Employment Law in California

Employees in California are protected by state and federal laws that prevent various forms of mistreatment at the hands of their employers. One way in which employers violate the rights of employees in California is through discrimination. The law aims to prevent various forms of discrimination. For instance, employers who discriminate against an individual for their age, race, sex, gender, or disability will be in violation of the law.

In many cases, workers will face difficult circumstances because of a bias on the part of their employer. In the case of disability, employers are required to provide certain accommodations as long as doing so does not create an undue burden on the business. Despite such requirements, many employers will refuse to hire or will fire or otherwise negatively impact an employee’s position based on a disability. Employers must take reasonable steps to accommodate disabled employees. The process often involves an interaction between the employer and the employee to develop strategies to improve the employee’s ability to function effectively in the workplace.

When these unfortunate events occur, it is important for the employee to understand that they have rights. Approximately one out of every four Americans have some form of disability. Our attorneys understand that many of these Americans are hard-working and good at their jobs. At the Costanzo Law Firm, we work to protect these workers as well as any other individuals facing discrimination in the workplace. If you believe your employer discriminated against you because you are part of one of the many protected classes under California or federal law, call us today to discuss your claim.

Wrongful Termination

The dedicated San Jose employment lawyers at the Costanzo Law Firm represent individuals who suffer termination from their jobs for reasons that violate California law. As mentioned, employers are prevented from terminating an employee for discriminatory purposes. However, there are other ways in which an employer may wrongfully terminate an individual. Wrongful termination may occur because of a violation of a contract or as retaliation because the employee served as a whistleblower. If you were wrongfully terminated by your employer, contact the Costanzo Law Firm to discuss your options for pursuing a claim.

Business Litigation

The attorneys at the Costanzo Law Firm are experienced in handling sophisticated business litigation matters. If you have questions regarding lawsuits involving your company, contact us to discuss your legal options and build a strategy that protects your corporate interests. We work with our clients to find a solution that fits their needs. In many cases, disputes can be resolved through an alternative form of dispute resolution, such as arbitration or mediation. If those methods are not appropriate in your case, we are fully prepared to take your matter to trial. Call us to learn more about how we can help you.

Personal Injury Law

Personal injury claims often involve negligence. Some of the most common forms of personal injury cases involve car accidents. Suffering injuries because of another person’s actions is a frustrating scenario that can sometimes be devastating and even tragic.

If you were injured in an accident, contact the Costanzo Law Firm today to learn about your legal options.

Elder Abuse Cases

Hundreds of thousands of elderly individuals in California live in either licensed or unlicensed assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, many of these individuals live in poor conditions and suffer abuse at the hands of the individuals who should be providing them protection and care. Many people in assisted living facilities suffer from some form of dementia or have other health complications that make these individuals particularly vulnerable to various forms of abuse. At the Costanzo Law Firm, our attorneys work to protect this vulnerable population. To learn more about how we can help represent you and your family in an elder law abuse case, contact us today.
