We Are Fierce Advocates for Our Clients

For most people, their jobs are more than just a paycheck. They can offer personal fulfillment, a social and professional network, and a sense of accomplishment as we work towards our goals. Employment issues can derail all of this, leaving us confused and overwhelmed. When an employer acts unlawfully, the help of an employment law attorney, like ours at The Sexton Law Firm, can be invaluable.

Examples of workplace discrimination can include:

  • Not being promoted because of your perceived gender
  • Not being hired because of your perceived race
  • Not being included in professional opportunities because of your familial status or family responsibilities
  • Not being considered for a position or promotion because of your disability status or age

Examples of workplace harassment can include:

  • Inappropriate jokes about your perceived age, sex, gender, race, religion, etc.
  • Inappropriate touching
  • A coworker commenting on your body
  • Being ridiculed for your perceived sexual orientation
  • Being called names or slurs
  • Receiving threats from a coworker or manager

Everyone suffers when an employer or manager violates state or federal employment laws. All employment law infractions, from not paying an employee overtime to retaliating against them when they report a labor law violation, no matter how severe, do harm. By holding employers accountable, you can not only seek justice for yourself, but you can help protect other workers from experiencing the same thing.

When Your Future Is on the Line, We Are Here to Help

We understand how difficult it can be to go up against your employer. Our Chula Vista-based employment lawyers can help you throughout the process. Whether you lost your job or are dealing with workplace discrimination or harassment, you may have grounds to seek compensation for the damages you have sustained.

You may be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Unpaid wages, including overtime and commissions
  • Lost wages, such as in the case of wrongful termination
  • The value of withheld and/or lost benefits

Punitive damages may be awarded depending on the case's circumstances. Employers may also be required to change their company policies and practices. These things can all go a long way in protecting workers from being exploited by their employers.
