Representing Private and Federal Employees throughout California
As an employee, you should never have to put up with unlawful treatment. If you have faced discrimination, sexual harassment, wage violations, wrongful termination, or any other type of misconduct, you may be able to recover compensation and other forms of relief. You must act quickly, however: There are strict deadlines for bringing claims against your employer. Our employment lawyer has 35 years of experience handling workplace disputes and is ready to provide friendly, results-driven advocacy throughout each step of the process. Bennett Legal Services is committed to championing the rights of employees and will do everything we can to help you get the justice you deserve.
We make it our mission to protect and enforce the rights of private and federal employees involved in employment disputes. In many cases, you will need to file a claim with an enforcement agency, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), before you can sue your employer. Our team at Bennett Legal Services is extensively familiar with both the administrative and litigation processes and will fight for you every step of the way.
Our employment attorney can represent you if your rights were violated under the:
- California Fair Employment and Housing Act
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Equal Pay Act
- Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
No one wants to learn they missed their chance to hold an employer accountable for a legitimate grievance. Private employees may only have 180 days to file a claim with the EEOC, and federal employees get even less time, typically only having 45 days to start administrative proceedings. The sooner you get in touch with a legal professional after experiencing unlawful treatment, the better. We can help you understand how much time you have to file, what the process will involve, and what types of compensation you may be able to recover.
