 What Is Employment Law?

Employment law is a collection of federal and state regulations designed to govern the dynamic and ever-changing relationships between employers and employees. These laws safeguard employee rights while defining employer obligations.

Moreover, they cover various aspects of employment, including recruitment and termination procedures, provisions for safe working environments, employee benefits, and mechanisms for resolving workplace disputes. Adhering to California and federal regulations protects employees and employers and fosters a fair and equitable workplace environment.

Employment law also forms the bedrock of fair contract negotiations and collective bargaining processes. Skilled employment lawyers who are well-versed in contract law are essential in scrutinizing employment agreements.

They can ensure that contract terms related to compensation, benefits, job responsibilities, and other pertinent aspects are fair and protect employees’s rights throughout their tenure, from recruitment to retirement.

What Types of Employment Law Claims Does a Hollywood Employment Lawyer at Starpoint Law Handle?

Starpoint Law boasts extensive experience in a diverse array of employment law matters. Below are examples of claims we commonly handle.

Employment Contracts

Employment contracts lay out the terms and conditions of employment, including compensation, benefits, job duties, and termination procedures. Our advocates review and negotiate employment contracts with an eye toward beneficial terms and conditions to safeguard employees’s rights and ensure fair treatment in the workplace.

Wage and Hour Disputes

Wage and hour disputes encompass various issues, from employee misclassification and unpaid wages concerns to an employer’s failure to adhere to California’s mandated minimum wage and overtime regulations. Additionally, these disputes encompass violations related to meal and rest breaks and improper pay stub reporting.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment includes unwelcome behaviors such as unwanted sexual advances, solicitation of sexual favors, or verbal and physical conduct of a sexual nature that disrupts the work environment. Prolonged instances of sexual harassment can also create a hostile work environment, which is another form of actionable harassment.

Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination manifests in various forms, including unjust firings and promotion denials based on protected characteristics like race, gender, age, disability, religion, or other legally safeguarded attributes. These workplace biases can impede an employee’s career advancement and mental well-being.

Wrongful Termination

While most hourly California employment is at will, meaning an employer can fire an employee for any lawful reason, wrongful termination arises when an employer dismisses an employee unlawfully. Instances of wrongful termination include retaliatory firing following whistleblowing or when termination breaches a legally binding employment contract.

Family and Medical Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and similar state laws, like the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), provide eligible employees with job-protected leave for qualified medical and family reasons. Our team ensures employers comply with FMLA regulations and handles disputes related to denying or interfering with employees’s FMLA and CFRA rights.

What Laws Protect Hollywood Employees?

In Hollywood, various federal and state laws aim to ensure fair treatment and safeguard employee equity in the workplace. Federal statutes such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act tackle workplace discrimination head-on. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets standards for wages and overtime, while the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) prioritizes workplace safety. Additionally, whistleblower protections and laws like the FMLA bolster employee rights.

On the state level, California boasts a robust set of employment laws that afford workers extensive protections. For instance, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (CFHA) prohibits discrimination against job applicants and employees based on various protected classes, including gender, race, age, and disability status. Similarly, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) guarantees job-protected leave for employees dealing with their own or a family member's serious health condition or for the birth of a child.

Recent legislative efforts in California have expanded employee protections even further. For example, California’s Congress implemented measures to reclassify workers who were wrongly labeled independent contractors, ensuring they received proper benefits and protections.

Furthermore, new laws address issues such as discrimination based on hairstyle, extend workers' compensation benefits to first responders experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder, and establish updated guidelines for job equality and minimum wages.
