it is not necessarily illegal for an employer to fire you because the employer doesn’t “like” you. It may be illegal, however, if the reason your employer doesn’t like you is because you are of a certain race.
