California's Workers' Compensation Law is applicable to most employers. The statute requires employers to obtain insurance to cover potential workers' compensation claims, and sets up a fund for claims against employers who have illegally failed to have insurance.
One type of workplace injury is Specific Injury which can happen by a specific incident in a split second such falling, tripping, carrying heavy object, etc. The other type of workplace injury is Cumulative Trauma and is caused by having the employee doing a repetitive action over a period of time which causes a cumulative trauma injury. Regardless of the type of the workplace injury, the ramifications can last a lifetime. At Rawa Law Group, APC in Chino Hills, California, we understand the new California workers compensation process and will work tirelessly to get our clients all the benefits available to them under the California's Workers' Compensation Law.
One of the most devastating things in life is being injured since your injury could prevent you from earning your living, and the treatment cost of your work injury may not be covered by your health insurance.

One of our top commitments at the Rawa Law Group, APC is to work hard to provide you with the information you need, and to explain all the legal options available to you to assist you in making the right choices regarding your income, benefits and medical care.

Wrongful Termination

Employees are often fired or let go from a job for many different reasons. Some terminations violate certain labor laws that exist to protect employees. These situations of 'œwrongful termination' are unfair and legally prohibited. Employers can be held accountable if they wrongfully terminate an employee.
In incidents where unfair and unjust treatment has occurred in the workplace, it is important for individuals to know that they can seek help from qualified and experienced employment law attorneys in obtaining justice and compensation for work related issues that they may be the victims of. At Rawa Law Group we represent employees from Los Angeles and throughout Southern California in protecting their rights under federal and state employment law.

When to File a Claim for Wrongful Termination:

There are several different types of situations that may warrant a claim of wrongful discharge from an employee. It is important for employees to know what these possible scenarios are so that in the event that they experience one, they will know that they can pursue litigation against their employer for damages. An employment law attorney can assist in those times to ensure that your rights are protected. Situations when an employee should file a claim for wrongful termination include:
If the employee is fired before his contract term is up and the contract is violated
When the employer fires an employee to get back at him for filing a claim against the employer, either for violating workplace safety laws or some other type of law, and it is within the employee's right to do so.

If the employer asks the employee to do something illegal and unsafe and the employee is fired for refusing to do it.
When an employer fires or lays off an employee and violates federal, state or local anti-discrimination laws by doing so. The employer might wrongfully breach the terms and conditions of employment due to race, color, nationality, sex, religion, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation and age.
If the employer violates their own termination policies that are written in the handbook
When the employer fires an employee for taking time off that he or she is legally entitled to, such as military service or voting
When the employee is fired for being a member of a protected class or group

If you have been fired or laid off recently by your employer and think that they were unlawful when they terminated your employment, then you may be entitled to file a claim against them. An employment law attorney can assist you with your claim. The employment law attorneys at Rawa Law Group have extensive experience handling wrongful termination cases and will work to ensure that your rights are protected under the law. Contact us for a confidential evaluation of your case today.

Job Discrimination

Job discrimination occurs when an employee or someone seeking a job receives unfair treatment because of his or her gender, race, skin color, national origin, disability, religion or age. Employment laws prohibit discrimination in any part of employment including during the hiring process. Unfortunately, employees are still discriminated against in the workplace every day.
If you are employee and have been the victim of discrimination, you may want to seek legal advice for your case. In California, the team of attorneys at the Rawa Law Group has experience representing employees who have been victims of discrimination and have achieved consistent positive outcomes for them.

Overtime Pay

If you are not fully compensated for your Wages and you Overtime we can help.
Employment Wage & Hours - Employment Attorney

In the state of California, labor may be paid in different forms of pay by different companies. Companies might pay their employees by an hourly rate which must exceed or be equal to the minimum wage in the state of California. An employer may also pay an individual a salaried or set amount of pay per week or per pay period. This must also equal or exceed the minimum wage following the statutes of labor laws in California.
Commissions may be paid for sales of a product or service, and must be an agreed upon percentage of the product being sold or the service being performed. If a person is fired, those commissions owed must be paid at the time of termination. If the person quits, the company has seventy two hours to pay owed commissions.

Here are some of the reasons why you may need a lawyer:

If you are paid for piece work, and you are getting paid less than the minimum wage for the each hour you spent on piece work.
If you are an hourly employee and your employer misclassified as salaried employee,
If you are terminated and your employer did not pay you fully for all compensation due to you at the time of termination,
If you work off the o'clock and not compensated for such work,
If you have unpaid wages, commission, accrued vacation, overtime, etc.
