Employment Discrimination

California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act makes clear that it is illegal for an employer of five or more employees to discriminate against protected groups in any aspect of business, from application to termination. Workplace discrimination takes many forms but is almost always rooted in unfair treatment of specific workers. Examples of unfair treatment can include being refused a job or job promotion, derogatory comments by supervisors or coworkers, being paid less than a similarly qualified coworker, and job termination. If a worker is being treated unfairly due to his or her inclusion in a protected class, that worker will can seek damages through a workplace discrimination legal claim.

Our Simple Process

: File Preparation

Require employers to provide all employee-related personnel and payroll records

: Investigation Stage

After receiving all employment records from the employer, the attorney will review all relevant documents pertaining to the employee to determine whether the employer has been in violation of labour laws.

: Issue Claim

If the employer does violate labor laws, we will prepare and send the claims to the employer or their attorney

: Settlement and Proceedings

You may receive a settlement offer during your claims process, which you can accept or reject. If both parties cannot reconcile, the employee may pursue their claims through the Department of Labor or through legal proceedings.
