Employers can also be liable for subjecting employees to a hostile work environment or sexual harassment. Employers must follow certain laws pertaining to wages and payment, including payment for overtime.
Employment lawyers in California typically represent employees who have been treated unfairly or wrongly by their employers and seek to be compensated.
The NELA strives toward a world where employees are paid a living wage, that is free of employment discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination.
