Trustworthy Employment Law Attorneys Aggressively Fighting for Your Rights

Los Angeles Discrimination Attorneys

Have You Been Discriminated Against By an Employer?

Under the California Fair Employment & Housing Act, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age or sexual orientation. It is also unlawful to discriminate against an employee because of her pregnancy. Despite these provisions, employers sometimes use subversive means to enact discriminatory policies while appearing innocent.

Discrimination in the workplace creates a hostile work environment for everyone. Though it can seem intimidating to take action against these employers, bringing their actions to light now can prevent them from doing the same thing to other employees later on. The experienced Los Angeles discrimination lawyers at the Law Offices of Scott R. Ames can investigate your claim and uncover evidence that exposes discriminatory practices in your workplace.

Call (310) 935-0225 today to tell us more about possible discrimination in your workplace.

Proving Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination claims may be proven by direct or circumstantial evidence. It will be up to you and your attorney to show that:

  • (a) The discriminated employee is a member of the protected class
  • (b) the discriminated employee was subjected to an adverse employment action (i.e., a termination, demotion, denied a promotion), and
  • (c) the employee's protected status (i.e. race, religion, sex...) was a motivating reason for the adverse employment action.

Federal law has similar prohibitions against discrimination, although its coverage is, for the most part, less comprehensive than California law.

Proving workplace discrimination is not always easy. Employers facing these accusations will often argue that a person’s ethnic or religious status had nothing to do with their treatment. This is why working with an experienced discrimination attorney is critical. We know what details need to be investigated and exposed in court in order to prove discrimination took place.
