A California Employment Law Firm Advocating Under State And Federal Anti-Discrimination Laws
Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys advocate for California employees under state and federal employment law. Under federal law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Additionally, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (ADA), prohibits employment discrimination against employees with disabilities. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) prohibits sex-based wage discrimination for men and women who perform substantially equal work. Furthermore, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits age discrimination against employees who are 40 years old or older. Browne Labor Law is California employment discrimination law firm that advocates for employees under each of these employment discrimination and retaliation statutes.
The California Fair Housing and Employment Act (FEHA) provides even broader protections than its federal counterparts. For example, in addition to protecting workers from the forms of discrimination mentioned in the previous paragraph, FEHA prohibits discrimination based on marital status and sexual orientation. It also provides broader protections for employees with disabilities. Furthermore, FEHA applies to employers who employ 5 or more employees, and a victim of sexual harassment need only work for a 1 person employer in order to bring a claim under FEHA. Most federal discrimination laws require that the company employ more than 5 workers. Browne Labor Law is a California employment discrimination law firm that advocates for employees under state law.
A California Employment Law Firm Advocating Under State And Federal Wage and Hour Laws
The law firm also advocates under state and federal wage and hour laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) and the California Labor Code. Unpaid overtime, meal break violations, rest break violations, minimum wage violations, as well as unpaid wages, commissions, and bonuses round out the rest of the law firm’s practice.
A California Employment Law Firm Representing Employees at all Stages of the Legal Process
Unlike some other California employment discrimination law firms, Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys represent employees during both the pre-litigation and litigation stages of a claim. Employees are typically required to first file a charge of discrimination before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or a complaint of discrimination before the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) before bringing an employment discrimination or retaliation lawsuit. Browne Labor Law represents employees during the EEOC/DFEH process, as well as during EEOC investigations, EEOC mediations, DFEH investigations, and DFEH mediations. Additionally, Browne Labor Law also represents employees who have received a right to sue letter from either agency.
