Q. What can i do about not getting paid minimum wage? And quitting because the owner refused to give me a raise?
A: You are entitled to the minimum wage compensation for all hours worked. You may also be entitled to derivate Labor Code violations and penalties.

You also may be entitled to loss of wages if you can prove constructive termination. A claim for constructive termination occurs when the employer's conduct effectively forces an employee to resign. These types of claims are fact-specific. A lot of details need to be known to evaluate if you have meritorious claims.

I suggest you consult an employment law attorney who will further examine your situation and explain your options. Most employment law attorneys in California offer free-of-charge initial consultations and thereafter may take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you do not have to pay attorney’s fees unless and until there is a positive outcome for you. They may also advance either all or partial costs of litigation.

You can look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section or go to California Employment Lawyers Association (www.cela.org), an organization whose members are committed to representing employees’ rights. Best of luck.

Sincerely,

Maya L. Serkova

Q. Can my employer separate my employment stating Job Abandonment yet not once did I receive a phone call from them?
A: I am sorry this happened to you. Under Fair Employment and Housing Act your employer has obligations to engage in the timely good faith interactive process and to provide a reasonable accommodation unless it poses an undue burden on the employer. It is unlawful to terminate an employee in retaliation for taking a medical leave. Your post misses important details; however, some facts do raise red flags.

Q. My former employer failed to protect me from domestic violence and sexual harassment in the workplace.
A: I am sorry this happened to you. More specific facts are needed to understand if you have any meritorious claims against your former employer.
