The lawyers of Fernandez & Lauby LLP are experienced litigators providing quality representation for clients in a wide range of legal matters. Contact us for representation in Southern California for employment litigation matters involving:

  • Wage and hour disputes: Employers are under strict federal and state regulations to ensure employees are paid fairly and according to labor laws covering minimum wage, prevailing wages, overtime, vacation, meal periods and rest breaks, off the clock work, commissions, expenses/mileage, tips, appropriate classification as exempt/non-exempt, and classification as an employee or independent contractor.

We also have extensive experience in class action wage and hour cases to assist you and your co-workers in recovering unpaid wages.
  • Hiring and workplace discrimination/harassment: If you are facing discrimination or harassment in the workplace or the hiring process, or are being denied opportunities at work because of your age, sex, race, religion, marital status, pregnancy or other factor, you are entitled to seek legal redress through the California and federal court systems. We have extensive experience representing clients in claims involving retaliation such as sexual harassment, hostile work environment and wrongful termination, and whistleblower retaliation resulting from exercising your right to file a complaint.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorneys, Kathy Le and 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. Le and 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.
