Our Brea law office focuses its practice primarily on litigation of employment and labor cases, such as pregnancy and gender discrimination lawsuits. According to recent reports, as a whole, women in the workplace receive 82 cents to every $1 earned by their male counterparts across all races (Census Bureau Data, 2018). Though deemed an illegal practice for over 70 years, discrimination on the basis of gender and sex in the workplace remains a prevalent issue—particularly for women of color. Fear of retaliation at work and fear of termination or demotion play a major role in the trend of continuing discrimination, such as lack of equal pay. Yash Law Group has represented women brave enough to stand up against discrimination and retaliation and assisted them recover compensation for their employers’ misconduct.
