Expert Long Beach Employment Lawyer: Your Advocate for Workplace Justice

What Are My Employment Rights?

California boasts some of the nation’s most extensive and progressive employment laws, providing robust worker protections. Additionally, federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) complement California's legal framework, offering additional layers of worker protection. At Starpoint Law, we have in-depth knowledge of these laws, enabling us to provide comprehensive legal assistance tailored to your needs.

Your rights and protections under both state and federal law include:

  • Anti-discrimination protections—California law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other protected characteristics. We can help you navigate discrimination claims and ensure your employer upholds these rights;
  • Harassment-free workplace—you have the right to work in an environment free from harassment, including sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and retaliation for reporting harassment. We can assist victims of harassment in seeking justice and holding employers accountable;
  • Fair wages and overtime pay—under California law, employees must receive fair wages for all hours worked, including overtime pay for hours worked beyond the standard 40-hour workweek. We can help you pursue wage and hour claims if your employer has violated these laws;
  • Family and medical leave—California provides various protections for employees who need time off for family or medical reasons, including the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). We can help you understand your rights and navigate leave-related issues.

California employees must understand the state’s employment laws to advocate for themselves and ensure a lawful workplace. Our experienced employment lawyers can explain these rights and how they apply and help ensure your employer abides by them.
