Rancho Cucamonga Law Firm Fights for the Rights of Employers and Their Employees

What are my rights as an employee?

What are my obligations as an employer?

Many state and federal employment laws protect the relationship between employers and employees in California. Often, both the boss and the workers are unfamiliar with the very laws that apply to their relationship. Knowing the laws that apply to the employment relationship is critical to avoid disputes over hours and wages, overtime, bonuses, vacation time, discrimination, and sexual harassment.

If the employer understands the application of the employment laws, he can prevent many of the employment problems that businesses face. For the employee, knowing the laws helps secure the payment of proper wages, benefits, and protections necessary for a productive relationship. David H. Ricks & Associates advises both employers and employees to help each protect themselves in employment law disputes.

For Workers in California

For employees, you will want the guidance of an employment lawyer with any of the following:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Hour and wage disputes
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination based on race, gender or sex, ethnicity, age, religion, or national origin
  • Overtime disputes
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Other employment-related violations

Contact our Rancho Cucamonga office at (909) 481-5856 to receive a free consultation. Many employment claims are handled on a contingency basis or on a deferred payment basis. This means you do not pay upfront for fees and most costs unless we recover from the culpable party. Some restrictions apply. When we represent employees, we want to provide a winning strategy that allows for the best financial result for the employee.
