Ventura Employment Lawyers
If you live or work in the city of Ventura, and are dealing with on-the-job discrimination or sexual harassment, consider scheduling an evaluation with Lawrance Bohm. With an office in Woodland Hills, Mr. Bohm represents clients in Ventura and throughout the county.
With an estimated population of more than 106,000 residents, Ventura was made the county seat in 1873, when the region separated from Santa Barbara County. A mid-sized city, it goes without saying that many hardworking people live there. The city has a long history of industry and innovation, and has been the site of massive agricultural and oil development. Today, top employers include: the County of Ventura, Community Memorial Health System, Target and Ventura College. Outdoor clothing company Patagonia Inc. has its headquarters in Ventura.
While most employers do their best to follow state and federal laws protecting worker rights, sometimes companies fall short of their obligations. When this happens, not only is the worker’s earning ability hurt, but the employee’s health and family life can suffer as well. When a worker’s rights are violated by an employer, it is recommended they contact a good employment lawyer.

Should You Contact an Employment Lawyer?
If you live in Ventura, or somewhere nearby, and you believe you have been treated unfairly by an employer, it might make sense to talk to a lawyer. While some hesitate to contact an attorney due to cost concerns, it’s important to remember it could be well worth the time and effort of an initial evaluation to find out if you have a case or not. Often times, attorneys will take cases on a contingency basis, which means the client doesn’t pay legal fees out-of-pocket. Rather, the attorney is paid with a percentage of the settlement or judgment at the conclusion of the case.
