Standing Up To Discrimination In The Workplace

Despite civil rights laws on the books for nearly half a century, employment discrimination in many forms still occurs every day in California.
  • Have you been treated unfairly by an employer because of your race, sex, age, disability, cancer or sexual orientation?
  • Were you passed up for a job or promotion because of discrimination?
  • Have you been subjected to slurs or a hostile work environment?
  • Has your employer retaliated after you complained about discrimination?

Fighting Workplace Discrimination In Its Many Shapes

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, California's Fair Employment and Housing Act, and other laws passed by Congress and our state Legislature, California workers are protected from discrimination on the basis of:

  • Race, color, ethnicity or national origin
  • Pregnancy or maternity leave
  • Religion or creed
  • Gender bias
  • Age bias (over 50)
  • Actual or perceived sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy or maternity leave
  • Family or medical leave
  • Cancer
  • Disability (including failure to accommodate)
  • Whistleblower status
  • Military service

Our accomplished trial lawyers, Shelley Bryant and Amanda Whitten, have successfully sued large corporations for discriminatory practices. Their ability to build a compelling case has resulted in many notable recoveries for lost earnings, emotional distress and other adverse effects of employment discrimination.

Holding Employers Accountable

Discrimination takes many forms. Perhaps you were refused employment on the basis of your protected class. Perhaps you were passed up for advancement, transferred or reassigned to a less desirable position, or treated differently in pay or disciplinary action. It is also discrimination if you are subjected to harassment or demeaning treatment by co-workers or supervisors.

Making a claim of discrimination is a scary step, especially if you do not want to lose your job. We help clients document and report the illegal conduct, and we are with you all the way if you go forward with a lawsuit against the company. We will deal forcefully with any retaliation and do everything we can to enforce your rights.
