Our Orange County law group provides experienced legal services in employment and labor litigation, such as wage and hour disputes and discrimination claims arising in Downey, CA. An employee, whether “at will” or not, deserves protection from discrimination or other mistreatment by an employer. Although employers have the right to terminate an “at will” employee for no reason at all, an employer cannot terminate an “at will” employee for unlawful reasons. For example, employers are prohibited from treating employees differently or unfairly based on characteristics protected under the law, such as race, gender, age, and disability.
Discrimination attorney Yashdeep “Jesse” Singh has represented workers in the Downey region who have experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace based on gender, sex, and pregnancy and helped them seek compensation. Harassment and discrimination include the following forms of unfair treatment:
- An employee who was pregnant and then suffered a pregnancy-related disability was terminated immediately after extending her leave of absence from work
- The boss of an employee made lewd and insulting comments to the employee about her physical appearance and sent her inappropriate text messages well after work hours
- After delivering a newborn, an employee returned to work only to be given a lower job position, which was inferior in pay and responsibility to the position she held before she went on maternity leave, and was deprived of lactation accommodation
- The manager at a small business promised an employee job benefits if she agreed to date the manager
All of the foregoing misconduct violates the law, including the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), of which the Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) is a part. Decades after the laws prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace were enacted, employees continue to be mistreated on protected basis. Enforcing these laws is critical to advancing the workplace and achieving justice for workers.Contact Us For a Free Consultation Regarding Harassment or Discrimination Claims
