Our Employment Law Practice Areas
At Urbanic & Associates, Inc., our employment law practice is dedicated to providing California workers with effective, aggressive legal advocacy. Here’s a look at the cases we handle.
Although California is an “at will” employment state, you as an employee still have rights – and when your employer violates these rights by wrongfully firing you, you can hold your employer accountable in civil court. This page provides some common examples of wrongful termination, as well as some important information regarding how the Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Lawyers at Urbanic & Associates can help.
Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against you based on your ethnic makeup, gender, age, national origin, medical condition, and need for medical leave. Despite these laws – and the penalties employers can face for violating them, workplace discrimination still occurs all too often, violating employees’ rights and potentially impacting them on a financial and/or psychological level.
When any type of workplace discrimination occurs, the Los Angeles Discrimination attorneys at Urbanic & Associates will be ready to fight for your rights, helping you hold your employer accountable in any legal setting.
While workplace harassment can come in many forms, this harassment is illegal when it creates a hostile or offensive work environment for employees. In fact, unlike some other types of employment cases, workplace harassment cases can arise even if the subjects or victims of it have not experienced a specific economic loss.
If you believe that you have been the target of workplace harassment, it’s time to take action and contact the Los Angeles Harassment attorneys at Urbanic & Associates. They are ready to help you stand up to your employer and fight back.
Wage & Hour Claims
California wage and hour regulations require that employers fairly compensate workers for their labor while providing them with adequate rest and meal breaks. When employers violate these laws, you as a California worker can sue your employer for back pay and additional damages.
You can turn to the experienced Los Angeles Employment attorneys at Urbanic & Associates for effective help standing up to an employer and obtaining the compensation you likely deserve.
Don’t be afraid to stand up and blow the whistle on your employer’s illegal conduct. California law offers protection to whistleblowers. If you’ve been retaliated against for complaining about your employer’s illegal activity, we want to help.
Los Angeles Whistleblower attorneys at Urbanic & Associates are ready to stand up for whistleblowers’ rights and help them secure the justice and remedies to which they are entitled.
Employers are legally prohibited from retaliating against employees who file discrimination or harassment claims against them. It’s also illegal for employers to retaliate against whistleblowers.
Should employers violate these laws and retaliate against workers by firing them, demoting them, etc., Los Angeles Retaliation attorneys at Urbanic & Associates will be ready to help these workers hold their employers accountable.
Disability Discrimation & Accomodations
The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) offers broader protections to disabled workers than federal laws. While the FEHA specifically prohibits workplace discrimination based on employees’ physical and mental disabilities, it also requires that employers make reasonable accommodations for disabled workers.
When employers violate the FEHA and, in doing so, compromise disabled workers’ rights, these workers can rely on Los Angeles Discrimination attorneys at Urbanic & Associates to fight for their rights and help them succeed in their financial recovery.
