Despite numerous state and federal employment laws banning discrimination at work, many Californians have experienced it. Their employers have used some trait or characteristic to influence their decision-making. These traits can include a person's marital status, religion, sex, color, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability or pregnancy.
When a person has experienced workplace discrimination, the person may feel humiliated, angry or sadden. However, these emotions are only one part of what happens to those who are discriminated against at work. In addition to emotional suffering, people can experience financial harm as well. People may be unfairly terminated or passed by for a promotion. These discriminatory decisions can therefore have a long-term impact on a person's career.
Our firm understands the emotional and financial impact that workplace discrimination can have on victims and their families. We have been handling workplace discrimination cases in California for years. We know that California law protects people against this sort of treatment, and how to best resolve the situation.
In many cases, a pre-trial settlement is possible for victims of workplace discrimination. This settlement can provide them with compensation for their losses, including back pay, emotional damages, attorney's fees and more. Furthermore, with the right help, these individuals can be reinstated to their position, receive a promotion or be hired by a company.
However, getting these results can be hard if people do not know how to navigate the legal waters. Our firm has the expertise necessary to gather evidence of discrimination and use it to a person's advantage.
