A Compassionate Guide For Employment Discrimination And Harassment
Discrimination, harassment and retaliation have no place in the workplace, but many employers allow their staff to create a hostile work environment. There are a variety of laws that protect workers and allow them to take legal action against their employers. At Gigliotti & Gigliotti, we help employees file claims and pursue their fair compensation. We represent clients across California, including Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties from our Lake Forest office.
What Is Employment Discrimination?
State and federal laws protect the rights of employees and guarantee a workplace free from harassment regardless of a person’s age, sex, country of origin, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability. You may have an employment discrimination case if your employer allows adverse employment actions to continue because of your membership as part of one of these protected classes.
There are many actions that qualify as employment discrimination, including:
- Being passed over for promotions
- Getting demoted for no reason
- Harassing or threatening statements
- Physical and verbal sexual harassment
Because employment discrimination cases are difficult to prove and can require a long courtroom battle, you should call our law firm as soon as possible. Mr. Gigliotti will review your case details and guide you through the entire legal process.
