Types of Employment Cases in Orange County

We all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace. We also expect proper compensation according to the terms of our employment.

When employers fail in these regards, you can file an employment lawsuit in Orange County. At Bisnar Chase, we handle a range of different cases. These include:

➤  Unlawful termination
Wrongful termination involves an employee being fired illegally (in breach of employment laws or the terms of their contract).

➤  Unfair wage and hour
Employees can take legal action over wage and hour violations, such as being denied minimum wage, overtime pay, proper lunch and break times, and more.

➤  Workplace harassment
When an employee is harassed or abused in the workplace – either sexual harassment or otherwise – they may file a claim, particularly if an employer knew about the problem and failed to act.

Sexual harassment in the workplace - an employer touches an employee's hand, creating a hostile work environment.

➤  Hostile work environments
Workers may have a case if they are abused or discriminated against at work, putting them in a hostile environment.

➤  Fair severance packages
Disputes over severance packages can be handled by an employment lawyer to ensure the worker gets the compensation they deserve.

➤  Class action
If several workers are mistreated in some way by the same employer, they can improve their claim by joining forces to file a class action employment lawsuit.

We represent employees across Orange County. Our Newport Beach office is centrally located near you and we offer a free consultation with a no win, no fee guarantee.

  • Work expenses: Failure to pay business expenses

What is At-Will Employment in California?

An employer and worker shake hands after signing an employment contract.

California is an at-will employment state. As such, most workers in CA are considered at-will employees. But what does that mean?

It means that an employer can fire a worker without having to give a reason. As long as the firing is not for an unlawful reason, or in breach of the employee’s contract, it is fair game.

Likewise, an at-will employee can leave their role at any time without having to give any notice. At-will employment laws give employers a lot of protection, but it does not mean that they are immune from being sued.

Examples of Wrongful Termination in Orange County

Despite California being an at-will employment state, several acts may constitute wrongful or unlawful termination.

This means that you might be able to file an employment lawsuit after being fired, even if you were an at-will employee.

Under California employment law, an employer may not fire a worker for:

  • Taking time off for jury duty (230.a)
  • Being the victim of a crime or appearing in court per a subpoena (230.b)
  • Taking time off to perform emergency duty (230.3.a)
  • Taking off up to 40 hours annually (not exceeding eight hours per month) to take part in activities at the school or daycare of the employee’s child (230.8.a)
  • Revealing the wage amount they earn to others (232.c)
  • Disclosing information on their employer’s working conditions (232.5)
  • Using, or attempting to use sick leave for a child, parent, or spouse (233.c)

These are just some of the conditions that can lead to a wrongful termination lawsuit in Orange County.

It is also against the law to discriminate against a person and fire them over their race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or age.

Orange County Workplace Discrimination

A key aspect of labor and employment law is that employees must not be discriminated against. This means that a person must not face unfair treatment due to:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Color
  • Gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation
  • Genetic information
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Disability

Cases of workplace discrimination can leave workers facing a hostile environment every day. But you should not suffer in silence.

It is natural to fear reporting workplace violations or mistreatment. When you file a lawsuit against your employer, it often feels like David vs. Goliath. But our experts are here to help. You do not have anything to fear when you have Bisnar Chase on your side.

Our Orange County employment attorneys have taken on giant companies and won fair settlements for mistreated clients. We have the skill, experience, and resources to get the right result for you.

California Employment Law Labor Codes

An employee has been fired by wrongful termination and collects his belongings in a box.

As an employee, it is important to know your rights. If you are in the process of being let go, it is worth exploring any labor codes that may apply to your case.

For example, discharged employees must be given any unpaid wages promptly after dismissal, while workers are also entitled to maintain any benefits earned.

Visit the United States Department of Labor for further information.

If you have lost your job, you still have certain rights, such as the right to continue your health care coverage. You may also deserve compensation, depending on the circumstances of your termination, or the conditions of your employment.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!

I had an attorney for my truck accident who wanted almost 60% of what my case was worth. Worse than that, he was willing to settle for $5,000.00 with the insurance company even though I was still treating for whiplash and back pain. I contacted Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys because a friend recommended them. My case was handled exceptionally well! I was being kept notified throughout the whole process and only when I was comfortable with the settlement figure, did my attorney Gavin Long, accept it. I felt like we were working together and I felt listened to. I would refer Bisnar Chase to anyone who wants quality over quantity!
