Los Angeles Discrimination Attorneys

Employees have the right to be treated fairly in the workplace and there are specific laws put in place that protect those most likely to face discrimination. When hiring, firing, or job promotions are based on factors such as an employee’s race, nationality, and gender or are influenced by disabilities the employee has, Valiant Law provides the legal representation needed to hold these employers accountable. Our Los Angeles discrimination attorneys act as champions for employee rights. Our legal team has decades worth of practical knowledge and experience to help defend and protect your interests on the job.

Discrimination In the Workplace

Despite state and federal laws meant to discourage and prevent discrimination in the workplace, employees continue to find themselves in these types of situations. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), discriminatory actions are prohibited in every area of employment, including the following:

  • Job advertisements and recruitment efforts;
  • Application processes and hiring;
  • Handling background checks and job referrals;
  • Terms and conditions of employment;
  • Decisions concerning job assignments and promotions;
  • Employee pay and benefit programs offered;
  • Accommodating worker disabilities and religious practices;
  • Disciplinary actions and causes of employee firings and discharges;
  • Providing post employment references.

If you suspect discrimination in any of the above situations, our Los Angeles discrimination attorneys at Valiant Law are here to help. Employers who engage in discriminatory practices can be subject to civil lawsuits, requiring them to pay compensation for lost wages, benefits, and other losses the employee suffered.

Protection Under State and Federal Laws

In Los Angeles, discrimination is prohibited under both federal and state rules and regulations. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) enforces anti-discrimination laws in our area. These laws prevent discrimination against employees and workers based on the following:

  • Race, or the color of an employees skin;
  • Ancestry or nation of origin;
  • Religious faith or creed;
  • Mental or physical disabilities;
  • Age, if an employee is 40 or over;
  • Sex and gender, which includes discrimination against pregnant or breastfeeding women;
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity or expression;
  • Medical conditions;
  • Marital status;
  • Military or veteran status.
