Issues Impacting Employees

Clark Law Group works hard to hold employers accountable for their unlawful actions. We represent employees with labor claims involving:

Discrimination

Discrimination occurs when a person or a group of people are treated differently by an employer as a result of a characteristic that is protected under the law such as age, ancestry, color, religion, disability, marital status, medical condition, genetic information, military/veteran status, national origin, race, sex, gender, and sexual orientation.

Discrimination is unlawful under both Federal and California law.

Harassment

There are different forms of workplace harassment, which are outlined below. In order for the offensive actions to be considered unlawful, the actions need to reach beyond mere annoyance.

  • Hostile Work Environment

This type of harassment occurs when a hostile work environment is severe or pervasive that you are unable to perform your work or the harassing conduction become a consistent and defining condition of the work place. Harassment of this type can take many forms including but not limited to: statements, emails, texts, notes, postings, jokes, or any type of communication or action related to race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status of any person.

This kind of illegal conduct often occurs in sexually offensive jokes, offensive statements about disabilities, harassment about sexual orientation, gender related insults, harassment based on religion or lack thereof, verbal attacks and racial slurs and any other form of harassment in the workplace.

  • Sexual Harassment/Quid Pro Quo Harassment

This type of harassment typically involves a form of requested exchange between the employer, supervisor, manager, or co-worker and the employee. Often the exchange is sexual in nature, whereby the act is forced in exchange for promotions, maintenance of employment, or another form of compensation.

Retaliation

Retaliation occurs when an employer takes a negative action, like termination, against an employee for engaging in a protected activity such as threatening to file a claim or actually filing a claim against the employer for a violation of law, engaging in recognized constitutional rights, taking time off to appear in court to comply with a subpoena or other court order, taking time off to engage in fire or law enforcement training, taking time off appear at a pupil's school at the request of the pupil's teacher, to participate in activities of the child's school, school emergencies or to locate or enroll the child in school or child care, for using sick leave to care for a child, parent, spouse, or domestic partner.

Wrongful Termination

California has three exceptions to the general rule that employment is "at will." If you have been terminated for reasons contrary to California public policy, breach of an implied contract for employment, or breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the relationship you may have a claim for wrongful termination

Wrongful termination claims can be challenging, that is why our attorneys are available to assist you in evaluating your claims and getting you a fair and just recovery.

Whistleblower

If you have evidence of illegal acts being committed by your employer, such as health and safety violations, falsification of documents or other deceptive business practices you have the right to report the unlawful conduct and maintain your job under the law.

If you have been fired or threatened with termination for reporting the illegal acts to authorities you may have a claim for lost wages, distress, and possibly punitive damages.

Qui Tam Actions

If you have first-hand knowledge that your employer is cheating the government you may be entitled to a portion of any of the money recovered. In some cases, this can be a very significant amount of money. Some employers cheat the government over long periods of time or over large amounts of money. If the person who works for the company brings this to light in an appropriate action, they may be entitled to a set portion of the full amount recovered.
