San Francisco Personal Injury
It is intimidating to assert your employee rights, especially against a large corporation or an intimidating boss. California’s laws are favorable to workers, but only if you invoke those protections. The San Francisco employment law attorneys of Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., can help you speak up and demand justice. We level the playing field for California workers who have been mistreated or taken advantage of by their employers.
Our experienced trial attorneys represent employees in negotiations and litigation against employers for illegal discrimination, harassment, reprisal or termination, or for violation of wage and hour laws. We also advise employees on sensitive matters such as severance packages, documenting employer abuses, whether to quit or be fired, and whether and when to file a lawsuit.

We have obtained notable results in helping clients stand up to wrongful practices. Our lawyers handle the full spectrum of employment matters, including:
Although California is an at-will employment state, meaning that without a contract you can be fired for no particular reason, you cannot be lawfully fired for a discriminatory reason. We have achieved excellent results prosecuting lawsuits against employers under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, California’s FEHA statute, and other state and federal protections.
If your employer has taken adverse employment actions or violated your employee rights under California or federal law, Contact the experienced San Francisco employment law attorneys of Bracamontes & Vlasak. We offer a free consultation, and we take most cases on a contingency fee basis. You can also schedule a consultation by calling us at 415.835.6777.
You do not have to be fired to have a lawsuit against your employer. Many times, discrimination takes subtler forms, such as unequal treatment, demotion, failure to promote or deliberate creation of a hostile work environment. If an employer takes these actions for a discriminatory reason, the employer may be subject to liability.
Discrimination or harassment directly from a supervisor can subject the employer to strict liability. If you are being subjected to discrimination or sexual harassment from a co-worker or subordinate, or even a customer, your employer also has the duty to take action.
Lawsuits generally must be filed within a year of the discriminatory conduct, or within six months if you are bringing suit against a government agency. We will help you understand your legal options and the protocols for documenting and reporting the mistreatment to your supervisor or superior. Our attorneys will skillfully advocate for you at every step of the process, including settlement negotiations or representation at hearings and trial.
