Understanding Discrimination

Many employment law cases involve discrimination and sexual harassment. The facts in these cases can be difficult to prove and the issues are complex.

California law provides protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of gender, age, race, religion, national origin or disability.

Workers who have been unlawfully discriminated against may be able to recover back pay or other damages, but first they have a heavy burden of proof. To prove that the discrimination was unlawful, the worker would have to provide evidence that the employer made the decision based on gender, age, race or one of the other protected factors. It takes a skilled lawyer to gather that evidence and present it persuasively.

Sexual Harassment

In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about harassment and abuse in the workplace, but the legal aspects of sexual harassment remain widely misunderstood.

Sexual harassment comes in two main forms, sexually hostile work environment and quid pro quo. Workers should be free from a sexually hostile workplace or from having to put up with sexual demands from co-workers or employers. Furthermore, they should not fear retaliation after reporting harassment.

To effectively make a claim of sexual harassment, you need a trained and knowledgeable lawyer.
