Areas of Employment Law

Our firm has a dedicated employment law team that handles a diverse client base and skillfully resolves challenging employment issues. Common employment cases we represent include:

  • Employment discrimination. Prejudice against workers can take many forms, such as discrimination based on the following:
    • Sex/gender
    • Equal pay
    • Failure to promote
    • Sexual harassment
    • Pregnancy
    • Race
    • Unfair treatment
    • Profiling
    • Age
    • Denied benefits
    • Forced retirement
    • Religion
    • Failure to reasonably accommodate
    • Forced activities
    • Physical disability
    • Mental disability
    • Medical condition
    • Failure to reasonably accommodate
    • Sexual orientation
    • National origin
  • Wage and hour- The U.S. Department of Labor and the California Labor Commissioner's Office enforce wage and hours laws so you are fairly treated and compensated for your work, governing areas such as:
    • Minimum wage
    • Overtime pay
    • Recordkeeping requirements
    • Rest and meal time requirements
    • Child labor
    • Wage reduction
    • Contractor requirements
    • Children working in the entertainment industry
    • Tip pooling 
  • Independent contractor classification - Independent contractors do not receive the benefits that employees receive, such as health insurance, vacation pay, sick pay, and so on. To avoid paying benefits, some companies classify employees as independent workers, which is illegal.
  • Overtime disputes - California law entitles you to receive overtime pay if you work more than 40 hours a week or over 8 hours a day. Workers paid hourly wages along with salaried workers in non-management positions are entitled to overtime pay. To avoid paying overtime, some employers give management titles to workers without assigning management responsibilities or functions. Your work activities, not the job title determine whether you should be paid for overtime. Bonafide managers on salary who spend more than half of their work time supervising or managing other employees may not draw overtime pay.

Even if your particular dispute is not listed here, you should contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker to protect your rights. Our strong advocacy, vast experience, and reputation as lawyers can make a considerable difference in the outcome of your case.
