Should I hire an employment lawyer?
When you believe your employer has not properly paid you, you should hire an employment lawyer. If your employer discriminated against you on the bases of race, religion, national origin, or gender – hire an employment lawyer to protect your interests. Our attorney for workers provides free consultation to file a complaint against your employer and our services require no upfront money. However, you may read our article on how file a complaint with the California Labor Commissioner for unpaid wages.
How do I choose an employment lawyer?
Six tips to avoid a lame employment lawyer are:
- Interview the potential employment attorney in your city. When you create a list of five top employment attorneys, meet with each of the lawyers. Ask a lot of questions!
- The employment lawyer you meet must have experience handling cases similar to yours. California labor law is a big subject involving a vast number of legal areas. Don’t hire hungry attorneys who are desperate for work by meddling in employment issues that are not within their expertise. Hungry employment lawyers are hungry for bad reasons.
- Know your rights as an employee. Visit our California labor laws page for answers to the most frequently asked questions.
- Ensure you understand your payment agreement with the employment lawyer. If you don’t understand the lawyer’s fee, run out the door!
Where to file Discrimination Complaint in California
When you’re facing harassment and discrimination, you need to file with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The two governmental agencies have dinstinct rules and deadlines for filing. Generally with many exceptions, the DFEH complaint must occur within 1 year of the date you were harmed. The EEOC mandates that the discrimination complaint must be within 300 days. There are many deadlines to file a lawsuit depending on the issues and harm. It is therefore critical to promptly contact a California employment attorney to find out what action you need to take.
