Los Angeles Employment Law Attorney
Fighting to Protect Employees’ Rights
You deserve to be treated with respect and given fair wages for the work you do. Unfortunately, many employers try to take advantage of their workers. If you believe that your employer has failed to pay you hours worked, violated your right to meal or rest breaks, retaliated against you, or otherwise treated you unfairly, reach out to KJT Law Group today. Our knowledgeable Los Angeles employment law attorneys are ready to fight for you to help ensure you are paid what you deserve.
KJT Law Group attorneys focus on wrongful termination, whistleblower, and retaliation cases, and workplace discrimination and mistreatment. We also handle discrimination cases related to disability, pregnancy, gender, national origin, and race, as well as other protected classes. We also help victims of wage injustices, such as overtime violations, unpaid wages and rest breaks, and missed meal periods.
We offer free initial consultations to help you be empowered to choose the best legal path. As a client-centered firm, we truly care about you and helping you keep the compensation you deserve. We limit the number of cases we accept in order to provide each and every one of our clients with highly attentive and personalized representation. We prioritize communication, transparency, and results.

Your Rights as an Employee in the State of California
Whether you are an employee, an independent contractor, or self-employed, you have certain rights. Workers in California are protected by numerous state and federal laws, all of which are meant to ensure workers are treated justly and fairly.
Some of your most basic rights as an employee in the state of California include:
- The right to be paid fair wages for the work you preform
- The right to a work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment
- The right to reasonable privacy in the workplace
- The right to a workplace that is reasonably safe and free of dangerous conditions or hazards
- The right to not be retaliated against by an employer for asserting any other right, including the right to file a complaint or whistleblower claim
It is also important to note that those who simply apply for employment are also guaranteed certain rights under state and federal laws. Most notably, potential employers cannot discriminate against candidates based on any protected class, such as race, color, creed, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, disability, genetic information, political affiliation or activities, marital status, citizenship status, and more.
This by no means is meant to be an in-depth discussion of all of your rights as a worker in the state of California. Rather, this represents just some of your many fundamental rights in the workforce. If you believe that any of your rights, whether those listed here or others, have been violated by an employer, potential employer, hiring manager, or another party, reach out to our Los Angeles employment lawyers at KJT Law Group today. We are happy to sit down with you to discuss your situation and advise you regarding your specific legal options.
