Many employees believe that they do not have the right to hold supervisors, business owners and colleagues accountable for retaliation, sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination or other forms of discrimination and unlawful treatment in the workplace.
The truth is, employees have rights under the law. Employee rights lawyer Deborah Barron has been helping workers in Walnut Creek combat unlawful employment practices since 1991. Built on her experience, the Barron Law builds strong cases on behalf of workers in those areas who have been mistreated by their employers.
Attorney Barron has experience representing employers as well. In fact, she has trained human resources departments at various companies on properly handling employment law issues. This allows her to see both sides of a case and anticipate some of the arguments an employer is likely to use.
Barron Law has successfully represented employees in and around Sacramento, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek who were facing serious issues related to:
- Sexual harassment
- Retaliation against workers, including whistleblower retaliation
- Involuntary resignation
- Wrongful termination
- Discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation or any other characteristic
- Failure to accommodate mental or physical disabilities
Do not let your right to file a claim against your employer lapse because you were unaware of the timeline for filing a case with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Department of Employment and Housing. Talk to our lawyer about how best to protect your rights.
A Note on Severance Packages
If your employer has offered a severance package in an effort to get you to leave the company, it is a good idea to have the agreement reviewed by a lawyer in Walnut Creek. We regularly review severance agreements to make sure that workers aren’t giving up their rights. Often, workers have potential legal claims against the employer, but they sign a severance agreement that eliminates the right to sue. We are available to review all aspects of your agreement and advise you accordingly.
