San Diego Labor & Employment Lawyer
Labor and Employment law includes areas such as wage and hour claims, safety and health standards, whistleblower protections, and wrongful termination. California has many laws in place to protect its employees, including the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The California Fair Labor Standards Act establishes standards for minimum wages, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor. These standards affect workers who are both full‑time and part‑time and in both the private and public sectors.
The California Occupational Safety and Health Act has two regulatory functions: setting standards and conducting inspections to ensure that employers are providing safe and healthful workplaces. Compliance with standards
may include implementing engineering controls to limit exposures to physical hazards and toxic substances, implementing administrative controls, as well as ensuring that employees have been provided with, have been effectively trained on, and use personal protective equipment when required for safety and health, where the former controls cannot be feasibly implemented.
