San Joaquin County has a large population, and therefore has a lot of businesses and other employers. In many businesses and employer-employee relationships, legal problems arise. Employees may feel that they are being wrongfully treated, or are being paid unfairly. They may be working in a hostile workplace or are suffering from other legal problems.
Liberty Law can help. Liberty Law works with employers and employees throughout northern California, including San Joaquin County. Employees turn to Liberty Law for help with legal disputes with their employers, and often employers turn to Liberty Law for guidance on drafting employee handbooks, for help with legal questions, and for advice on drafting employment contracts.
Employees often have complicated legal situations arising from the workplace. One of the most complicated issues is discrimination or harassment that occurs in the workplace. If discrimination or harassment occurs and it is based on an illegal purpose, such as age, sex, race, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or a similar reason, it could be found to be illegal under both federal and state law. The employee may be able to sue the employer and obtain compensation. The harassment or discrimination must occur in the workplace, but do not have to be directly from the employer in order to be illegal.
Employees also may face a lot of other workplace issues. Often, employers take advantage of employees by refusing to pay them for all of the work they have done. They may assume the employee won’t hire an attorney or pursue the claim. Employers may characterize employees as independent contractors so they will not have to provide certain benefits to which many employees are entitled. Bosses may be bullies and create a miserable working environment, which can lead to constructive discharge. Other employers may retaliate against employee for various reasons.
