Davtyan Law Firm (DLaw) – California’s leading employment law firm is furthering its mission to protect employee rights for residents in the Golden State by opening an office in Sacramento’s central business district in order to help workers with employment issues, such as workplace harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination.
The firm’s expansion to a fifth location is a key component of Founder and Managing Attorney Emil Davtyan’s mission to provide California’s low-wage workforce with accessible legal services.
DLaw also has offices in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Fresno to protect Californians from abusive employers.
Since its inception in 2015, DLaw’s 50-plus lawyers and staff have helped hundreds of thousands of low-wage California workers recover nearly $150 million from their employers. To date, the firm has helped pursue over 1,800 cases, a large percentage of which have led to successful class-action lawsuits.
“Now, more than ever, people are seeing increased layoffs and tensions at work that can lead to potential discrimination and wrongful termination,” said Emil Davtyan. “DLaw is passionate about helping employees learn more about their rights to prevent improper treatment in the workplace. It can feel very isolating to experience hardships at work, so DLaw’s empathetic team will ensure you don’t feel alone during the legal process.”
DLaw’s newest office is located in the heart of Sacramento’s central business district at 500 Capitol Mall in Suite 2350.
DLaw specializes in the following fields of employment law:
Wage & Hours Claims — California has strict laws regarding lunch breaks, rest breaks, overtime, expense reimbursements, off-the-clock work, minimum wage, etc. These laws change frequently and can be confusing.
Workplace Harassment & Discrimination — Employers are not allowed to discriminate or harass, based on certain protected classes such as race, age, and gender. In addition, California protects more classes including immigration status, sexual orientation, and others.
Wrongful Termination — There are several types of wrongful termination including discrimination, contract violations, sexual harassment, and workplace retaliation.
Protected Leave Violations — California employees are entitled to a variety of protected leaves including FMLA (family and medical leave), new parental leaves, military service leave, and more. California’s leave laws protect employees from unlawful discrimination, harassment, or retaliation as a result of requesting or taking protected leave. Employees have a right to take these kinds of leaves, and employers cannot take certain actions just because they exercised that right.
Workplace Retaliation — Workplace retaliation occurs when a business takes negative action against the employee who initially filed a complaint. If an employer punishes or fires an employee for exercising his or her employment rights, it is considered workplace retaliation and it may be illegal.
DLaw is a member of California Lawyers Association, California Employment Lawyers Association, National Employment Lawyers Association. The firm is a 4.5+ Star Consumer rated firm with A+ Accreditation by BBB with headquarters in Glendale, California. The firm is driven by the mission of “Champion for California’s Working Class.” To fulfill its mission, DLaw provides free, no-obligation consultation and case evaluation services.
