San Diego Employment Attorney
Welcome to the law office of John P. Martin, Attorney at Law, your trusted San Diego employment lawyer.
Our mission is to protect the rights and interests of employees in a diverse range of workplace disputes. Employment law can be complex and fraught with challenges, influencing the lives of individuals and the functioning of businesses. We step in to help clients navigate this intricate field, ensuring fairness and justice in all employment-related matters.
Employment law governs the relationships between employers, employees, and labor unions. It encompasses various aspects including, but not limited to, the following examples:
Discrimination Cases: A common example might involve an employee filing a lawsuit against their employer for racial or gender discrimination. For instance, if an employee was passed over for a promotion in favor of a less qualified candidate of a different race or gender, they may have a viable case.
Wage and Hour Disputes: A group of employees might sue their employer for failing to pay overtime wages. An example of this could be a group of restaurant servers who were required to clean and close the restaurant after hours without receiving overtime pay.
Wrongful Termination: An employee may sue if they were fired in violation of their employment contract or in retaliation for reporting unsafe working conditions.
Worker’s Compensation: An employee injured on the job may seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. For example, a construction worker who fell from scaffolding due to a lack of proper safety equipment could file a claim.
Family and Medical Leave: If an employer denies a rightful request for medical or family leave, or penalizes an employee for taking such break, that employer might be sued. An example might be an employee being fired after taking maternity leave or leaving to care for a sick family member.
Privacy Rights: An employee could file a claim against their employer if the employer unlawfully intruded into their privacy. This could be something like an employer installing surveillance cameras in an employee’s home without consent.
Understanding employment law is crucial for both employers and employees. It helps to ensure a fair, safe, and equitable working environment. When disputes arise, employment law guides the resolution process and offers protection to all parties involved.
