Employment Law Violations

The employment law attorneys at Setareh Law Group have a wide breadth of experience representing clients with a variety of employment claims. Here are a few of the common claims we pursue:

Wage and Hour Violations: Class actions for wage and hour violations make up a large portion of Setareh Law Group employment cases. These include a range of labor code violations like failure to provide meal and rest breaks, failure to pay minimum wage or overtime wages, failure to reimburse business expenses, and many more. Did you know that non-exempt hourly employees are entitled to an uninterrupted 30-min meal break for every five hours of work? And a ten-minute paid rest break for every four hours? If you believe your employer is not paying you properly, is committing wage theft, or otherwise has violated wage and hour laws, call Setareh Law Group for a free consultation to determine if you have any potential employment law claims!

FCRA Actions: Another common claim we bring is for violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”). The relevant portion of this law governs the disclosures employees sign authorizing their employers to run background checks on them. This is a technical claim and requires the eyes of a trained employment attorney, so consider calling Setareh Law Group if your employer ran a background check on you when you applied for the job.

Discrimination and Harassment: Setareh Law Group also specializes in lawsuits for discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Both California and Federal laws protect workers against workplace discrimination and harassment based on protected characteristics like race, ethnicity, age, sex, and more. Let Setareh Law Group employment attorneys help you stand up to your discriminatory employer!
Whistleblowing / Retaliation: Retaliation occurs when an employee reports their employer’s alleged illegal activity either to a supervisor at work or to government agency, and then the employer terminates, demotes, reduces the pay of, or otherwise acts adversely to the employee. Our employment lawyers are experts in recognizing retaliation and litigating these cases.

Wrongful Termination: Finally, a significant portion of employment law cases are for wrongful termination. While most employees work “at-will” in the United States, so they can be terminated whenever and for whatever reason, there are exceptions that are considered “illegal” reasons for termination. These include discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Setareh Law Group attorneys are ready and able to seek justice for our clients who experienced wrongful termination.
