Operating in Southern California since 1998, our attorneys come from diverse legal backgrounds to offer a highly experienced and interdisciplinary approach to representation that offers a constellation of options and strategies to clients. Backed by extensive resources and a successful track record, we are ready to serve the employment law needs of clients.

Discrimination and Employment Law Attorneys

There are strict federal and state laws that prevent employers from negatively discriminating against an employee based on qualities such as race, creed, gender, religion or disability. When discrimination results in wrongful termination, unequal pay, failure to advance or other mistreatment, employees may be able to recover compensation or damages.

Our experienced employment law attorneys represent clients who feel they have been the victim of:

  • Gender discrimination
  • Racial discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • National origin discrimination

We work closely with our clients to understand the unique facts of your case and explore options available to pursue a positive resolution. Whether we fight against the discrimination you suffered in a courtroom or in direct negotiation with your employer, we make client satisfaction a priority in handling employment law matters.

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. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t pay unless you win.
