Employee Rights in Fresno

California labor and employment laws protect workers from unfair treatment or discrimination in the workplace. As an employee in Fresno, you have a right to fair pay, fair and free contracts, a safe and healthy environment, and a discrimination-free workplace. Unfortunately, not all employers abide by this law. Some employers still violate these laws, and when confronted about the violation, threaten the claimant’s job.

If your employer fails to protect your rights or violates them, you may have a right to take legal action against the employer. At Limonjyan Law Group, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to walk you through your legal journey and guarantee the most desirable results.

Wrongful Termination Actions

If you have been fired from your job due to medical reasons, discrimination, or retaliation for whistleblowing, you can file a wrongful termination claim. In addition, if you’re employer violates your employment contract, and you get fired for confronting the situation, you are legally within your rights to file a claim. 

Although the law allows employers to fire workers at will for any reason, there are a few exceptions to this rule, which include retaliation, contract violations, discrimination, and more. If your employer wrongfully terminated your employment, our Fresno employment attorneys can help you build a winning case against your employer.

Whistleblower Protections

Under the Department of Labor’s whistleblower protection laws, an employer is prohibited from taking any adverse actions against employees, like demoting, firing, reducing pay, or denying promotion or overtime, for participating in practices protected by OSHA’s whistleblower laws. 

If your employer retaliates against you for exercising your rights, contact our Fresno Employment lawyer today. According to California law, if your employer does the following, they violate OSHA’S whistleblower law: 

  • An employer may not make, adopt, or enforce any rule, regulation, or policy preventing an employee from being a whistleblower.
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee who is a whistleblower.
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee for refusing to participate in an activity that would result in a violation of a state or federal statute or a violation or noncompliance with a state or federal rule or regulation.
  • An employer may not retaliate against an employee for having exercised his or her rights as a whistleblower in any former employment.

Resolving Claims of Unpaid Wages

The rules and regulations surrounding wage and hour violations are complicated, but with an experienced lawyer, resolving a claim of unpaid wages is much more digestible. The legal team at Limonjyan Law Group can help protect your rights and ensure you receive the correct compensation you are entitled to.

Workplace Harassment

Workplace harassment is illegal in Fresno, but unfortunately, it happens all the time. Workplace harassment takes many forms and can include sexual harassment, racial harassment, ageism, gender identity, and disability harassment. If you are treated unfairly at your workplace because of your characteristics, we can help protect your rights.
