Types of Cases We Handle
Though it may be hard to believe, some employers still discriminate against their employees for reasons that have been clearly illegal for many years. These reasons include pregnancy, race, religion, sex, and many more. The laws that California has in place are generally considered the strongest in the US and are broader than the Federal laws. So, if you feel like you may have been discriminated against, you should contact a Downey employment lawyer.
Unfortunately, sometimes employers would rather fire “troublesome” complainers rather than comply with the law. When an employee has engaged in a protected activity or made a protected complaint, they may not be fired for that complaint. To do so is a wrongful termination. Learn more about it here.
This is another area of employment law that is a headscratcher. It is the most common type of harassment, everyone knows it is wrong, but some people still do it. Women suffer from sexual harassment far more than men, but men may still be victims. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, you should contact a lawyer.
