Work is an important part of life. Because people spend so many of their waking hours working, conflicts and difficult conditions on the job can have a devastating and cascading effect on all parts of a person's life.
The California employment attorneys at The Armstrong Law Firm are dedicated to obtaining justice and fair compensation for victims of sexual harassment, discrimination, intimidation or unfair employment practices in the workplace. We are one of the largest, most-trusted employee-only law firms in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay Area.
Unlike many other employment law firms in Northern California, we only handle employee rights cases, so we bring more knowledge and experience to every case we represent.
You Have A Right To A Safe Work Environment
In California, workers' rights are protected by California and federal employment law. Our San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco employment law attorneys help employees whose right to work in a respectful and dignified environment has been violated. Our labor lawyers also work hard to obtain compensation for any losses caused by wrongful termination, employment discrimination or harassment.

Wrongful Termination, Workplace Discrimination And Sexual Harassment
At The Armstrong Law Firm, our experienced San Jose wrongful termination lawyers are skilled at protecting the rights of employees. Our depth of knowledge and ability to prosecute challenging cases provide our clients with aggressive representation and advocacy under the law. We are committed to protecting employees against:
- Wrongful termination
- Sexual harassment
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Gender discrimination
This protection extends to helping employees bring forth evidence of illegal activity on the part of their employer in whistleblower fraud and qui tam cases.
When It's About The Money
Sometimes when employers cut financial corners, they do so at the expense of their workers. You don't have to endure unfair payment schemes just to save your employer a few bucks. Some employers will incorrectly identify a worker as an independent contractor to avoid having to pay benefits. Sometimes an employer won't pay for meal or rest breaks, or will force a worker to do extra duties before or after work for no pay. You may have been denied the FMLA or pregnancy leave to which you are entitled. These are unfair and illegal practices, and you don't have to endure it for the fear of losing your job.
Disability Discrimination Is Wrong
When an individual unexpectedly suffers a disabling injury, this can impact his or her ability to work. Although there are employment laws protecting disabled employees, such as the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers still violate these laws. If you or your loved one is a victim of disability discrimination, our workplace discrimination attorneys in San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco are extremely knowledgeable in this area of the law and can help you reinforce your rights.
Fighting Sexual Harassment
If you are a sexual harassment victim, contacting an attorney for the first time can be intimidating. Our Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco sexual harassment attorneys understand that and recommend that you simply call us so we can hear your story and explain to you:
- What your rights are
- The pros and cons of your potential sexual harassment case
The Armstrong Law Firm can defend your rights and help you pursue justice against your harasser and employer so that you have an opportunity to be made whole. Our attorneys in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose are experienced in sexual harassment cases and you can read the many recent testimonials from our clients to see what kind of representation we would provide you.
Bringing Sexual Abuse To Light
Sexual abuse of children or vulnerable adults is illegal and damaging and need not be tolerated. Especially when the abuser is a formerly trusted coach, teacher or clergy member, the sense of betrayal and hurt can be enormous, and the effect it has on a person's life can be long-lasting. If you or someone you love has been (or you suspect has been) sexually abused, you don't need to suffer in silence. Our attorneys are committed to holding abusers responsible for their actions, and securing justice for their victims. When you come in for your free initial consultation, we can go over the details of your situation and make sure you have all the information you need to make a good decision about your next steps.
