California Employment Lawyer
You may have to work for a paycheck, but you should not have to work for fair treatment. At Scott • Wagner and Associates, we fight for your rights in the workplace.
Unfortunately, not all employers and coworkers treat those around them with the courtesy and respect that they deserve.

Litigation and Consultation
We are prepared to take your discrimination or harassment employment dispute to court if necessary.Lindsey Wagner is an experienced attorney aggressively pursuing the rights of employees throughout the state of California and Florida. The first action you need to take in order to resolve your employment dispute is to schedule a consultation to understand your federal and California state workplace rights.
A consultation does not always mean that a case will go to court. For example, some consultations result in the initiation of settlement proceedings, while other clients may realize that they no longer need our services. Sometimes, all you need is to understand your rights under the law and answers to your questions about what you’re experiencing in the workplace is illegal. You may just need assistance in drafting a complaint to Human Resources or your employer. We can assist you with these questions and more during your consultation.
We Pride Ourselves in Only Representing Employees and Provide Zealous Advocacy for your Employment Disputes
In California, we only represent employees – and we do so throughout the entire state of California.. Being narrowly focused on employee rights means that we have developed a vast pool of experience and knowledge in this area. If you have any questions regarding your rights in the workplace, or believe your rights in the workplace may have been violated, contact us immediately.
We Strive to Educate
Employees are often unaware of certain laws regarding their rights in the workplace – and that is why we are here to help. For example, did you know that the California Fair Pay Act, SB 358 requires equal pay for employees of difference sexes when performing substantially similar work under similar working conditions? Or that under California’s recently enacted SB 1063 employers are prohibited from paying employees of one race or ethnicity less than similarly situated employees of a different race or ethnicity? What about the law that you cannot be required to work during your rest break and that if you work over five hours in a day, you are entitled to a meal break of at least 30 minutes?
One of our most valuable services is educate employees of their rights. Knowledge is power and it is never more true than when you have to stand up for yourself against a party that has been oppressing or taking advantage of you.
