Holding Employers Responsible For Discrimination In The Workplace

Discrimination in the workplace has been a longstanding problem. While state and federal rules have been designed to protect certain employees, there are employers who will still face discrimination on the basis of age, race, sex, gender, sexual orientation or religion, as well as against workers or applicants who are pregnant.

At The Law Offices of Laura J. Farris, we have been helping the members of protected classes with their discrimination claims since 1997. Our team of attorneys only represents employees, because we believe that you deserve to have a strong advocate working for you. With over two decades of legal experience in discrimination cases, our founding lawyer, Laura J. Farris, is going to work tirelessly to help you obtain results.

Examples Of Discrimination In The Workplace

No one wants to work in a hostile environment. You should not be dreading going into work each day. If your employer or supervisor treats you unfavorably and you are a member of a protected class, you need to make sure that you protect your rights. Some of the common types of discrimination include:

  • Older workers seeing their hours or wages cut
  • Gay or lesbian workers refused a promotion
  • Employers refusing to hire workers from other countries due to bias or prejudice
  • Workers with disabilities being denied accommodations

Not every adverse action by an employer will rise to the level necessary to support a discrimination claim. If a more qualified applicant was selected for a position or promotion, you may not be able to show that you were being discriminated against. It is essential that you speak to an experienced lawyer to understand if you have a case.

We will review your situation and help you learn more about the laws in California and at the federal level that may apply to your case. We will educate you on the options available in your case, and provide counsel based on realistic expectations. Being committed to client service is making sure we are working in your best interest — not ours.
