Do I have a discrimination claim?
Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine whether illegal discrimination has occurred in the workplace. Generally speaking, California employers may fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all. However, employers are prohibited from taking adverse action against an employee because of their race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, and other protected characteristics. Discrimination may also occur when an employee is denied opportunities for promotion, is demoted, or is otherwise treated differently than a person in the same or similar position. We can help determine whether you have a strong claim for discrimination.
Does sexual harassment only occur between supervisors and employees?
The type of sexual harassment usually depicted in movies and television shows often involves a person in a position of authority harassing a subordinate. Of course, this occurs in real life as well. However, it is also possible for sexual harassment to occur between co-workers. Instances of sexual harassment should not be ignored and should be brought to the attention of your employer as soon as possible.
I was terminated for exposing illegal activity by my employer. Do I have a claim?
Yes. Whistleblower laws grant protections to employees who report illegal or unethical behavior carried out by their employers. We can help you seek damages if you were wrongfully terminated from your job.
