Chino Hills Attorney Services
Chino Hills was primarily rural prior to the mid-1970s; most land was utilized for equestrian purposes and for dairies, except for the multi-use purposes of the State of California, promoting jobs for your community through day labor from the Chino Institute for Men on Central Avenue. Rapid and extensive housing developments followed throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, only slowing down in recent years. Most neighborhoods are arranged in a village-type format with strategically placed shopping centers and parks designed to be within walking distance of nearby homes.
Chino Hills is home to the Vellano Country Club, a private golf course and housing development. Chino Hills is also the location of The Shoppes at Chino Hills. The mall features over 65 upscale stores and restaurants. The Shoppes is designed to be “Main Street Chino Hills” featuring the Chino Hills Government Center and Library in addition to retail outlets.

Everyone deserves dignity at their workplace, and it is unfortunate that sexual harassment has become so widespread in the modern-day American workspace, threatening the dignity of many hardworking employees. Sexual harassment ranges from unwanted sexual advances to derogatory comments which could at times progress to threats and consequently sexual assaults. Sexual harassment has hugely severe consequences for employees who can’t afford to risk their jobs. If you have been a subject of harassment at your place of work, you do not have to stay silent and be a victim. We understand, we believe you, and we could help you get the power back in your hands.
We can make the sexual harassment stop by convincing your employer to come in on your behalf. The harasser could be fired or relocated, or if you wish, you could be transferred to a new workplace. Our Chino Hills sexual harassment attorneys will help you through the entire process and ensure your employer adheres to the law throughout.
And if your employer is not willing to negotiate an outside-the-court resolution, a lawsuit could be in order. We represent sexual harassment victims in arbitrations and court. We believe that taking legal actions could bring balance and justice to any unfair situation.
The term “wrongful termination” is in most cases understood. Employers are permitted to make illogical, unfair, and bad decisions to terminate an employee as long as the action is not illegal. An absence of a written contract, under California Law, the employment relationship would be considered as an employment-at-will. Under employment-at-will, an employee can quit for any reason and an employer can terminate the employment for any reason as long as it does not violate a protected class. What makes actions “illegal” or “wrongful” is the motivation, that is the reason why an employer chooses to discipline, fire, or otherwise treat you differently. Some reasons are deemed perfectly legal, including financial concerns, personality differences, and for any other legitimate business purposes. However, reasons that are not legal if the termination/discrimination is based on national origin, race, gender, age, color, religion or disability, complaints about any unlawful acts, and use of health insurance benefits.
If you have just been terminated from your workplace, we can help you have a full comprehension of what your legal rights are. We can analyze the circumstances and reasons surrounding your termination and provide you with certainty in your difficult, highly-emotional situation. Our Chino Hills wrongful termination attorneys are able and willing to help you with your employment issue.
Wages and Hour (Wage Claim)
When you are working, it should be simple you get full compensation for your work hours. But the wages, hours, and compensation rules often get complicated, and employers often ignore the rules. The FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) sets the standard the manner the employee gets compensated in each industry, and how the employer pays for regular and overtime hours worked, and more.
- Unpaid Wages: It is mandatory for employers to pay overtime to all eligible hourly employees who work for more than the standard 8 hours a day or 40 hours per week. Unfortunately, employers find many ways to avoid this requirement by letting employees work “off the clock” or misclassifying them as salaried employees, failing to count the time an employee spends traveling during work, requiring an employee to do extra work in their home that is not compensated, and requiring an employee to work through rest or meal breaks.
In such a case, we can help you understand your rights and when push comes to shove, help you file a lawsuit against your employer. Our Chino Hills wage and hour attorneys are able and willing to help you with your wage claim.
Workers compensation is a mandatory insurance should be provided by an employer to their employee in case of a work injury.
