Monterey County is a beautiful area in which to live and work. However, many employees have serious problems at work. They may be facing harassment or discrimination in the workplace. They may not be receiving the appropriate pay for all hours worked, including sick time, overtime, and vacation pay. Their bosses could be bullying them, or retaliating against them for making a complaint about workplace conditions. The working environment may be so miserable that in effect they are being forced to quit, which is called constructive discharge.
Many employees who face some of those issues have legal recourse. An employment attorney can help them make a complaint with the appropriate agency, or file a lawsuit against the employer. The employee may win his or her job back, or be entitled to compensation for damages, which can include back pay and benefits, among others forms of compensation.
Employees are not the only ones who sometimes need legal advice. Employers have a myriad of regulations and laws to navigate in employment relationship. Fortunately, Liberty Law is there to help. Micha Star Liberty helps employers develop employee handbooks, draft employment agreements, perform workplace investigations, and more. Liberty Law can advise employees on whether it’s legal for them to fire or layoff an employee, whether or not an employee should be classified as an independent contractor, and other legal questions.
Liberty Law also helps victims of car accidents with their claims that could result from the accident. Liberty Law works with automobile accident victims, motorcycle accident victims, aviation accident victims, truck accident victims, bicycle accident victims, and SUV accident victims. The responsible party for the accident, which could be another driver, should be made to pay for your damages.
Accident victims are entitled to compensation from their accidents. The compensation can include money for medical expenses, vehicle damage, lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering, and more. The family members of those who are injured or killed in accidents may also be entitled to compensation, not only for the damages of the person killed, but also for their pain and suffering and loss of companionship from the person killed.
Liberty Law also works with other types of accident victims, or victims of another person’s wrongful actions. This can include victims of elder abuse, police misconduct, sexual abuse, medical malpractice, professional malpractice, defective products, and more. The parties that caused the wrongful actions, or allowed them to occur, can and should be held responsible for physical and emotional damages that result.
