Have Your Employment Rights Been Violated?

Employment law refers to the law that is for the protection of workers. It includes their rights to work in an environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. Employment law also sets forth minimum standards to wages, hours, and working conditions employers cannot violate. In California, we have the most complex and protective employment laws applicable to workers. More than any other state, California protects your rights to minimum wage, overtime wages, meal breaks, rest breaks, timely paychecks, vacation pay, to name a few. California has these strong laws for the protection of workers because its all too often standard procedure for companies to ignore the wage and working condition rights of employees in pursuit of maximizing their profits.

This complex, protective web of California worker rights laws does you no good, though, if you do not have a lawyer or law firm with an intense dedication to representing California workers for wage and hour violations. The law is just too complex for the casual lawyer who occasionally represents California workers. The lawyers at Mara Law Firm have that unmatched dedication, passion, and talent to win your California wage loss case. Contact our office immediately and start the journey to restoring what your employer took from you.

Mara has an ability to cut to the essence of things quickly. I have consulted with Mara several times over the last 9 years and he has provided me with legal advice that has been immensely valuable.” – Jonathan P.

Our California Employment Law Attorneys specialize in representing California workers in class actions or other representative actions. A class action is a powerful tool that allows the wage and hour rights of masses of employees to be fought for in a single lawsuit. If your employer is violating your rights, such as not paying you for all your work time, or is not providing you meal and rest breaks, you are probably not alone. They are likely violating your co-workers in the same way. California class actions and representative actions allow all these claims to be brought in a single lawsuit against the employer.

We have loaded our website with content to help inform you at this early stage of fighting for what you’ve lost at the hands of your employer. Please take advantage of all this information through the following links, and contact our office to speak to one of our dedicated California worker lawyers.

    • I remember screaming at a dear friend of mine saying, “WHY WON’T THE INSURANCE COVER MY TREATMENT!” He said, “…because they know if they do it will increase your settlement.” I said, “WHAT SETTLEMENT! I JUST WANT TO GET TREATMENT! I DIDN’T ASK FOR A SETTLEMENT!” Somewhere I found out that for some insurance companies they are more concerned with protecting their money. This means you are thinking about treatment and getting better while they are thinking about money. Get someone that is on your side that will fight for you. They fought for me…and won.

    • Mr. Mara and his firm helped me file a claim for death benefits on behalf of my late husband. I was very pleased with his knowledge, research, and representation regarding my DBA claim for death benefits. I would absolutely recommend him and its associates to my friends, family, and others needing an attorney who specializes in employment, personal injury, and death benefits. Mr. Mara was very compassionate, timely, and responsive to my family’s needs. I can’t thank him enough.

    • Mr. Mara and his staff were very professional and I would highly recommend Mr. Mara. Mr. Mara had my best interests in settling my case and I am very appreciative of all he and his staff did for me. If I ever needed help or had simple questions, Mr. Mara and his staff were always available to take my calls and help me. Highly recommend this firm!

      DebSan Francisco

    • Dave Mara  comes with a very high recommendation. He took a workmans compensation case for me and really handled it well. It was an unclear case, and a new issue that the WC most likely had never seen. He kept me up to date with the long confusing process and was very understanding and sympathetic to my plight( I was the victim of a violent crime). Dave has no big lawyer shenanigans and dramatic posing, he is a down to earth, fair , honest hard working lawyer who really does not seem like an an attorney at all. I recommend anyone in the SD area to consult with Dave it was a painless process.
