Torrance employees have many rights. California has a policy of vigorously enforcing labor standards in your workplace. Many laws have been adopted to protect the welfare of workers like you.

Even if you are no longer employed, you may be entitled to compensation for violations of your rights. If you are in Torrance, contact us today by calling (855) 783-9675.

We’ll take care of the details.
Our lawyers will interview you to understand the details of your specific case. We’ll then advise you on the possible benefits and risks of an employment lawsuit before we take any action. In many cases, Torrance employers are prohibited from retaliating against you for bringing a lawsuit against them. Whatever the situation, we will ensure that you are fully informed of possible consequences before a decision is made. The choice of whether or not to proceed with a lawsuit will be up to you; we cannot proceed with an employment lawsuit without your permission. Once a lawsuit is brought, our lawyers will work to protect your interests—both in an out of the courtroom. If you think you might have a case, call our Torrance lawyers for a free analysis: (855) 783-9675.
Every lawsuit is different, but we’ll be there to help you through.
Our lawyers will discuss every important action with you before we take it. We will also regularly update you on the status of your case as it changes. The best actions will, of course, depend on the facts of your case. In most cases, we will begin by trying to work with your employer outside of the legal system. If they are unwilling to pay you the compensation that you are owed, we discuss the options with you. Often, this will result in the filing of a lawsuit. Lawsuits go through several stages, including the filing of a complaint, the exchange of evidence, settlement discussions, and trials. Most cases settle before they go all the way through trial. To better understand the process involved, contact our Torrance lawyers. We can provide you an explanation of the process as it would apply to your specific case.
Being currently employed at your employer is not a requirement of bringing a lawsuit.
If your former employer violated your rights, you may be entitled to compensation. Your right to compensation does not depend on your continued employment at that job. An employer, for example, could not avoid paying for its mistakes merely by firing the employees who had their rights violated. Also, if you have earned wages that have not been paid, those wages are not forfeited merely because you quit. In many cases, this includes a right to vacation pay that you have earned. The extent of your rights may depend on how quickly you act. Most lawsuits will expire if you do not initiate them in time. The best way to secure your rights is to speak with a Torrance employment lawyer. Call the lawyers at Smith & Lo today for a free analysis: (855) 783-9675.

In some cases, yes.
Employers often misclassify their employees as independent contractors in order to save money—a mistake that is often costly.
Economic factors have played an important role for Torrance employers. Many businesses have found it easier to switch from full- or part-time employees to independent contractors. Often, one of the main goals of this switch is to avoid giving workers many of the benefits that employees enjoy. Often, however, an employer wrongfully classifies independent contractors and they can be responsible for numerous fees and damages to the employee.
It’s usually a good idea to hire an attorney.
Retaining an experienced employment attorney will result in your claims and concerns being taken seriously. As your attorneys, your employer will pay greater attention to your claims because they know there will be serious legal and financial consequences.
