California Employment Law Attorneys
The attorneys at Protection Law Group, LLP (“PLG”) collectively have over 25 years of “big firm” experience and have represented some of the largest companies in the world. During that time they accumulated a wealth of knowledge about how companies approach and defend lawsuits. Recognizing that these companies sometimes trample and marginalize employee and individual rights, the attorneys at PLG came together to offer the same legal representation afforded those companies, to employees and individuals (as well as small and medium sized business). As such, PLG’s clients are provided the benefit of the “Big Firm Experience,” but with the access and availability of the “Small Firm Service.”
PLG is a California-based law firm specializing in protecting employee and individual rights. PLG also provides guidance and advice to small and medium sized businesses to ensure they comply with both California and Federal Law. The legal landscape of California makes it difficult for employees and employers alike to stay apprised of the various legal developments. PLG’s lawyers assist employees and employers to understand this ever evolving legal landscape. As the law constantly changes, what may have been acceptable a few years ago may no longer be today. As such, Employees often do not realize that they are entitled to certain workplace rights and employers equally fail to recognize that they have violated those employee rights. Whether you fall under California or Federal Law, depending on the work and the size of the business, employees have the right to:
A safe work environment free from undue dangers;
Privacy for personal matters;
Not to be discriminated against on grounds of their age, race, national origin, gender, ethnicity, pregnancy, religion, disability, marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation and other characteristics;
Fair pay, meaning receiving at least a minimum wage, plus overtime for any hours worked over 40 hours a week or over 8 hours a day;
A workplace environment with no harassment; and
Take time from work to tend to your own, or a family member's, illness, and to take leave following the birth of a child.
Because employees are foremost individuals, and may be hurt or damaged outside the workplace, PLG provides comprehensive legal services to also assist with those injuries. If you have suffered a mild or severe accident, if your civil rights have been violated, or if you purchased a product or service that misrepresented its capabilities and effects or is defective, the attorneys at PLG can assist you with your claims or refer to other competent counsel to help you.
PLG’s pledge to its clients is simple: we are committed to you and your claims and will zealously advocate for your rights. We are particular about the cases we accept allowing us to aggressively focus our efforts and achieve the best possible results for you.
