Discrimination Cases We Handle
It is illegal to treat employees differently or unfairly because of their physical and/or mental disability, race, gender, disability, religion, age, or national origin. This can include everything from encouraging a hostile work environment to wrongfully terminating an employee. We have successfully obtained just compensation for employees discriminated against because of a protected category.
Our legal professionals understand that many hardworking employees are often taken advantage of by employers who intentionally make them feel like they can’t uphold their labor rights because they might lose their job. But with the guidance and practical advice of our qualified attorneys on your side, you can feel confident asserting your rights and taking legal action to hold your employer accountable for their misdeeds.
Under California law, employers have a duty to engage in a good faith interactive process with employees with mental and/or physical disabilities. Employers also have a duty to provide reasonable accommodations to their employees. When an employee informs their employer about a need for accommodation, such as a work restriction, the employer has a duty to engage in a good faith interactive process and provide reasonable accommodation to the employee.
We help employees when they face employers who fail to engage in the interactive process and fail to provide a reasonable accommodation to them.
Under California law, gender discrimination is complicated because it is subtle. Women, however, know that they are being discriminated against when they are passed over for promotions, growth opportunities, otherwise perks of the job.Sexual harassment is also considered a form of gender discrimination.
We have successfully litigated against large corporations and public entities, and we can help you understand gender discrimination and provide you with the insight you need to better navigate the workplace.
We successfully advise and litigate on behalf of employees discriminated against on the basis of their race. Racial discrimination is prevalent within large corporations and public entities. Racial discrimination exists when an employer treats an employee less favorably because of the employee’s race. California law and federal law outlaws such conduct.
Pregnancy discrimination exists when an employer treats a pregnant employee less favorably upon learning about the employee’s pregnancy. California law provides various forms of accommodations and leaves to pregnant employees.
We have successfully helped employees when their employers refused to provide them with accommodation or refused to return them back to their prior positions.
When an employee has a sincerely held religious belief, and said religious belief conflicts with a job requirement, and the employer does not explore available reasonable alternatives of accommodating the employee, the employee can make a claim against the employer to enforce the California law that provides for said accommodation.
Sexual Orientation Discrimination
Under California law, employers are not allowed to treat employees differently because of their sexual orientation. We have helped employees who were mistreated because of their sexual orientation.
