Employment Law

While California has enacted some of the strongest employee protection laws in the country, some employers disregard these laws and violate the rights of their employees. At the Steven M. Sweat, Personal Injury Lawyers, APC, APC, our Southern California employment lawyers and Los Angeles labor attorneys recognize the challenges faced by employees struggling to protect their rights against companies that violate California employment laws. Whether you need an overtime pay attorney in Los Angeles, a wrongful termination lawyer in San Diego, or an employment discrimination lawyer in Southern California, our employment law firm tenaciously takes on current or former employers who engage in unlawful practices against employees.

Although the prospect of taking on a large corporation with enormous financial resources can be daunting, our law firm balances the scales of justice in your favor by putting nearly forty years of experience in your corner. Our law firm has a proven track record of holding companies responsible for illegal policies and practices that violate the rights of workers. Our clients have received six and seven-figure judgments and/or settlements from employers that have unjustly terminated, failed to properly compensate, or unlawfully discriminated against their employees.

Our experienced Southern California employment law firm represents workers in civil legal actions subjected to various forms of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and other unlawful practices. While we obtain significant recoveries in many cases through negotiation and settlement, we are litigators who are prepared to tenaciously fight for our clients’ rights under state and federal law. Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys understand that the most effective negotiating position is a strong litigation position and a proven willingness to take cases to trial.

Our law firm aggressively pursues compensation for lost wages, emotional distress, and other applicable damages. We are thoroughly versed in the California Family Rights act, Fair Employment and Housing Act, California Labor Code, and other California employment laws that provide rights and remedies to employees in the workplace. We guide our clients through the complex and often intimidating process by navigating any required administrative process before filing your lawsuit. Because strict time limits and pre-filing administrative procedures might be required prior to commencement of your lawsuit, time is of the essence in seeking legal advice.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends.
★★★★★
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.

I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
