Agoura Hills Employment Lawyer

Were You Wrongfully Terminated?

Discrimination in the workplace is prohibited under both California law and federal law. If you have suffered discrimination or wrongful termination on the basis of your age, race, gender, nationality or any other cause besides your ability to do your job, speak to a Los Angeles employment law attorney at Effres & Associates to discuss the legal options.

We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.

Workplace Discrimination Laws

Employment discrimination laws in California are contained in the Fair Employment and Housing Act. There are also federal laws that apply to prevent discrimination against employees.

Overall, you may have grounds to file a claim against an employer if you are experiencing any kind of discrimination based on the following factors:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Physical appearance
  • Genetic information
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy

Employers are expressly prohibited from discriminating against employees based on the above factors. If an employer can reasonably accommodate an employee’s disability or pregnancy, the employer has a duty to do so.

Types of Discrimination

Employers may engage in a number of practices that can constitute discrimination:

  • Failure to recruit a person because of race, gender, age or national origin.
  • Failure to provide adequate skills or training to a person.
  • Failure to promote a person or provide opportunities for advancement.
  • Failure to respond when employees complain of harassment or discrimination.

Not only is such discrimination illegal, but wrongfully terminating a person who has made complaints of harassment or discrimination is also illegal. If you believe that you have been subjected to harassment or discrimination in your workplace, discuss the possibility of filing a claim with a Los Angeles employment lawyer at our firm.
