Meet Bryan McCormack
"The best part of my work is helping employees who have been treated unfairly obtain justice."
He believes that representing people who are treated unfairly in the workplace is the best way to make a positive difference in their lives. He fights to give employees an advantage and tip the balance of power in workers’ favor so they can successfully take on powerful employers.
The law is on your side and so are we.
McCormack Law Firm is equipped to provide workers with legal representation in all types of employment law cases. Your background, job title or income level do not affect the strength of your case. Our employment law attorneys have an in-depth knowledge of the law and the skills necessary to get a successful resolution.
Getting unlawfully fired from your job is one of the most stressful experiences you can go through.
It is unlawful for your employer to terminate you for an illegal discriminatory or retaliatory reason-such as because of your race or national origin, disability or medical condition, sex, age, or certain other traits. It is also unlawful for your employer to fire you for complaining about unpaid wages, discrimination, harassment, or that your employer violated a law ("whistleblowing").
If you were fired from your job, there are many factors to consider when determining whether the termination was unlawful or not. The employment lawyers at McCormack Law Firm are committed to helping wrongfully terminated workers get the compensation they are owed. We will assess your case and find out if you have the legal grounds for a wrongful termination claim.
WAGE & HOUR VIOLATIONS
You deserve timely payment of all wages and commissions, and California law requires it.
Even if your employer pays you a salary, says you are “exempt” or an “independent contractor,” you may be eligible for overtime pay. It is best to call an attorney if you have any doubt. Workers in some very high-paying professional jobs like sales or IT may be entitled to overtime pay.
You should also check with an attorney if your employer withholds sales commissions or changes your commission plan without approval. Our lawyers can determine what you are owed and recover your unpaid wages, overtime or commissions.
Subjecting an employee to sexual harassment on the job is never acceptable.
McCormack Law Firm strongly believes in taking a stand against sexual harassment at work. There are many different ways an employee may experience sexual harassment. Some common examples of sexually harassing behaviors are comments about someone’s appearance, lewd jokes, unwelcome sexual advances, the offer of a promotion in exchange for sexual favors and physical touching.
California law protects employees from retaliation for filing complaints about work-related sexual harassment. Employers have a responsibility to immediately investigate any reported incidents and stop the misconduct.
Sometimes an employer’s unlawful employment policy harms a large group of employees.
When this happens, banding together as a class can protect employees, as their combined claims give better negotiating leverage than any one person alone. Some cases may involve hundreds, even thousands, of workers who have suffered the same workplace violations.
McCormack Law Firm is experienced in skillfully handling class actions that involve issues of misclassification of independent contractors, unpaid overtime, missed meal and rest breaks, off-the-clock work, and many other employment law issues. Class-action lawsuits can often be complex. Our resourceful employment law attorneys know how to recover compensation for our clients and force employers to end their illegal labor practices.
DISABILITY & MEDICAL LEAVE DISCRIMINATION
If you have been wrongfully terminated for having a disability or taking medical leave, you should reach out to us.
California law requires employers with at least five employees to seek an “accommodation” that will help disabled employees keep working. Where an accommodation is possible, the employer may not fire the employee because of the disability.
The Family and Medical Leave Act allows employees 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected medical leave per year. Even if you need more than twelve weeks your employer may be required to give you that leave as an accommodation.
McCormack Law Firm has extensive experience defending employees who have been fired for a disability or taking medical leave. We will fight to help you receive justice and compensation.
Discriminating against a worker based on a protected trait such as their race or sex is illegal.
California and federal laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace based on protected characteristics including disability, sex, race, national origin, age and others. Employees who are discriminated against by their coworkers, supervisors or bosses may have a strong legal case if the discrimination is serious, happens often, and the employer does not take action to stop it.
