More protections mean more questions about California employment law


Employment laws vary from state to state, but few states have laws as protective of workers as California, with policies that protect employee work breaks, privacy and safety, and prevent discrimination and harassment.


But having a protective set of laws doesn’t mean there aren’t going to be problems. Whether you're an employee or an employer, there may come a time where the nuances of employment law in California will really matter to you.


If you have a question about employment law in California, the legal Experts on JustAnswer can get you the information that you need to move forward. This can save you the time and expense of scheduling a meeting with a lawyer.


You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you're completely satisfied.

What Customers are Saying:

Mr. Kaplun clearly had an exceptional understanding of the issue and was able to explain it concisely. I would recommend JustAnswer to anyone. Great service that lives up to its promises!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Ask the legal Experts anything about California employment law


On JustAnswer, employment law questions answered by the legal Experts include:


  • Can a court-ordered handwritten mediation settlement agreement be rescinded?
  • Can a California employer retroactively change a performance standard?
  • If my wife’s company is merging with another company, and reducing hours and accrued vacation time, are they required by CA employment law to let her use the hours before she loses them?
  • I am purchasing a company in California, and I want to know what expenses need to be reimbursed to employees in the course of work?
  • If a per-diem nurse wants to work stretches of full time hours and does NOT want to change to full-time status or have benefits, does CA employment law require anything on the behalf of the employer?

There are certain kinds of information that will help the legal Expert give you the most accurate answers. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • What is the nature of the dispute?
  • Has anything been filed or reported?
  • Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
  • Are any legal documents related to the dispute at the ready?

With this kind of information ready, you'll be able to have the most valuable and constructive session with the Expert.
