According to an employment lawyer Los Angeles CA, the restaurant industry is notorious for violating employment law. Employers and employees alike need to understand the laws and be prepared to file an employment lawsuit when a violation occurs.
The new landmark California Supreme Court case, Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Charles Lee has dramatically changed the formulation for determining whether someone is an independent contractor or an employee.
Of all employment law disputes, including harassment and discrimination cases, wage and hour disputes are the most common brought forth by employees. In wage and hour disputes, it is the overtime pay rate and an employer not crediting overtime hours properly that are often the source of the dispute.
When an employee is involved in a suit at the workplace, it is a common assumption that at some point, the employer is bound to retaliate especially if the winner of the suit is the employee. Finding a dedicated retaliation lawyer is crucial when building a case.
