With a population of over 470,000 people, Long Beach has a median household income of 60,000 dollars annually. Around half of all Long Beach residents are employed and unemployment is now less than 20 percent. In today’s economy, most workers would consider taking a less desirable job or agreeing to a job requirement (like moving) if their current or potential employer offered the opportunity to get a specified pay raise, more benefits, or higher bonuses as incentives. However, sometimes employers offer these incentives to their current or potential employees and then intentionally not honor them. These misrepresentations can have serious impacts on the lives and families of their employees. Contact JML Law offices in Long Beach today. We have experienced attorneys who build strong legal cases for our clients to recover the maximum damages due legally from their employer.
What Is Fraudulent Inducement Of Employment
If you are promised moving costs to change residences for work and are then intentionally not compensated by your employer, you have now lost those funds. Employers sometimes knowingly lie about the conditions of work environments, residential prospects, advancements in education, and the potential for bigger salaries to get their employees to accept other available employment positions that their employee would not have normally accepted. If your employer has knowingly given you false assurances and/or promised incentives they can not deliver on, to persuade you to take an employment opportunity on the sole basis of these assurances, contact JML law offices in Long Beach at 818-610-8800 and consult with a professional attorney who specializes in workers’ rights and fraudulent inducement of employment cases.
The Labor Code
According to California’s labor code, employers can not talk their employees into changing their residence to, from, or within California, by making knowingly false representations about:
- “The kind, character, or existence of such work;
- The length of time such work will last, or the compensation therefor;
- The sanitary or housing conditions relating to or surrounding the work;
- The existence or nonexistence of any strike, lockout, or other labor dispute affecting it and pending between the proposed employer and the persons then or last engaged in the performance of the labor for which the employee is sought.”
A violation of this code entitles an employee to double the damages against the employer.
