Experienced Los Angeles Employment Law Attorneys
Employment laws can be confusing, which is why our employment law attorneys provide the following resources that can help answer many of the most common employment questions we receive.
Arbitration of Employment Disputes
Employment lawsuits often turn out to be protracted and expensive. Many times, after all the legal acrobatics, the verdict may put both the parties dissatisfied. This is why some parties may agree upon arbitration as a means of dispute redressal for early and economical resolution of employment disputes. By contacting an employment lawyer in Los Angeles, you can potentially speed up the arbitration process.
Breach of Contract Laws in California
If you are involved in a business agreement, one of the first things to determine is whether the promise or agreement at issue will be considered an enforceable contract under the law. While contracts usually involve promises to do something (or refrain from doing something), not all promises are contracts. How does the law determine which promises are enforceable contracts and which are not?
California Fair Employment and Housing Act
Discrimination in the workplace can be emotionally devastating, and it can also result in long-term negative effects on your work and career opportunities. To protect employees from harmful workplace discrimination, the state of California has the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
California Family Rights Act
The California Family Rights Acts (CFRA) intends to give employees and business owners important rights when serious medical conditions appear or during pregnancy or childbirth. The state law amends the rights of requirements of individuals taking leave for medical issues, and is similar to the Federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). CFRA can significantly affect California families.
