Fight Back Against Workplace Discrimination
Each company throughout the greater Los Angeles area has different standards and expectations for its workforce. It is illegal for employers to harass their employees. No one should suffer in a hostile work environment. We fight to protect our clients from such abuse.
The team of attorneys at Goldberg & Gage takes employment law violations extremely seriously. We stand up against employers who trample on employee rights.
California Laws Provide Increased Employee Protection
Harassment discrimination and retaliation are illegal. The law provides protection from discrimination, harassment or retaliation based on:
- Gender or sex
- Marital status
- National Origin
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity or expression
- Physical or mental disability
- Medical conditions (including AIDS/HIV)
- Political affiliation
- Military and veteran status
Additionally, your employer cannot make decisions related to your job because you experienced assault, stalking or domestic violence.
Did Your Employer Discriminate Against You, Harass You, or Retaliate Against You? If So, We Can Help.
Discriminatory treatment can take many forms. Some of the circumstances for which our lawyers can represent you include:
- Sexually-derived harassment
- A lack of reasonable accommodations for your disability
- Failure to promote you because you are pregnant
- Refusal to offer you a position due to your religious beliefs
The law also prohibits employers from retaliatory actions. For example, you may be entitled to compensation if your employer lets you go for reporting discrimination or harassment.
