Workplace Discrimination: There are many types of discrimination such as racial, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability and now military status. If you feel that you may have been discriminated against by an employer, an employment agent, a labor union or collective bargaining group, you may have a claim. If you feel that you have been discriminated against because you spoke out against an illegal practice or participated in an equal employment opportunity matter, you may file a case of discrimination with the EEOC. A California discrimination lawyer at our firm can help explain the laws and may help you to file a claim. More Here
Wrongful Termination: Many California employees believe they have been wrongfully terminated, when in most cases this is not the case. Unless an employee was terminated in violation of an employment agreement or among other things, due to discrimination, or whistle blowing, it is likely there is no wrongful termination. However, to be sure, it is wise to consult with a California wrongful termination attorney at our firm to see if you may have a claim against a current or prior employer. More Here
