When you work for an employer, you not only have expectations that you will be treated fairly as part of your agreement with them, you are also protected by many federal and state laws that guarantee certain aspects of your employment. With these laws in place, you can focus on doing your job well, free from many of the negatives that can create a long-term and sour work environment.
Despite the fact that many laws are on the books, there are times when an employer will violate one or more of these laws. Although federal laws prohibit employers from basing employment decisions based on sex, gender, age, race, disability, sexual orientation and other such factors, violations do occur with regularity. When an employer violates these laws, causing you financial, emotional or physical harm, you have the recourse to seek compensation for any damages you have incurred.
At The Cartwright Law Firm, Inc., we work with our clients to hold employers accountable for their illegal actions. Our legal team in Santa Rosa works closely with each client on an individual basis, giving them direction and guidance so that they can be compensated for any employer transgression. Our extensive employment law experience means we can tackle the toughest cases that involve complex legal issues and strict deadlines. This includes substantial regulatory rules and guidelines that must be followed when dealing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).
Some of the more common employment issues we deal with include:
We are backed by 60 years of experience and are recognized as one of Northern California’s leading employment litigation firms. We take pride in our success, but we are just as proud of how we treat our clients, protecting their rights while we work through difficult legal situations.
