FAQ: Employment Law

  • What Is at-Will Employment?

    At-will employees do not have specified terms for employment. Usually, at will-employers do not provide written agreements or specify the grounds for termination. At-will employees can be fired by their employer with or without cause. An at-will employee does not need to be given notice before their termination.

  • What Should I Do If My Boss Won’t Let Me Take a Break?

    Employers have to provide meal periods that are no less than 30 minutes for a work period of more than 5 hours for each workday. Non-exempt employees are also entitled to take a 10 break for every four hours that they work. If your employer doesn't allow you to take your legally designated break period, then please reach out to our firm today so we can devise a customized legal strategy to pursue the compensation you deserve.

  • Can an Employer Keep an Employee's Final Paycheck?

    It’s illegal for an employer to withhold or deny an employee’s final paycheck. By law, an employee who is fired or quits must be paid all of their final earned wages. This includes vacation time or paid sick leave too.

We have helped countless workers in San Diego and across California achieve redress for discrimination or illegal employer practices. Unscrupulous employers often attempt to take advantage of workers who may be non-native speakers of English, immigrants who do not understand their rights as employees, and working people who are not knowledgeable about the protections afforded by federal and state employment law.

Clients trust our attorneys to defend their rights as workers and use the court system as leverage when negotiating with dishonest employers to achieve a fair and just settlement for employees. Unfortunately, the services of experienced employment lawyers are often required to compel such companies, corporations, and small businesses to comply with the law – or face a judge in a court of law and risk potentially even greater sanctions and costs to their business and reputation.

At Cohelan Khoury & Singer, our employment law team is committed to fighting employers who take advantage of their employees. We believe in using our skills and resources to level the playing field and giving our clients a strong, persuasive voice in the justice system. Whether you work for a small business or large corporation, we will work hard to make sure that your legal interests are fully represented.
