Protecting your rights when they are threatened by your employer is something no one should have to do. Unfortunately, bad employers still violate people’s rights and threaten their jobs. When your employer violates your rights, it’s anxiety-producing and sometimes emotionally shattering. The law firm of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian advocates aggressively for California workers. If your rights are being threatened or violated at work, call a Fresno employment lawyer today. We’ve protected the rights of employees, and we’ve made sure they obtain justice, for more than two decades.
DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT
The law protects you, and our Fresno employment lawyers will protect you, from employment discrimination based on race, color, nationality, gender, religion, age, disability, or pregnancy. Discrimination laws are exceptions to the “at will” employment typical in California. An employee may be fired “at will” and has no legal right to further employment, but no employee may be terminated on the basis of discrimination.
Sexual harassment is still pervasive in the workplace. Promising a raise or threatening termination for sexual favors is harassment. So is creating a hostile work environment, touching, obscene language, gestures, graffiti, and pictures. At Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian, our experienced Fresno employment lawyers evaluate the details of your discrimination or harassment claim and suggest your wisest legal options. Often we can reach an acceptable settlement out of court. When that isn’t possible, we bring our considerable resources and 75 combined years of legal experience to trial on your behalf. We help you obtain justice.
WAGES, HOURS, AND OVERTIME
Some employers fudge on wage, hour, and overtime regulations, although the rules are clearly set forth in both state and federal law. However, exceptions to wage and hour laws are abundant for a variety of reasons. Nevertheless, if you are not receiving full compensation for any reason; if you are not provided breaks and lunch; if your time sheet is altered; or if you are being cheated in some other way – and the ways are many – get legal advice now from the Fresno employment lawyers of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian.
If you face any discrimination, harassment, or wage and hour issue at the workplace, call a Fresno employment lawyer immediately. Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian represents clients in Fresno, Madera, Tulare, Kingsburg, and Hanford counties.
