Workplace Discrimination

Other factors that are out of your control such as age or race should not be used against you. If you feel you have been unlawfully discriminated against and you were either terminated, not hired or promoted because of this in any part of California, contact a Los Angeles and California employment law firm or attorney today.

In California, including Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and San Diego, it is illegal to discriminate against any employee due to any of the following:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Race
  • Ethnic Background
  • Disability

To discriminate against older individuals and not hire them or terminate them simply because they are older than a certain age is illegal in California. The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) is a federal law which covers California as well as all the states in America. This law prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities when it comes to job opportunities. In California, the state law is known as the Fair Employment and Housing Act – also known as FEHA – which covers a number of different things, not just disability. Both California state law and federal law protects individuals from being discriminated against based on their race as well. If you feel you have been discriminated against for any of these things in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, San Diego or other California cities, contact our Beverly Hills employment attorneys and lawyers.

In California, FEHA also protects pregnant women from being discriminated against when it comes to hiring and firing at a place of employment, along with federal Title VII laws. California state law also protects employees from being discriminated against when it comes to their sexual orientation. Additionally, according to the Equal Pay Act, it is illegal to not hire or fire someone based on gender, or pay them less than what you would pay someone else of the opposite sex who possesses the exact same skills, experience, and education.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.
★★★★★
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.

I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
