Defending Workers’ Rights And Dignity
As a former restauranteur, I know the value of hard work, and the satisfaction that comes from being able to provide for yourself and your loved ones. I also know that every worker – no matter their occupation, first language or national origin – deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.
Too often, however, employers exploit employees who are simply trying to earn an honest living, and trample workers’ rights to safety and security.
At The Agadzhanyan Firm, P.C., I am deeply committed to defending workers from harassment, abuse and mistreatment of all kinds. From my Glendale office, I serve Californians in Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties.
Committed To Challenging Workplace Discrimination
California has some of the nation’s most assertive protections for employees. State law prohibits workplace discrimination, including harassment, on the grounds of:
- Race or color
- National origin
- Sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity
- Physical or mental disability
Discrimination can take many forms, from unwelcome comments or advances to outright denial of work, promotions, or opportunities. If have been unfairly treated during the hiring process, course of work, or in firing, I can help you gather the evidence and build the arguments you need to remedy your mistreatment.
A Vigorous Opponent Of Exploitation
Despite numerous laws mandating proper working conditions, payment, and rest and leave times, many California employers take advantage of their workers by attempting to classify them as exempt from these protections, or by ignoring these protections entirely. Employer abuses can include, but are not limited to:
- Denial of overtime pay
- Denial of rest or meal breaks
- Wage theft or improper wage deductions
- Creation of unsafe or dangerous working conditions
- Denial of family or medical leave
If your employer is failing to abide by the terms of your work agreement, fostering hazardous conditions or denying you the pay and benefits you are entitled to, contact The Agadzhanyan Firm, P.C.. I will work with you directly to understand your situation, assemble your case, and forcefully assert your rights and dignity. For a free consultation, complete my online form or call 213-295-5555. I take all cases on a contingency basis and will only collect payment if you win.
