Southern California Labor and Employment Lawyer Fights for Your Rights
Knowledgeable attorney provides aggressive legal services
Mistreatment on the job can have a terrible impact on your life. It negatively affects your earnings and assaults your dignity. Maybe you were passed over for a raise or promotion just because of your sex, your accent, or the color of your skin, or perhaps your employer cheated you out of overtime pay. You could also be the victim of retaliation simply for asserting your legal rights. If this has happened to you, you need a strong, proven advocate on your side. At the Olsen Law Offices, we strive to be your voice. We speak up for your rights, and we will not be silenced until you have received the compensation you deserve for the mistreatment you’ve suffered. For more than 10 years, we’ve been fighting for employee rights, and we’re ready to fight for you.
Experienced representation for a variety of labor and employment disputes
In our labor and employment law practice, we seek remedies for a variety of violations of our clients’ state and federal rights, including:
- Wage and overtime — State and federal laws mandate a minimum wage and overtime pay for wage workers after a set number of hours per day and per week. However, employers often misclassify workers to avoid the overtime requirement or make illegal deductions from workers’ pay, dropping them to an effective rate below the minimum wage. Where there is evidence of wrongdoing, we take decisive action to get our clients the pay they deserve.
- Sexual harassment — Making sexual demands on an employee or creating a hostile work environment constitutes harassment. Sexual harassment can come from an opposite-sex superior or one of the same sex. We fight for fair compensation for workers who have been subjected to sexual harassment.
- Unlawful discrimination — Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms. If you have been denied a job or suffered any disadvantage in the workplace due to your age, sex, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, ethnicity, nation of origin, disability or religion, you may be able to claim damages.
- Whistleblower protection — Employers cannot subject workers to adverse treatment because the worker has spoken up about an employer’s illegal activities. We help whistleblowers who have faced unlawful discipline claim compensation for their mistreatment.
For more than a decade, our practice has gained a reputation in the community for strong advocacy that delivers positive results.
Personal attention for your employment law issues
At the Olsen Law Offices, we take a personal approach to employment law cases. We understand how violations at work affect every aspect of your life: your goals for your career, your ability to provide for your family, and even your feeling of self-worth. We listen to your story, assess your circumstances and offer detailed advice about your options. In many cases, we can take immediate action to remedy the situation, but some circumstances require patience, as we gather additional evidence to strengthen your claim. Throughout the process, we engage with you personally, keeping you updated on any progress. We have succeeded in recovering more than $8 million in damages for our clients. We are prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve.
