Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms and, increasingly, may be harder to name at first. Generally, discrimination involves negative treatment in your job from discipline to suspension to wrongful termination.
Our company has extensive experience in fighting for these rights, either through private and confidential negotiations, or through litigation and trial. We have successfully fought technology companies and government entities, both large and small. And while we never back down from a fight, we also regularly help our clients achieve their goals through less vocal means with increased collaboration where appropriate. We also have experience guiding employees through work matters such as taking pregnancy or medical breaks, requesting reasonable accommodations, or negotiating employment and severance agreements.
Discrimination at work can also include English-Only policies or discrimination based on accent, denial of promotions, and unequal pay. California law also has a growing protections for pregnant employees—both in the form of accommodations on the job, maternity and medical leave, nursing protections and lactation accommodations.
