A Law Firm With the Knowledge and Resources to Make a Difference

Filing a lawsuit against your current or former employer can be a long process. While there are many attorneys out there who could take on your case, without the deep reservoir of knowledge specific to labor and employment law, the process may be even longer and more difficult. The Law Firm of James Hawkins APLC in Irvine has decades of experience preparing and taking these kinds of cases to court. We also have the resources necessary to make the best use of time and energy. When you believe that you have a complaint of discrimination, harassment, or another injury caused by your employer, contact us. Our team can set up a free consultation in order to fully understand your unique situation.


Areas of Practices

Our law firm can represent you in nearly any labor or employment law case, including:

  • Discrimination. Discrimination comes in many forms, including pay discrimination and a loss of opportunities based on a protected class.

  • Harassment. There are strict laws forbidding harassment in the workplace. A suit may be the only way to stop these patterns from continuing to repeat.

  • Overtime. If your position has overtime work, you are entitled to overtime pay. If your employer has not paid you for this work, or they have misclassified your employment status in order to not pay overtime, contact our attorneys.

  • Minimum Wage. Federal and state laws require every employer to pay a certain amount to all of their employees. If you are being underpaid, we may be able to help.

  • Breaks and Leave. Every employee is entitled to a certain number of breaks. Are you not getting the breaks you are supposed to get during your shifts? Were you not paid or provided with mandated holiday and sick leave? Contact us now.

The examples above are just a few examples of how we can help you deal with legal issues with your employer. For a free consultation with our attorneys, contact our office today.
