Long Beach employment attorney/lawyer

Legal disputes often arise between employers and their employees across all industries. While an organization’s internal conflict resolution channels can serve as remedial processes for some disputes, others escalate to more serious legal action.

Our firm has the resources and experience to handle the most challenging civil litigation for an employment dispute.

Benefits of Legal Counsel for Your Employment Law Case

Navigating any civil claim without legal counsel is very risky. Many people who experience civil damages are unaware of their options for legal recourse. Some are afraid of what taking legal action entails, especially employees who are likely to fear for their jobs if they must file cases against their employers. Working with an experienced Long Beach employment attorney means you can approach your case with peace of mind. The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters have experience handling a wide range of employment disputes and can leverage this experience in your case.

Your legal team can assist you with any EEOC claims you must file before helping you compile your civil case. Many people facing complex employment disputes are unaware of the damages they can claim from the defendants in their cases. Employment-related legal matters often entail economic losses alongside extensive pain and suffering. When employers mistreat their employees or when employees experience adverse treatment from others in their workplace with no assistance from their supervisors, this can be emotionally damaging and incredibly stressful. These experiences can also lead to lost income and benefits, missed opportunities for promotion, and various other damages.

An experienced Long Beach employment lawyer can help clients maximize the recovery they obtain from their successful legal action. At The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters, we take time to learn as much as possible about each client’s unique situation, helping the client develop an individually tailored legal strategy for their case. Ultimately, you are not only more likely to succeed with an employment case with the help of an attorney but also more likely to maximize the outcome.

Types of Employment Cases We Take

When you need legal counsel for an employment-related legal dispute, it is vital to find an attorney who has extensive overall experience with employment law and specific experience handling cases like yours. The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters only represents employees facing a wide range of employment disputes, including:

  • Wage and hour violations. California employers must adhere to state law regarding pay for their employees. Failure to meet the state’s minimum wage law, failure to pay overtime, or failure to provide accurate pay stubs are just a few examples of employer wage and hour violations that can easily lead to legal disputes. These cases often require extensive review of an employee’s pay receipts and materials from their employer to determine how much the employee is rightfully owed.
  • Discrimination. It is illegal for any employer to base job decisions on an employee’s or applicant’s race, religion, age, sex, medical status, or other protected personal qualities. When employees in Long Beach experience workplace discrimination, they must file claims to the EEOC before taking legal action against their employers.
  • Sexual harassment. Unfortunately, many Americans experience various forms of sexual harassment in their workplaces. These cases require EEOC proceedings and can potentially lead to criminal prosecution of the defendant in question. Our firm can help clients file their EEOC claim for sexual harassment, gather any evidence they may need to substantiate their claim, and determine the full scope of their claimable damages.
  • Wrongful termination. California enforces an at-will employment law, meaning any work relationship between an employer and an employee exists at the will of both parties. This allows either party to end the work relationship at any time, with or without prior warning and without citing a specific reason. Unfortunately, some employers attempt to use the at-will employment law to fire employees for illegal reasons. Therefore, any discriminatory or otherwise unlawful firing is a wrongful termination.

It’s common for employment disputes to entail more than one type of EEOC violation, such as a wrongful termination conducted based on sexual harassment or racial discrimination. Employees faced with such experiences often feel isolated and distressed, unable to determine the best legal options that may ensure accountability. Working with an experienced Long Beach employment attorney is the best option in this situation.
