Attorneys Fighting for Unpaid Overtime and Commissions
California law strictly requires timely payment of all due wages and sales commissions. Employers must also pay overtime to hourly wage employees who work over 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week. Some employers misclassify workers as “exempt” employees or independent contractors to avoid paying overtime. Our lawyers can determine what you’re owed and help you recover your unpaid wages, overtime, or commissions.
Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Employers are required to promptly investigate sexual harassment and take action so that it stops. An employer may never retaliate against an employee for complaining of harassment. Sexual harassment can take many forms, direct or indirect, and every situation is unique. If harassment makes you uncomfortable at your job you should consult with an experienced attorney. Our lawyers can review your situation and advise you of your options.
Being fired is always upsetting, however being fired for a discriminatory or retaliatory reason is also against the law in California. An employer may not terminate an employee for race, sex, disability, or certain other traits; nor may an employer fire someone for complaining of discrimination, harassment or other illegal acts by the employer (“whistleblowing”). The attorneys at McCormack & Erlich will evaluate your case, and fight for the best resolution.
