California and federal law prohibits discrimination in employment. I represent employees in cases where they are discriminated against on the basis of their race, sex, age, physical disability, mental disability, national origin, religious creed, color, ancestry, medical condition, marital status, or sexual orientation.
Sexual harassment is illegal. Harassment because of sex includes sexual harassment, gender harassment, and harassment based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. I represent employees who are harassed because of their sex.
California and federal law prohibits harassment in the workplace. I represent employees in cases where they have suffered unlawful harassment on the basis of their race, sex, age, physical disability, mental disability, national origin, religious creed, color, ancestry, medical condition, marital status, or sexual orientation.
Employees have a civil right to complain about or report discrimination and harassment in the workplace to their employers or to appropriate government agencies such as the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. I represent employees who suffer retaliation from their employer for exercising their civil rights.
Family and Medical Leave / Retaliation
California and federal law permits some employees to take unpaid leave for their own medical needs or to care for certain family members. If you have taken a family or medical leave and suffered retaliation such as termination, contact our office to discuss your rights. I represent employees who suffer retaliation from their employer for asserting their rights to take family or medical leave.
Employment discrimination against women who are pregnant is sex discrimination under both California and federal law and includes discrimination because of or on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. In most situations, an employer must permit a female employee disabled by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions to take a leave for a reasonable period of time not to exceed four months and thereafter return to work. In some circumstances, an employer’s refusal to allow a female employee to return to work may constitute pregnancy discrimination. I represent employees in pregnancy discrimination cases.
