Types of Cases We Handle

  • Wage and hour violations – Unfortunately, there are many employers out there who do not have their employees' best interests in mind, but rather their own gain. You might find yourself a victim of wage theft through unpaid overtime or rest and meal period violations. Perhaps you have not been adequately reimbursed for business expenditures or have received paystubs with inadequate or inaccurate information. Our legal team is ready to fight for your rights and get you compensated.
  • Discrimination – Do you think you have been mistreated in the workplace due to your race, gender, health condition, or another characteristic? You could be a victim of job discrimination. If you were fired, demoted, not hired, or experienced any other adverse treatment by your employer for any discriminatory reasons, we can help you file a lawsuit against your employer.
  • Sexual harassment – No matter the industry, sexual harassment is one of the most prevalent labor law violations in the workplace. There are a variety of actions that can constitute sexual harassment on the job, including unwanted touching, sexually explicit language, obscene or inappropriate gestures, sexual favors in exchange for employment benefits, and more. If you are the victim of workplace sexual harassment, get in touch with Carter Law Firm today so we can advise you on your legal options.
  • Wrongful termination – Although California is an "at-will" employment state, meaning that an employee may be fired for any reason or no reason at all, there are limitations to ensure a person is not wrongfully fired. For example, an employee cannot be terminated for an illegal reason, such as discrimination against someone who belongs to a protected class or retaliation for filing a complaint or whistleblowing. If you think your termination of employment was unlawful, get in touch with us today for the right representation.
  • Employment class actions – A class action lawsuit is a case that is brought against an employer by one or more individuals on behalf of the many who have been wronged by a labor law violation. At Carter Law Firm, we handle a variety of wage and hour - class actions, including wrongful termination, discrimination/harassment, and wage and hour disputes. Over the past 10 years alone, we have recovered over $250 million for clients in class action lawsuits.
  • Mass Torts - A mass tort occurs when a company’s product or device results in injuries to others. A mass disaster or environmental disaster, such as an airplane crash or an oil spill, can also result in a mass tort lawsuit. At Carter Law Firm, our experienced legal team is skilled in handling mass tort cases. Backed by a reputation for successful results and compassionate care, you can rest assured your case will be in good hands when you choose to work with us.
