Frequently Asked Questions
I am working on a public works project and being paid in cash "under the table." My boss says if I want to be paid the legal rate I have to give back part of my wages. What can I do?
That sounds like your employer may be violating the Labor Code by failing to pay the required wage. By consulting a lawyer, you can get a better idea of what to do at this point. There may be important time limitations to bringing a claim for your back wages. If your complaint goes unanswered, you and your attorney may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer for this wrongdoing.
I was injured in a serious accident caused by a dangerous condition. Will the insurance company pay for my medical bills?
Usually in the case of a serious accident caused by another, the insurance company will handle payment for damages. It is essential to work with a lawyer as soon as possible in order to prove that you did not cause the accident, and to seek maximum compensation from the insurance company. A lawyer at Donahoo & Associates can help you file a claim, negotiate with the insurance company and even take a lawsuit to civil court if necessary, so you do not have to pay for damages.
How do I know if my claim qualifies as a class action lawsuit?
Class action lawsuits are claims that involve a large number of plaintiffs who were all injured or suffered a loss at the hands of a single organization or company. An example is an employer who misclassifies its workers to avoid payment of overtime. Those employees may be able to file a class action lawsuit to seek compensation for their injuries.
We recommend that you consult an attorney at our firm to see if you should file a claim or a lawsuit. Either way, an attorney at Donahoo & Associates can help.
My boss said he won't give me a raise unless I go on a date with him. Is this sexual harassment? What can I do?
That sounds like a classic case of sexual harassment. By consulting a lawyer, you can get a better idea of what to do at this point. Most importantly, don't keep quiet about the incident. Make sure you file a complaint at work. If your complaint goes unanswered, you and your attorney may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer for this wrongdoing.
Can I be fired if I complain about discrimination at work?
Legally, your employer cannot fire you for filing a complaint or threatening to file a complaint about a situation such as discrimination. If your employer does fire you, you may be able to work with an attorney to file a wrongful termination suit. We recommend that you consult an Orange County employment attorney at Donahoo & Associates to see what we can do to help.
How much will it cost to work with your firm?
Many of the cases the Orange County civil attorneys at Donahoo & Associates take are on a contingency basis, meaning the client pays nothing unless we collect a settlement or win a judgment on their behalf. Contact an Orange County civil litigation lawyer at our firm to see if we can work on a contingency basis for your case.
