Oakland Retaliation For Complaints Lawyer

Your Employer Cannot Retaliate Against You for Wage or Hour Complaints

It is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against you for complaining about your employer’s unlawful wage and hour practices.

It is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against you for complaining about their unlawful wage and hour practices. This means that if you complain about not being properly paid, not receiving your meal or rest breaks, or any other wage and hour violation, your employer is not allowed to take an adverse employment action against you.

These adverse (i.e., negative) employment actions (retaliation for complaints) include:

  • Termination
  • Cut in pay
  • Less favorable job duties
  • Lower evaluation scores
  • Transfers
  • Reducing work load or responsibilities
  • Increasing work load or responsibilities
  • Threats
  • Harassing or ignoring the employee

It is impossible to list all of the types of adverse actions that your employer may take against you. However, if you have complained to a supervisor or the human resources department and the employer begins to treat you badly, then you may have a claim both for the wage and hour violations that you complained about as well as for the retaliation.

Sometimes, the retaliation claim may be stronger and more valuable than the violation that you originally complained about. The purpose of these legal protections is to permit employees to raise concerns about improper or illegal workplace practices without fear of retribution.

The law firm of Venardi Zurada LLP provides free initial consultations for retaliation for complaints throughout the San Francisco/California as part pf our wage and hour practice. We are experienced employment lawyers who fight hard for our clients. If we are able to take your case, we pay all litigation costs. We only get paid our costs and attorneys’ fees if you get compensation.

You can be confident in relying on our zealous and effective Oakland injury lawyers:

  • We have served Northern California for over 35 years.

  • Our attorneys have been honored with numerous accolades, including SuperLawyers, AV Rating, and Top 100 Trial Attorney Awards.

  • In our decades of legal service to the community, we have garnered a substantial reputation. We are respected by opposing counsel, feared by insurance companies, and followed by jurors.

  • We combine Big Firm experience with boutique office attention and care. Several of our attorneys have experience working for the biggest law firms in the country, including the most prominent maritime defense law firm. Our attorneys rely on that big-firm know-how but prefer the personal touch of a smaller firm, allowing us to provide individualized and attentive representation to each of our clients.

  • We’ve been through it, too. Attorney Mark Venardi had to personally deal with a medical malpractice injury he suffered at a time when he was working a blue-collar job on an offshore oil rig; he knows what it’s like to be a working man dealing with a personal injury. He built his way up to working for the biggest maritime defense firm in the country, before deciding to focus on helping people like himself who were hurt by negligence and mistreatment from others.

  • We like to fight for the underdog. Attorney Martin Zurada is an immigrant and the son of immigrants who tirelessly worked his way up through education and experience to attain the American dream. Even though he has served in large, high-level litigation law firms, he prefers helping clients directly, fighting against injustices, and securing victories for the little guy who has been wronged.

  • We win. We have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. In our combined tenure, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients across our broad areas of practice.

  • We care first and foremost about our clients. We dedicate ourselves to serve each and every client personally, and we make ourselves available to our clients around the clock.

  • There is no cost to you until we win. If we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. And all initial consultations are free of charge.

Dedicated Areas of Practice

We offer a wide range of litigation services for Oakland personal injury and employment law clients. Specifically, our areas of dedicated practice span the following issues:

Employment Law. California employers must assure proper pay to employees and comply with a variety of rules and regulations to prevent discrimination and unfair treatment of employees. We represent victims of wage and hour violations, employment discrimination, workplace harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and any other form of California workplace mistreatment. If you believe you were treated inappropriately at work, we can help.

Personal Injury. If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you deserve compensation. That’s where we come in. As Oakland personal injury attorneys, we right the wrongs done to our clients. And we do it at our cost during the entire duration of your case. There is never any fee until we win. Give us a call if you have been hurt in a car accident, by a toxic spill or contamination, as a result of medical malpractice, due to abuse or neglect, in a maritime accident, by a vicious animal attack, or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence.
