Employment Discrimination Litigation
The laws in California and in most other jurisdictions prohibits discrimination in employment by certain employers in terminating, demoting, refusing to hire, disciplining, denying employment opportunities or benefits to an employee on the basis of the employee’s race, religion, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation. The law also prohibits employers from retaliating against an employee because of the employee’s participation in any protected activity. Protected activities includes but are not limited to protesting or asserting the employee’s rights, the employee’s participation in all union activities, the employee’s participation in any employer or governmental investigations, the employee’s reporting of a crime to the employer or to any law enforcement agencies, employee’s filing of a worker’s compensation claim, the employee’s filing of grievance(s) against his/ her supervisor or employer, the employee taking sick time off, filing or taking FMLA leave, SDI or participating in an Employee Assistance Programs.
