The employment lawyers at LAW OFFICES OF TERRY K. DAVIS represent employees whose rights have been violated by their employers in the workplace. Our employment attorneys focus their practice on representing employees who have been wrongfully terminated, many times based on discrimination. Employers commit various types of discrimination, including age discrimination, disability discrimination, discrimination based on race, gender or sexual orientation.
With 25 years of experience Mr. Davis has tried numerous labor and employment cases including disability (“ADA”) rights, age, race, national origin, gender discrimination and harassment, whistleblower and wage and hour matters.
A veteran of many trials to verdict, he understands how to prepare and present a case. He was presented with the Landmark Achievement Award by the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association in 2006 for his unanimous verdict in trying the first Third-Party Sexual Harassment case in California that resulted in a unanimous decision in California that changed the law in California mandating that employers have a duty to protect their employees from harassment.
Mr. Davis has litigated in U.S. District Courts, State Trial Courts, Federal (9th Circuit) and State Courts of Appeal and the California Supreme Court.
Our employment lawyers also represent clients for “wage and hour” violations. Examples of “wage and hour” violations are when employees have not been paid their overtime or are not provided with adequate lunch or meal breaks or even some employees who are misclassified as independent contractors. We also have a strong commitment to representing clients who have been sexually harassed or retaliated against by their employer.
California is known as an “at will” employment state, meaning employees can quit a job when they want and “generally” can be fired at will. However, just because California is “at will” does not mean your employer can take advantage of you by firing, demoting or cutting your pay for reasons that are against the law.
In these tough economic times, more than ever, employers are cutting corners and violating employees’ rights in the process, just to save costs and increase stock price. Most employees do not even know they have had their rights violated because employment laws are not widely publicized. However, these employment laws exist to protect employees against abuses by employers.
