How Can An Executive Representation Lawyer Help Me?

An executive representation lawyer can be a powerful ally when navigating complex workplace disputes. Below is how an executive representation lawyer can help you with your potential workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation, underpayment, or backpay case:

  • Gather critical evidence, such as photos, pay stubs, and documentation, to build a compelling case on your behalf. 
  • Negotiate with your employer or work with their legal team. Working with an Orange County executive representation lawyer means you stand a much stronger chance of recovering unpaid wages or addressing issues like retaliation.
  • Help you file a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). If, upon investigating your case, the DFEH finds your workplace to be liable, they will likely issue you a right-to-sue notice, which your lawyer can use to bring a case like this on your behalf. 
  • Listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and be a trusted guide throughout your extensive legal process. 
  • Understand the statute of limitations governing your workplace discrimination or unpaid wages case, typically three years from the date the complaint was filed with the labor commissioner,  as dictated by the Stop Harassment and Reporting Extension (SHARE) Act. 

What Types Of Cases Can An Orange County Executive Representation Attorney Work On? 

Before hiring an executive representation lawyer, it’s important to know the areas in which they can assist. Below, we’ll explore the details of each type of case. 

Retaliation Against Orange County Executives

An executive representation attorney can advocate for executives who have faced retaliation in the workplace, whether it’s due to whistleblowing, exercising their legal rights, or other protected activities. They work to protect the rights and interests of their clients and seek remedies for any unlawful retaliation they’ve experienced.

For Orange County executives, retaliation can happen because of many circumstances, such as the following:

  • Whistleblower Retaliation
  • Pregnancy Discrimination Retaliation
  • FMLA Retaliation
  • Medical Leave Retaliation
  • Wrongful Termination

The California Labor Code, as well as federal law, protects workers from retaliation. 

Wrongful Termination Cases

When executives are wrongfully terminated, an executive representation attorney can provide legal representation to challenge the termination. They investigate the circumstances surrounding the termination, including potential violations of employment contracts, discrimination, retaliation, or other unlawful practices, and seek remedies such as reinstatement, back pay, and damages.

Unpaid Wages Cases 

In cases where executives have not received their rightful compensation, an executive representation attorney can help pursue unpaid wage claims. They navigate complex wage and hour laws to ensure their clients receive the wages they are owed, including unpaid salaries, bonuses, commissions, and other forms of compensation.

The California Labor Code has extensive protections for Orange County executives trying to receive wages rightfully owed to them.

Here are the types of unpaid wage cases an Orange County executive representation lawyer can help with:

  • Disability Benefits
  • Expense Reimbursements
  • Commission Pay
  • Overtime Pay
  • Standby Pay
  • Breach of Contract
  • Independent Contractor Misclassification

Workplace Discrimination or Harassment Cases

Executive representation attorneys assist executives who have experienced workplace discrimination or harassment based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation. They work to hold employers accountable for discriminatory or harassing behavior, seeking justice and compensation for their clients while advocating for a workplace free from discrimination and harassment.

Workplace discrimination of executives can fall under the following categories: 

  • Race Discrimination
  • Pregnancy Discrimination
  • Gender Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Marital Status Discrimination 
  • Reverse Discrimination
  • Hiring Discrimination
  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Workplace harassment of executives may be motivated by bias towards any of the above-protected classes or may be independent of them. Here are examples of different types of harassment an executive may experience on the job: 

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Hostile Workplace
