DISCRIMINATION

The law protects employees from discrimination based upon membership in certain legally recognized “protected classes”. California Government Code §12490 states:

It is an unlawful employment practice, unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification, or, except where based upon applicable security regulations established by the United States or the State of California for an employer, because of the race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status of any person, to refuse to hire or employ the person or to refuse to select the person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or to discharge the person from employment or from a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment.

Since our founding, we have represented employees in a wide range of employment related claims, including discrimination. If you have questions about your hiring, pending termination or actual termination, please take advantage of our FREE online case submission .

  • Did your employer terminate your employment because of a discriminatory reason?
  • Did your employer demote you because of a discriminatory reason?
  • Did your employer deny you a promotion because of a discriminatory reason?
  • Did your employer subject you to any other adverse employment action because of a discriminatory reason?

If you are a California resident we can represent you in your claims regardless of where the company is headquartered in the United States. Similarly, if you are located outside of California and the company is located inside California, we can represent you in your claims . Many times clients and potential clients mistakenly believe that they have no valid claims because they have been told that California is an “at will” employment state.
