Employment Lawyer Taking Cases in Claremont
Attorney Branigan Robertson has experience handling a wide variety of employment claims and lawsuits. Mr. Robertson brings a unique perspective to his current practice, the representation of unpaid and harassed clients.

Most law firms that represent employees work on a contingency fee. A contingency fee is where the fee is payable to the law firm only if there is a favorable result. In the law, it is defined as a “fee charged for a lawyer’s services only if the lawsuit is successful or is favorably settled out of court….” Contingency fees are usually calculated as a percentage of the client’s net recovery.
Meal & Rest Breaks
According to California law employers are required to provide their employees with one uninterrupted 30 minute lunch break if they work in excess of five hours in a day. If they work more than 10 hours in one day they are entitled to a second meal period of at least 30 minutes. During this break an employee cannot be performing any duties of work and must be permitted to leave the premises, otherwise the meal period time counts at time worked.
An employee is also owed two 10 minute uninterrupted rest breaks. The employer must pay you for these breaks.
