Labor & Employment Law
At Cadry Law Group, we represent both employees and employers in a wide variety of employment-related lawsuits and disputes, including cases involving wage and hour disputes, disability law, sexual harassment, workplace discrimination, equal pay, retaliation, pregnancy discrimination, and wrongful termination. We have successfully represented and advised both employees and employers in Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), whistle-blower claims, work hours and wages, unpaid commissions, failure to provide leaves of absence (including maternity and pregnancy leave), workplace safety and disability accommodations.
As an employee, your job is your livelihood. We work on a contingency-fee basis - meaning that you will NOT pay any attorneys fees until the best possible outcome of your case is reached. Our office will provide you with a free initial consultation of your case. We represent employees all throughout California, and have successfully secured hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients through settlements. We aggressively represent employees in all employment-related matters including:
Wrongful Termination: Under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), California protects employees against wrongful termination on the basis of their race, religion, color, nationality, ancestry, disability or medical condition, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy, childbirth, medical conditions. If your employer asks you to perform a work or an act that you know is illegal, the employer may not fire you if you refuse to break the law. Moreover, If your employer performs a fraudulent activity, you can report his illegal act and the employer should not dismiss you. As a “Whistleblower”, you are protected under the law.
Discrimination: California law protects you against discrimination in hiring, firing, denying you training and employment opportunities, equitable compensation, working conditions, or restriction of employment, based on: Religion, Disability, Age, Gender, Pregnancy, Medical Conditions, Military and Veteran Status, Race and National Origin.
Harassment: California law protects you against workplace harassment, including sexual harassment, discriminatory harassment, and harassment based on protected characteristics such as your age, race, religion, and sexual orientation.
Disability Accommodations: Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities. This includes: making existing facilities used by disabled employees readily accessible, moving an employee to a more accessible worksite, modifying the work schedule, slight reform of duties or modification of responsibilities, permitting the disabled employees to bring assistive animals (eye seeing dogs) to the workplace, allowing a disabled to heal or get well by leaving their job open for a reasonable period of time.
Work Hours & Wages: You are entitled to a 30-minute meal break, and two 10 minutes rest periods for each 8 hours of work. The employer is not permitted to reduce your pay for the 10 minutes rest periods. If your employer denies you the meal and rest periods, the employer is violating your rights, in accordance with California law.
As an employer, it is important to ensure that you are adequately complying with California's ever-changing and increasingly-complex employment laws and regulations. You will always get our best advice on what to do depending on what your situation is.
