Employment Law For Employees

Wilton Law & Mediation represents employees in matters where employers or other institutions have violated federal or state employment, anti-discrimination, or civil rights laws. Both federal and California laws, regulations and case decisions prohibit discrimination and harassment in the workplace, in housing, in education and in other businesses.

Often, it is quite difficult to identify whether a person has actually been the victim of actionable, wrongful conduct. The law does not provide a remedy for every demotion, termination, harsh word or unfair supervisor decision, and it takes an experienced and educated lawyer to identify whether the action taken was unlawful. Frequently, clients believe they have a claim under one theory, such as wrongful termination, only to learn during the initial client interview that their employment involved many violations of the law. Most employees believe his or her termination was "wrongful" and unfair, but the law does not provide a remedy in every instance.

At Wilton Law & Mediation, all initial consultations are always free to the prospective client. Many times, the advice provided during that consultation is sufficient to resolve his or her concerns.

Some of the employment-related issues or matters Wilton Law & Mediation handles include:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful termination
  • Wage and hour issues
  • Gender-based discrimination, including equal pay and promotion including so-called "glass ceiling" claims
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Racial discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination, perceived and actual
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination, including claims involving temporary disability issues
  • Discrimination involving leaves of absence
  • Employee rights issues
  • Retaliation

Special Note

Employees accused by a co-worker of sexual harassment are entitled to have a lawyer represent them. In many instances, the employee can choose the attorney of their choice, paid for by their employer. This occurs most often where there may be a conflict of interest between the employer and the employee. Ronald D. Wilton represents supervisors and managers accused of sexual or racially based harassment at no cost to the accused employee under such circumstances.
