Common Tulare County Employment Disputes

While both state and federal law provide important rights to employees, California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) provides much greater protection than the various federal employment laws. Under California law, the following are among the most common employment law claims.

Discrimination — If you are treated unfairly at work because of your race, gender, age, religion, or another protected characteristic, you may have a discrimination claim. This includes being passed over for promotions or being given worse job assignments because of who you are.

Sexual HarassmentSexual harassment involves unwanted advances, comments, or behavior of a sexual nature. If a coworker or boss makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe because of inappropriate comments or actions, this may be sexual harassment.

Wrongful Termination — If you are fired from your job for illegal reasons, such as retaliation for reporting discrimination or refusing to do something illegal, you might have a wrongful termination claim. This type of claim addresses unfair job loss.

Wage & HourWage and hour claims arise when an employer does not pay you the wages you are owed, including overtime pay, or if they make you work off the clock. These claims ensure that you are compensated fairly for your time and work.

Class Action Claims Class action claims involve a group of employees who are treated similarly unfairly by the same employer. This can include widespread issues like unpaid wages or systematic discrimination affecting many workers.

If you believe you may have one of these employment claims, it’s important to consult with a Tulare County employment lawyer to understand your rights and options.
