There are protections in place for employees in California, and they afford important rights that are worth defending. When an employer discriminates against an employee, such as in relation to their sex or a disability – or otherwise fails to uphold their legal rights – it can lead to serious losses for the employee, who may be afraid to make waves by drawing attention to the matter.
Guiding a labor and employment claim successfully toward a favorable resolution, however, is complex, which makes working with an experienced San Mateo labor and employment lawyer from the start advantageous.
Employment laws in California are some of the most comprehensive in the nation – and they generally exceed federal requirements. Employers who have at least five employees are required to abide by all state and federal laws, and when they fail to do so, there are legal mechanisms in place that allow employees who are harmed by their employers’ negligence to seek fair compensation for their covered losses.

California employers who fail to live up to their responsibilities to their employees can cause considerable harm and can face legal consequences as a result.
When employers do not uphold their employees’ rights and fail to provide them with the protections to which they are entitled, it puts the affected employees in a vulnerable position. The seasoned San Mateo labor and employment lawyers at Minnis & Smallets recognize the challenges that employees who are discriminated against – or who otherwise are not treated fairly and in accordance with the law – experience and are committed to tirelessly advocating for their legal rights – in fierce pursuit of favorable claims resolutions.
