Employment Law

Employment Law

The law does not allow employers to harass or discriminate against people because of certain qualities, called “protected classes.”  These include race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or veteran or military status.  Unlawful conduct can be shown in a variety of ways.  Contact one of our attorneys today to determine if your employer has violated the law.

The attorneys at the Rashtian Law Group also have experience in the following types of cases:

  • Harassment: Sexual harassment is the most common form of harassment, but people also face harassment because of their race, pregnancy status, political activities such as union organizing, even for their work status as a contractor. It also includes victims of hostile work environments based on a protected class.

  • Discrimination, including based on disability, pregnancy, race, national origin, sexual orientation or any other protected classification. 

  • Retaliation for reporting wrongful conduct or engaging in a protected activity.

  • Wrongful Termination: This includes violations of public policy such as being terminated for reporting illegal or fraudulent company activity or practices to one’s supervisor.

  • Wage and Hour Violations, including misclassification, missed meal or break periods, waiting time penalties, and failure to pay overtime.

  • Violation of Family and Medical Leave Law: We provide legal advice and representation to employees who have been denied leave for family and medical reasons including pregnancy.

  • Unsafe Workplace Conditions.

  • Whistleblower Protections.
