We Represent Victims of Harassment and Discrimination in the Workplace:

Federal and California laws protect individuals in protected classes from harassment. Fernandez & Lauby represents clients who have been subjected to various forms of discrimination, including:

  • Age discrimination – terminating or treating an employee harshly due of their age. Once a worker reaches the age of 40, they are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.
  • Racial discrimination – it is illegal to treat an employee preferentially or negatively because of their racial background or skin color
  • Disability discrimination – employers are prohibited from discriminating against individuals with disabilities. This extends to hiring, compensation, benefits, promotions and job training.
  • Sex discrimination in the workplace – federal and California law prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on their gender. This applies equally to males and females and extends to hiring, compensation, promotions, benefits and other job-related issues.
  • Pregnancy discrimination – Pregnant women are a protected class, as designated in the Civil Rights Act. Under the Family Medical Leave Act and the California Family Rights Act, employers may not discriminate against pregnant women. A pregnant employee may not be refused a job or terminated due to pregnancy.
  • Wrongful termination – At Fernandez & Lauby we handle wrongful termination cases. Employees may not be terminated for participating in union activities or in retaliation for whistleblowing or for many other reasons.
  • Hostile environment – We represent clients who have been subjected to hostile environments in the workplace. This form of conduct is strictly prohibited.
  • Retaliation – There are many reasons why employers or others in the work environment retaliate against an individual, but they are all unlawful. We represent victims of workplace retaliation.
  • Wage and Hour Disputes – Wage and hour disputes can often be resolved quickly and efficiently by alternative dispute resolution methods.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
