However, when an employer doesn’t follow employment regulations, or a supervisor or coworker’s actions create a hostile environment, the workplace can quickly become an uncomfortable place.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Employment law is a complex area of practice, with numerous claims and procedures to handle different situations. Trying to comb through that information on your own can be a time-consuming process that makes it difficult to recover your compensation. To make handling your own legal matters even more of a challenge, if you’re facing off against your employer, they will likely have an attorney to represent their side of the claim. Working with an attorney gives you the resources, knowledge, and skill you need to protect your rights.
Who Is Liable?
The liable party in your claim will depend on what type of case you have. California law allows not only individual supervisors to be responsible for their discriminatory actions, but also any responsible coworkers. In most cases, employers are also vicariously liable for the actions of their employees.
Your case may involve one or several liable parties from which you may seek compensation. Upon an evaluation of your case, we will help you determine the liable party and investigate to provide proof of fault if necessary.
What Damages Can You Recover?
The specific recoverable damages vary depending on the scope of your claim. Common damages awarded in employment law cases include:
- Financial damages, such as lost wages and benefits.
- Pain and suffering, for any emotional stress sustained because of your claim.
- Punitive damages ordered by the court to discourage repeat instances of employment law violations.
Working with an attorney can help you recover the full potential scope of your rightful compensation.
