The California Department of Labor is a state institution that helps protect the rights of the employees and penalizes employers for non-observance of employment and labor laws including violation of the right of employees to minimum wage, overtime pay, meal and rest breaks, tip pooling laws, vacation laws and more. It also oversees and make sure that violations of California labor laws dealing with harassment and discrimination do not go unpunished. Hence, if you are a victim of labor or employment law violations in California, you have a right to claim damages against your unjust employer by seeking redress of grievances with the California Department of Labor.
If your employer directly causes hostile working environment or fails to prevent harassment and discrimination in the workplace, your employer is guilty of violating California labor and employment laws. You should be guided by the fact that you are protected in California against any form of unjust treatment at work.
