Read the following summaries of the different categories of employment law down below.

Wage and Hour Law

Wage and hour cases are seen most frequently out of all the types of cases in employment law because these cases are easily the most documented cases of employment law violations. Wage violation occurs in the following situations:

  • Employer fails to provide pay stubs with detailed information.
  • Employees are classified as "exempt" and are not given overtime pay.
  • Employer does not provide employees with 10 minute breaks for every four hours of work.
  • Employers do not provide employees with meal breaks within the first five hours of work.
  • Employer neglects to provide paid time for tasks required to properly prepare for work.
  • Employer neglects to ensure employees are meeting minimum wage requirements.
  • Employer neglects to provide second meal breaks for shifts longer than 10 hours.

Harassment and Hostile Work Environment

Harassment on the job and unfair wages and discrimination are the realities of millions of American workers, and applies when an employee of a company legitimately fears going to their workplace due to the hostile environment they encounter there. Filing a lawsuit in these situations is difficult, but not impossible. Visit our hostile workplace environment page to see if you have a case.

Wrongful Termination

California is an "at-will" employment state, meaning that an employer may terminate an employee at any time, with or without cause. Though there are exceptions to this law, like in cases of whistleblowing or discrimination, the legal language generally makes it very difficult to bring a case against a company for wrongful termination. Some attorneys will ignore wrongful termination cases because of this difficulty, but Bisnar Chase investigates evidence of wrongdoing not only within the termination process, but also in other aspects of the employer's treatment of its workers.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“John Bisnar was so professional and caring. When I found myself in this situation and never having a car accident before I didn't know what steps to take. Mr. Bisnar explained every single detail to me and what to expect. His staff was amazing, friendly and seemed to really care about me as a person. I lost all doubt I may have had about dealing with personal injury lawyers and couldn't be happier with the level of service I received. I was constantly updated on my case status and received far more from my settlement than I expected.”

“Undoubtedly the best firm I've ever encountered. It's not a huge firm, as I only worked with a few people, but it felt like a real place where work gets done. I never felt like a "little person," as my case wasn't small, but it wasn't huge either. I know lawyers have gotten a bad rap, but these guys bring the word classy back to law. I definitely can recommend these guys.”
