Californians benefit from working in a state with one of the most worker-friendly labor codes in the country. California’s robust labor laws thoroughly enhance the protections workers already enjoy under federal law.

This doesn’t mean employers always obey the law here. Employers can violate California’s labor laws when they commit discrimination, retaliate against whistleblowers, allow harassment to occur, and more.

The consequences employees may face when employers violate labor laws can significantly impact their livelihoods. If this has happened to you, it’s important to be familiar with your legal rights. You may be able to seek compensation or reinstatement to a job from which you’ve been fired by filing a claim or lawsuit against an employer.

Review your case with a Woodland Hills employment law attorney at JML Law for more information. We will explain your legal options and provide the aggressive representation you deserve if we agree to work with one another.


Employment law cases take many forms. Types of cases our Woodland Hills employment law firm handles include (but are not limited to) cases involving:

  1. Discrimination based on race, gender, religion, age, disability, etc.
  2. Sexual harassment
  3. Wage and hour violations, such as unpaid overtime
  4. Wrongful termination
  5. Retaliation
  6. Failure to pay commissions
  7. Family and Medical Leave Act and California Family Rights Act violations
  8. Defamation
  9. Severance agreement negotiations
  10. Nondisclosure agreements and non-compete agreements

It’s not always obvious when an employer is breaking the law. If you suspect that an employer is mistreating you or allowing you to be mistreated in a manner that qualifies as a violation of California’s Labor Code, document the matter however possible (such as saving emails, making notes of any instances of improper behavior, etc.) and schedule a consultation at our Woodland Hills employment law firm. We will carefully go over the details of your case and discuss whether you have grounds to take legal action.


Most employment law cases are complex. Showing that an employer has broken the law can be challenging if you attempt to build a case yourself.

For instance, perhaps an employer has discriminated against you by terminating your employment because your religious beliefs conflict with theirs. They may have justified firing you by fabricating a legal reason to do so instead of openly admitting they were letting you go because of your religion.

Proving that your employer is lying when they claim to have fired you for a legally-acceptable reason can involve a range of tasks, such as acquiring and reviewing old performance reviews, gathering various forms of correspondence, and even contacting witnesses if necessary.

That’s just one example. The main point to understand is that your odds of winning a case against an employer are much greater when you have professional assistance from attorneys with experience handling cases like yours. We can handle all tasks your case will involve, allowing you to focus on getting your life back on track.
