Gender Discrimination & Sexual Harassment

Orange County Employment Lawyer Protecting Male and Female Employees From Gender Discrimination

California and federal laws take a clear stance against gender discrimination in the workplace. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 bans sex discrimination by employers with at least 15 employees. California law goes one step further and includes businesses with five or more employees in their anti-discrimination codes or just one employee in the case of harassment. These laws seek to promote equal pay, promotions, job opportunities, and working conditions for men and women who have equal productivity rates, seniority, education, and qualifications. Unfortunately, gender discrimination is alive and well in small cities like Brea, La Habra, and Fullerton and larger cities like Los Angeles and Pasadena. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that women continue to make 25% less than men in similar positions. Yash Law Group is dedicated to advancing equality in the workplace and standing up for those who are being treated unfairly.

Employment and labor attorney fighting for gender equality in Brea and throughout Orange County

Anti-discrimination laws were designed to protect both men and women. There are many examples of gender disparity in the workplace. Common instances in which we protect clients include:

  • A woman not being promoted because her employer assumes she is on a “mommy track” and may begin a family
  • A man who is deemed to not fit a gender stereotype, and is treated differently
  • A woman who is not hired because she is applying for a “man’s job”
  • A female who is treated unfairly in the workplace because she is breast feeding her infant
  • A man or woman treated unfairly in the workplace because they have family obligations and responsibilities

If you feel your career or employment is suffering due to gender discrimination, you do have options. Employment law attorney Jesse Singh will listen to your side of the story during your initial consultation and ask you detailed questions about your workplace treatment. He will discuss with you your ultimate goals and desired outcome of a potential lawsuit and will determine the appropriate actions to be taken. Our firm has helped clients make direct complaints to their company’s human resources representative in order to find a positive resolution, as well as dealt directly with the company’s attorney. If no direct resolution can be worked out, our firm can help you file a formal complaint with the appropriate state or federal agency. We are also ready to file a lawsuit against your employer, if necessary. In fact, we have successfully litigated cases against large law firms and even larger companies on behalf of aggrieved employees. Our firm provides personal attention and will stand by your side every step of the way until a resolution that respects your rights is found. Contact our Orange County office today.

Los Angeles, California lawyer fighting sexual harassment in the workplace

There may be no more uncomfortable situation than being sexually harassed at work, day in and day out. Employees who are harassed are often made to feel that they are being “too sensitive” or are doing something wrong by complaining about unwanted attention. The State of California protects against two types of sexual harassment. Quid pro quo harassment occurs when an employee’s position or some job benefit is dependent on submitting to unwelcome sexual conduct or requests. Hostile work environment, the other type of sexual harassment, occurs when supervisors, co-workers, or customers create an intolerable, abusive working environment. Both situations are illegal and your employer is responsible for making such abuse stop. If you are the subject of sexual harassment do not allow yourself to suffer in silence.
