Serving San Francisco and All of the Bay Area
Khadder Law Firm provides comprehensive employment law services in the San Francisco Bay Area.
You go to work to support yourself and your family, forward your career, and to make the world a better place. When your employer terminates your position without good reason, does not pay you fairly for your work, or makes your workplace environment unbearable, they may not just be “bad bosses”, or “bad companies”, they could be breaking state and federal employment laws.
As an employee, you have various rights and protections under the law. At the same time, an employer has certain legal responsibilities toward its employees. When your rights are violated, or when your employer’s responsibilities are ignored, you may need the assistance of a skilled, knowledgeable employment lawyer.
The Khadder Law Firm is dedicated to helping employees in the Bay Area who have been legally wronged by their employers. Whether you are an entry-level worker or a high-powered executive, all employees deserve to be treated lawfully.
Below, learn more about some of the types of employment law cases that we have assisted clients with in the past. If you’d like to talk to an experienced Bay Area employment law attorney about your own case, please call our office today at (415) 402-0711.
Sexual harassment isn’t just inappropriate comments or unwanted sexual contact in the office. Sexual harassment also includes not being promoted, not receiving benefits, or being fired simply because you refuse to engage in sexual favors or sexual behavior. Sexual harassment is absolutely illegal and often requires legal intervention and an experienced and compassionate employment attorney.
Did you know that employers are not legally allowed to retaliate against employees who blow the whistle on unfair wages, unlawful discrimination, or other legal violations? If you have been demoted, fired, or mistreated at work after reporting an employer issue, you may be a victim of workplace retaliation.
While California is an at-will employment state, this does not mean that an employer can terminate an employee for just any reason. For instance, it is unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee because of a disability, pregnancy, race, age, religion, or sexual orientation. It is also unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee because an employee complained or protested unlawful activity by the employer. Call today to speak with an employment attorney about your wrongful termination.
Federal law protects the right of many workers to secure unpaid leave in the event of a medical emergency or family emergency. Under the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA), qualified employees may take up to three months of leave to care for their family or themselves in the event of a serious medical condition, without the threat of job termination or demotion. An employer cannot interfere with an employee’s rights to FMLA leave, nor can an employer discriminate against an employee for taking FMLA leave.
It’s simple: you deserve to be paid fairly, fully, and promptly for the hours you work. Unfortunately, many companies and corporations are constantly finding new ways to cut into worker pay, avoid paying workers for overtime, and get more free hours out of their employees. If you believe that you aren’t being paid for your time, that you aren’t being paid for overtime, or that you aren’t being paid the minimum wage, call us today.
When you sign a contract with your employer, you are both making promises about the work relationship that will follow. When your employer breaks those promises, you may have legal claims for compensation. Breach of an employment contract can involve a wide variety of issues, including employee benefits, length of employment, employee pay, bonuses, and performance expectations.
A fair severance package can be difficult to secure from an employer, especially if you are seeking healthcare and other benefits in addition to monetary support. We work with employees who are either being offered a severance package or who are requesting a severance package to make sure their needs are met as they move on from one job and start a new chapter in their lives.
