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!



What is an employment law attorney?

An employment law attorney assists employees and businesses with employment-related issues and lawsuits. Employment law attorneys are also known as labor lawyers. Employment attorneys represent employees who are filing suit against their employer due to wrongful termination, wage violations, discrimination. Employment attorneys also represent employers in a lawsuit brought by employees.


What is the purpose of employment law?

California labor laws have a universal purpose; labor laws protect employees’ rights. Likewise, the employment laws mandate the employers’ duties, responsibilities, and obligations to the employees. Primarily, California laws provide equal opportunities and pay to all people regardless of race, gender, religion, or national origin.


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.


How many days can you work without a day off in California?

The general rule for California labor laws is that employees are entitled to one day’s off in seven. Also, employers may not force employees to work more than six days per week. However, those employees who work less than 30 hours per week, or did not work more than six hours in any day of the week are exempt from the general rule.


Common Labor Law Violations

Our employment attorney Brad Nakase had the honor of representing a former Oakley employee concerning discrimination over hair color. The lawsuit went viral and was picked up by many media sources. The former employee was black and he had orange hair. The Oakley manager said his hair color must be close to the color of his skin.


In Rasean Johnson v City of San Diego (2019), a San Diego jury slammed the City of San Diego for religious discrimination. The jury awarded $300,000 to a San Diego city employee, Rasean Johnson, who experienced extended religious harassment by his supervisor, Sheila Beale. The lawsuit alleged that Beale began leading prayer sessions and urged employees to attend church. The lawsuit further alleged that Beale cautioned Johnson that he should read the bible and “even good people go to hell if they don’t have their life to the work of god.”

In 2019, the City of San Diego was also accused of creating a racially hostile environment. The city settled a claim by San Diego police officer, Jeffrey Stewart, for $50,000. The City of San Diego paid a terminated San Diego Police officer $50,000 after he accused the department of creating a “racially hostile environment.” The legal theory for recovery was wrongful termination by the City of San Diego.


In 2016, a mother filed a transgender lawsuit against Rady Children’s Hospital. The lawsuit alleges that the San Diego children hospital broke gender discrimination law when employees continuously addressed the transgender son, Kyler Prescott, as a girl.


In 2009, the City of San Diego was sued by employees for underpaying overtime. The lawsuit plaintiffs consist of 2500 city employees. The city paid its employees cash for health insurance. California wage laws require that cash payment for medical coverage should be calculated in an employee’s regular hourly rate of pay for purposes of determining overtime pay.


In 2014, a woman sued the City of San Diego for race discrimination. The lawsuit alleged that there was a history of discrimination practices inside city government where white employees were favored for promotions over minority employees.
