Protecting Employees in All Types of Employment Law Cases

There are multiple laws governing the employer-employee relationship, workplace misconduct, and conditions in the work environment. A LA employment lawyer at Litigation P.C., is able to pursue all legal remedies available for such cases as:

Discrimination and Harassment: It is unlawful for employers to take adverse action against employees or harass them on account of their race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, disability, and other characteristics that are protected by law. Employers are also prohibited from treating workers differently because of their participation in protected activities. As such, you could have a claim against your employer for:

  • Discrimination;
  • Harassment on the basis of sex or other grounds that create a hostile work environment or result in a quid pro quo situation;
  • Wrongful termination;
  • Unlawful retaliation; and,
  • Many others.

Workplace Safety: Various state and federal laws require employers to make repairs, conduct inspections, and otherwise maintain a safe workplace. Violations can result in severe penalties, but you may also have grounds to take legal action as an employee.

Employee Privacy & Rights: Your right to privacy extends into the work environment, so there are restrictions on employers regarding invasion of privacy and intrusion to your private affairs.

Wage and Hour Claims: Minimum wage and overtime are the most common disputes in this category, but medical and family leave issues also tie into these claims.

Wage and Hour Laws

Minimum Wage

Los Angeles has one of the highest minimum wages in the United States. As of 2024, the minimum wage for employers with 26 or more employees is $16.78 per hour, while employers with 25 or fewer employees must pay at least $15.50 per hour. These rates are higher than the California state minimum wage and are subject to annual adjustments based on the Consumer Price Index.

Overtime Pay

California’s overtime laws, which apply to Los Angeles, mandate that non-exempt employees receive overtime pay at one and a half times their regular rate for hours worked over 8 in a day or 40 in a week. Double time is required for hours worked over 12 in a day and for hours worked beyond 8 on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.

Anti-Discrimination Protections

Los Angeles workers are protected from discrimination by a combination of federal laws (such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act) and state laws (such as the California Fair Employment and Housing Act – FEHA). These laws prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other protected characteristics.

Harassment and Retaliation

Workplace harassment, including sexual harassment, is prohibited under both federal and state law. Employers in Los Angeles are required to take reasonable steps to prevent and promptly correct any harassment. Retaliation against employees who report discrimination or harassment, or who participate in an investigation, is also illegal.

Family and Medical Leave

California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The CFRA and FMLA provide eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year for certain family and medical reasons. These reasons include the birth or adoption of a child, the serious health condition of the employee or a family member, and certain military-related situations. Los Angeles employees are entitled to these protections and may use accrued paid leave during their absence.

Paid Family Leave (PFL)

California’s Paid Family Leave program offers up to eight weeks of partial wage replacement benefits to employees who take time off to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child. This program is funded through employee payroll deductions and applies to workers in Los Angeles.

Workplace Safety


The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) sets and enforces workplace safety standards in Los Angeles. Employers are required to provide a safe and healthful workplace, free from serious recognized hazards. This includes implementing and maintaining an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), providing necessary training, and ensuring the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Heat Illness Prevention

Given the warm climate of Los Angeles, employers must also comply with California’s heat illness prevention regulations. These rules require employers to provide outdoor workers with access to shade, fresh water, and regular breaks to prevent heat-related illnesses.
