Employees need protection while in the workplace. Over the years, countless employees have faced unfair treatment and have been taken advantage of by their employers. Without protection these employees have no place to turn to. If you feel you’ve been the victim of unfair treatment by your employer, you should consider speaking with a Los Angeles Employment Attorney. Let’s take a look at how these attorneys help their clients.
One of the biggest problems employees face these days is low pay. In most cases it’s illegal to pay your employees below minimum wage. Millions of employees are forced to work part-time and full-time, and are still paid less than they should. If you feel your employer is taking advantage of you, call and speak with a Los Angeles Employment Attorney. Your attorney will work to increase your pay, as well as the pay of your peers. In some cases, employees are even receive back pay for the hours they’ve worked over the years.
In addition to unfair payment practices, more employees are being forced to work longer hours without extra pay. When you clock in overtime hours you’re suppose to receive payment for the extra time worked. However, millions of employees are working harder and are essentially getting paid less. If this is happening to you speak with an attorney. Employees are often left in a difficult position, because complaining could lead to being reprimanded by the employer. Don’t be afraid to speak up.
Discrimination is another problem many employees face as well. In some cases, employers will pick on an employee, or treat them unfairly, because they’re different. Employees can be discriminated against because of their gender, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, physical disabilities, and so on. Your employer doesn’t have the right to discriminate against you in any way. If you feel you’re being discriminated against, or you don’t feel safe because of the harassment, speak with a lawyer from Handel On The Law Productions.
