California has some of the most protective employment laws in the United States. California employers must provide certain rights above and beyond the federal minimum employment laws, including in areas of wages, meal periods and rest breaks, discrimination and harassment, time off from work, privacy, and other areas. Cities and counties can also require employers to provide additional rights. At the Law Offices of Ryutaro Hirota, we are familiar with employment law requirements and help both employers and employees to understand their relevant rights and responsibilities under the law.
Employment laws change often and are affected both by new or amended laws and court cases. The multi-layered aspect of these laws can be complex, and both employers and employees should be familiar with their rights. If you need help understanding employment laws and how they may affect you or your business, please contact our office for a free, thirty-minute consultation.
