Strengthening The Workplace By Protecting Workers' Rights

Your work is important to you. It becomes more than just a paycheck; it is part of your identity in your community and among family and friends. You probably spend more time at your job than anywhere else, including at home with your family. You work hard and in return, you have the right to stand up for the dignity and sense of security it provides you and your family.

At Rothschild & Alwill, APC, we believe you should feel both safe and respected at work. We are among the pre-eminent employment law firms representing workers in Santa Barbara County, Kern County, Ventura County and San Luis Obispo County, California.

It Is Difficult For Workers To Stand Up To Their Employers — That's Our Job

Most workers have never been in that situation before. That is where the lawyers at Rothschild & Alwill, APC, make the difference. Having a skilled, confident and experienced attorney on your side means your voice will be heard.

Experience Across A Full Range Of Employment Law Areas

We provide legal representation to employees and independent contractors who have had their rights violated in the following types of cases:

  • Discrimination: If you are being treated illegally because of your race, gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability or pregnancy, we will work to make things right.
  • Wage theft: Is your boss paying you less than minimum wage? Are you being cheated out of overtime pay? Are you an unpaid intern or an independent contractor who is doing the job of a regular employee? We will help get you the paycheck you deserve.
  • Sexual harassment: If someone at work is touching you against you will, pressuring you into sex or making you uncomfortable because of your gender, call us as soon as possible to put a stop to this. We have strong experience representing workers in the LGBT community.
  • Retaliatory disciplinary actions: If you were demoted, denied a justified promotion or transferred to a job beneath your skill level as retaliation for filing a complaint, applying for family medical leave or a workplace injury, your employer may be guilty of illegal retaliation.
  • Wrongful termination: Employers don't have the right to fire you because you demanded fair pay, requested maternity leave or tried to protect your rights against harassment or discrimination. We will help you get your job back.
Class-Action Litigation
If you work for a major corporation and are experiencing violations of your workplace rights under state and federal law, chances are that other co-workers are facing the same issues. Talk to us about starting or joining a class-action lawsuit to fight for positive change in your workplace.
