Employment & Labor Law

Employment and Labor law involves regulations and protections related to workplace behavior. This encompasses not only words and inappropriate conduct, but also adverse employment actions, such as: wrongful termination, pay-cuts, illegitimate lay-off, demotions, and failure to promote. California and Federal law prohibit behavior in the workplace that violates fundamental public policy, such as harassment, discrimination and retaliation based on:

  • Age (40 and over)
  • Ancestry
  • Color
  • Religious Creed (including religious dress and grooming practices)
  • Denial of Family and Medical Care Leave

  • Gender, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Whistle-Blower
