We may be living in the 21st century, but discrimination is still an unfortunate reality. At CounselOne, we are concerned about protecting your rights.
Discrimination can fall under various categories, including
- Sexual orientation
- National origin
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act protects Californians from discrimination in the workplace. If you feel you have been discriminated against, contact the attorneys at CounselOne for a free consultation during which we will discuss your legal options.
Sometimes a pregnancy can leave you unable to perform your regular duties at work. Often, businesses don’t like to deal with the complications arising from an employee having to take time off due to her pregnancy. If you have been discriminated against by your employer because of your pregnancy, you may be entitled to damages, including for lost wages and emotional distress. Contact CounselOne today for a free consultation. We will discuss your legal rights and options going forward.
If you suffer from a permanent or temporary disability, this may leave you vulnerable to discriminatory practices in the workplace. If your employer is not accommodating of your disability, or if you are terminated as a result of your disability, you may be entitled to damages, including for lost wages and emotional distress. If you are the victim of disability discrimination, contact CounselOne today to schedule a free consultation.
Sex and Gender Discrimination
In California, it is illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of one’s sex or gender identity. If you feel your rights have been violated in the workplace, contact the sex and gender discrimination attorneys at CounselOne for a free consultation. You may be entitled to damages, including for lost wages and emotional distress.
Leaves of Absence
If you are terminated for taking a leave of absence, you may have a claim against your employer. California law provides for an employee who works for a company with 50 employees in a 75-mile radius to take a leave of absence. If your employer has taken negative action against you for taking a legal leave of absence, contact the attorneys at CounselOne today for a free consultation.Click Here to See CounselOne's Current Investigations
