Labor and Employment Law
At Younessi Law, our attorneys are highly qualified in the field of employment law. Employers owe specific legal obligations to each and every one of their employees, and these obligations are extensive and at times complicated. The laws that govern employment practices fall within state, federal, and local regulations. Due to these complexities, you need a specialized employment legal team to help you achieve a positive result in an employment lawsuit. We are that team.
Employment law violations break down into two major categories: wrongful termination and wage and hour violations. Our attorneys at Younessi Law handle both types of cases.
Under wrongful termination laws, when an employee is terminated for a reason that is unrelated to their work performance, that termination may be unlawful, and the employee may have a claim for wrongful termination. Some of these unlawful reasons include discrimination based on race, nationality, age, gender (including pregnancy), religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, and/or language, and others are based on an employee’s refusal to break the law. These are unacceptable violations, and Younessi Law will hold those employers liable for their actions.
Wage and hour violations are based on an employer’s failure to comply with the laws and regulations put in place to protect employee’s working times and the manner in which they are compensated for their work. Some examples of these violations include failing to pay workers for all the hours worked (off-the-clock hours), failing to pay the proper minimum wage, improperly excluding overtime pay for employees, failing to provide meal and rest breaks, failing to account for payments, and more. The attorneys at Younessi Law have had significant success in litigating each of these areas and more, and can help you maximize your recovery.
