Employees are the heart of every business and a company’s most valuable asset.
Workers don’t live to work, but many employees work to live and support their families. Aside from that, our work defines who we are and brings us pride. At Nabati Law we respect employees and put employees first. We know that companies are made up of individual employees who collectively create the workforce that drives America’s economy. Therefore, it is an employee’s job to invest in its people and treat them fairly and the law agrees.
Employees deserve to work in a workplace that is free from inequality, discrimination, and abuse. California and federal law protect employee’s rights. Employers hope that employees don’t know their rights, or worse, intimidate them into silence if they do. Thus, employers continue to subject workers to unfair and illegal conditions knowing that victims of their illegal practices are often too fearful to speak out.
Their unfair and discriminatory labor practices can range anywhere from misclassification, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour violations, retaliation, failure to pay commissions and fair wages, Family and Medical Leave and California Family Rights Act violations, defamation claims, severance agreements, failure to give a reasonable accommodation, and more.
These labor violations are not only illegal, but also cheat hard workers out of wages and benefits. Worse, hardworking employees miss opportunities to grow and earn more wages all while accumulating stress.
Don’t let employers benefit at your expense.

Negotiation: Once all the documents have been gathered and investigated, we will contact your employer and being negotiations.
File Requisite Government Complaint: Depending on your case, if the negotiations are unsuccessful, we will help you file a complaint with a formal government agency such as the Department of Fair Employment and Housing or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission if and when necessary for your claim. Similarly, we will file all the necessary Private Attorney General Act documentation to pursue your claim if necessary.
Lawsuit: Once the appropriate steps are completed in order to file a civil lawsuit against your employer, we will file your employment case in civil court against your employer.
