Employment Discrimination Lawyer

California Employment Discrimination Attorney

Employees are supposed to be protected from discrimination by several federal, state and local laws, but there are many situations where these laws are violated. Examples of common forms of discrimination in the workplace include:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Ageism
  • Bigotry

Unfortunately, a majority of discrimination issues go unreported which can lead to a toxic work environment. If you have experienced discrimination in your workplace, it is important to contact an employment discrimination lawyer to know what your rights are and ask any questions. Call us today if you have any questions. Free Case Evaluation.

Have You Experienced Discrimination at Work?

Lawyers For The People represents clients who have been discriminated against in the workplace.

California Fair Employment and Housing Act

California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protects people working for companies of more than 5 employees from discrimination in a variety of business areas including advertisements, applications & interviews, hiring, promotion, termination, and compensation. The FEHA prohibits harassment based on a protected category against an employee, an applicant, an unpaid intern or volunteer, or a contractor. Protected traits include age, ancestry, nationality, race, disability, gender & gender identity, marital status, military or veteran status, religion, and sexual orientation. You have rights and we defend them.

Examples of Discrimination

Common examples of workplace discrimination due to affiliation with FEHA’s protected categories include:

  1. Termination or firing of an employee.
  2. Failure to hire
  3. Decrease in pay or benefits
  4. Denying a promotion

Proving a claim of discrimination can be challenging without direct evidence like emails, texts, and other correspondence; however, it is not impossible. The best thing to do would be to ask a lawyer what your options are. Consultations are free, and the advice could prove to be invaluable to not only yourself but your coworkers who may also be in a bad situation. Lawyers For the People has represented several victims of workplace discrimination, and we would be happy to walk you through the process.
