Discrimination

Standing Up for Employees Who Suffer Unlawful Workplace Discrimination

California law has some of the strictest protections for employees against workplace discrimination. Employers may not base any employment decisions on an employee’s:

  • Age
  • National Origin
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Religion

If an employer refuses to hire or promote you, terminates you, or otherwise treats you unfairly because of a protected characteristic such as those above, it constitutes unlawful discrimination, and the law provides you with important rights to hold your employer accountable.

Proving unlawful discrimination is never a simple matter, however, as employers will fight against such allegations and provide false non-discriminatory justifications for their employment actions. You need a lawyer who knows how to prove the discrimination you suffered and the recourse you deserve.

Age Discrimination

Representing Clients Who Experienced Unlawful Discrimination Based on Age

Both California and federal laws protect employees over the age of 40 from workplace discrimination based on their age. Many companies might want to phase out older employers to hire younger individuals for many reasons, especially because they might accept lesser pay. However, employees over 40 have the right to maintain gainful employment, and they should not live in fear of being replaced based solely on their age.

The Eghbali Firm represents clients who are not hired, not promoted, or terminated based on their age. We believe in your rights, and we will stand up for you.

Disability Discrimination

Fighting for Employees Who Suffer Workplace Discrimination Based on Disabilities

The law makes it clear that employers may not engage in discrimination against applicants or employees based on an actual or perceived mental or physical disability. There are many forms of disability discrimination, including:

  • Asking about disabilities in interviews
  • Refusal to hire
  • Denial of deserved promotions or pay raises
  • Refusal to provide reasonable accommodations when requested
  • Termination

The Eghbali Firm believes in your right to work, and you should not be prevented from doing so due to a disability that does not affect your job performance. Contact us for free to discuss your rights today.

Gender Discrimination

Fighting for the Rights of Employees Against Unlawful Gender Discrimination

It is unlawful in California for employers to discriminate against you based on your gender. This includes your assigned gender at birth, your gender identity, your gender expression, and more. Employers may not deny people jobs, equal pay, promotions, or other opportunities because of any aspect of their gender or gender nonconformity.

If you believe you experienced gender discrimination in any form, consult with The Eghbali FIrm as soon as possible. We represent employees in this type of case, and we are here to help you.

Sex Discrimination

Helping Employees after Unlawful Sex Discrimination at Work

No one should be denied any type of job opportunity because of their sex, and the law strictly prohibits sex discrimination in employment actions. There are many types of discrimination associated with sex, including:

  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Gender
  • Gender expression and identity

When an employer treats you unfairly because of any aspect of your sex, you have the right to take legal action to hold the company accountable. You want legal help you can trust, and you should never hesitate to consult with The Eghbali Firm at no cost about your rights.

National Origin Discrimination

Handling Cases Involving Workplace Discrimination Based on Your National Origin

  • Ethnicity
  • Accents
  • Being from a certain part of the world or country
  • Appearance of being from a certain part of the world or country

If you are denied a job or another opportunity because of your national origin, you have the right to seek legal relief from your employer. You should seek help from the dedicated team at The Eghbali Firm right away.

  • The intention to get pregnant or not get pregnant
  • Being of childbearing age
  • Being pregnant
  • Childbirth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Pregnancy or childbirth-related medical conditions

You have the right to make your own family planning and pregnancy-related decisions without the fear of losing job opportunities or employment.
