As a member of the Employment Law Division at Fernandez & Lauby LLP, I handle matters involving all aspects of employment in both the public and private sectors. Our main focus is representing employees who have been subjected to wage and hour violations on both a class and individual basis. Additionally, we pursue claims for wrongful termination, retaliation, harassment (Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)), FMLA leave, pregnancy discrimination/leave entitlement, whistle-blower retaliation, labor code violations, independent contractor misclassification, among various other issues that arise in the employment context.
Additionally, we vigorously pursue class, representative, and/or collective actions for violations of the California Labor Code and related statutes and/or laws (Industrial Welfare Commission etc.), as well as the Fair Labor Standars Act (FLSA). We have a large variety of different class and/or collective actions currently pending and are familiar with the particular obstacles that employees face when attempting to assert their lawful rights to proper payment including mechanics, nurses and/or other persons employed in the healthcare industry, and hourly or nonexempt employees in all industries.
