Employment Law For Employees

State and federal laws protect employees from abuses of power by employers. However, employees often feel daunted in the face of mistreatment and do not know where to turn. After all, how can an individual stand up to a powerful organization? This is where the services of an experienced employment law attorney come into play.

I am Kenneth J. Sargoy, an employment law attorney with more than 25 years of legal experience. I protect the rights of California employees facing harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation, unpaid wages, and other unfair and unlawful treatment by employers. If your rights have been abused, I am here to stand up for you.

Have You Been Mistreated At Work?

I am prepared to address a broad range of employment law issues for employees, including those involving:

  • Discrimination: Employers may not discriminate against employees based on age, race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation and other protected characteristics.
  • Sexual harassment: If you have faced lewd jokes, inappropriate comments, touching and other forms of harassment at work, I can help you redress your legal rights.
  • Wrongful termination: Your employer may not fire you for unlawful reasons such as protected status or retaliation for blowing the whistle on unlawful workplace activities.
  • Wage and hour disputes: I can protect your rights in any wage and hour dispute, including claims involving unpaid overtime, meal breaks and vacation.
  • Medical leave disputes: If your right to time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) has been violated, I can provide you with the strong advocacy you need.

It can be difficult to know whether your situation constitutes a violation of employment laws. I am well-versed in California and federal employment statutes and can help you determine if you have a valid claim. If so, I can be the strong advocate you need throughout the legal process.
