Answers to Your Labor Law Questions in Sacramento

California labor law covers a broad scope of legal issues that involve employment, wages, pensions, contractors, unions, binding mediation for labor disputes and safety issues, to name a few. Clients often turn to Mastagni Holstedt, A Professional Corporation for legal help and, when they do, we provide them with expert legal guidance developed through decades of experience.

Employment issues

Workplace discrimination is a common issue, addressed by federal and state employment law. When employers treat employees unjustly based on discriminatory reasons, such as race, color, sex, age or other protected classes, employees have the right to file claims. In many cases the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) decides not to represent the claimant in a lawsuit against the employer. However, you still have the right to pursue a lawsuit and an experienced employment lawyer at our firm can review your case and evaluate the prospects of seeking legal action. Our attorneys examine contracts and determine whether breaches occurred, and handle disputes involving pregnancy leave violations, non-competition clauses and wrongful termination. We also represent clients in Social Security Disability and workers' compensation claims.

Federal employment law issues

U.S. government employees have protected rights under federal employment law, including qui tam and whistleblower litigation. Federal employees have freedom from retaliation for reporting criminal or illegal activity under the Whistleblower Protection Act. Our firm can address numerous issues that federal employees face, including the following:

  • Retirement and disability benefit disputes
  • Wrongful terminations, demotions or suspensions
  • Union grievance disputes
  • Sexual harassment
  • Workplace discrimination
  • Appeals before the Merit System Protection Board
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues

Wage and hour law disputes

California and the federal government both maintain laws that govern how employers handle wage and hour issues. Workers have the right to receive minimum wages based on California law and, generally, to receive overtime pay. California law prohibits employers from docking workers' pay below the minimum wage, from failing to pay for standing or travel time and from withholding a worker's final paycheck. Wrongly classifying workers as hourly instead of salaried (or vice versa) or not paying certain salaried workers for overtime is also illegal.
