You can feel a sense of powerlessness as an employee whose rights have been violated. It can be intimidating when you’re trying to hold your employer accountable.

But it’s important to remember that you do not have to fight for your rights alone. If you want to strengthen your chances of winning your claim, contact the employment lawyers in Marin County at Minnis & Smallets LLP.

Types Of Employment Law Violations

Employment law violations are more common than people think. There are so many ways that your employer can commit work violations against you.

If your employer fails to pay you for any hours you’ve worked overtime, that is a wage and hour violation. If your employer makes a derogatory remark about your gender, that is a form of sexual harassment.

Your employer may also be discriminating against you when they decide to overlook you for promotions based on your age. These are just some employment law violations that happen daily, weekly, and monthly.

Hostile Work Environment

Another common employment law violation is creating a hostile work environment. Even though there may be tension at work between employees and management, employers are prohibited from deliberately making a workplace uncomfortable for all employees.

If you feel targeted by an employer, that employer may be making the workplace hostile for you on purpose. Hostile work environments can be created anytime, but they are more prone to happen after employees exercise their legal rights.

If your employer has engaged in unethical or illegal activities, you have the right to report them. Unfortunately, some employers may take that opportunity to retaliate against you and make it unbearable for you to work.


Another common employment law violation is retaliation. Retaliation is punishing an employee because they have engaged in a protected activity.

Protected activity may include practicing whistleblower rights and reporting your employer for labor law violations.

If your employer takes an adverse action against you because of your protected activity, that may be a form of retaliation.

Some adverse actions include demoting you, reducing your work hours, and terminating you. Retaliation can even include actions that prohibit other employees from taking the same protected actions.

If your employer retaliates against another employee because they reported them for sexual harassment, that may be a form of retaliation. That is why federal and state laws prohibit employers from retaliating against employees.

Proving Employment Law Violations

Even though some employment law violations are hard to prove, there are some actions that you can take that may make the process easier for you.

Whether your violation involves wages, discrimination, or sexual harassment, you want to keep an organized paper trail. You want to document each incident between yourself and your employer. You also want to keep copies to provide to an employment lawyer if you choose to hire one.
