Employment Law

Knowing and Protecting Employee Rights

There is a lot of injustice in the workplace. Employees face discrimination or even harassment. Wage and hour laws are violated. Proving that an employment law violation has taken place can be tough, but at Girardi | Keese, our lawyers know how to get to the truth and challenge big companies in court.

Are layoffs fair? Are employees paid according to law?

In an economic downturn, there are layoffs. If there is a pattern of laying off certain classes of employees, the employer may be breaking the law. A difficult economy puts employees at a disadvantage. They may not report unfair wage and hour practices for fear of losing their jobs.

Through discovery and trial, our attorneys investigate discrimination claims, hostile work environments, failure to pay overtime and wage and hour disputes, and we hold employers accountable when they fail to treat employees fairly.

Girardi | Keese lawyers represent employment law clients in California and nationwide.
