All employees have basic rights in the workplace, including the right to privacy, fair compensation, and freedom from discrimination.
A job applicant also has certain rights prior to being hired as an employee. Those rights include the right to be free from discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or religion during the hiring process.
At Sundeen & Salinas, we are committed to protecting your rights as an employee or job applicant, including the following:
- Your right to be free from discrimination and harassment of all types, including race discrimination, disability discrimination and sexual harassment
- Your right to a safe workplace free of dangerous conditions, toxic substances, and other potential safety hazards
- Your right to be free from retaliation for filing a claim or complaint against an employer (these are sometimes called "whistleblower" rights)
- Your right to fair wages for work performed including overtime wages, as well as meal periods, rest periods and other fundamental rights
We have represented clients in lawsuits against all types of employers, including large corporations like Chevron, Texaco, medium size and smaller employers locally and throughout the State, and government entities such as the United States Postal Service.
If you feel that your rights as an employee or job applicant have been violated, it may be in your best interest to talk to an experienced employees' rights attorney who will explain your options and protect your legal rights.
