Have You Been the Victim of Illegal Discrimination or Other Workplace Misconduct?
There is generally a substantial power imbalance when going up against an employer (or ex-employer) in court. Employers tend to be corporations or other business entities with substantial resources to defend themselves. Meanwhile, workers are not only often on their own, they still depend on the employer to provide them with a livelihood. Employers often count on this imbalance to protect them against valid claims of illegal conduct. This is where working with a skilled attorney can prove invaluable if you are an employee looking to take action.
At The Garza Firm, we handle a wide range of employment-related legal actions, including:
- wrongful termination and constructive discharge;
- sexual harassment, abuse, and assault;
- gender and sexual orientation discrimination;
- race and national origin discrimination
- age discrimination;
- pregnancy discrimination;
- religious discrimination;
- hostile work environment; and
- other EEOC claims.
California provides some of the strongest legal protections in the country against workplace discrimination and harassment. But there are still several legal hurdles a worker must clear when pursuing such cases. You typically need to first file a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The agency may take direct action against the employer on your behalf, or they may issue you a “right to sue” letter authorizing you to file your own lawsuit.
In a successful employment litigation action, you can recover legal damages, which can include reinstatement to your previous job, back pay, out-of-pocket costs related to your lawsuit, and even non-economic damages for the suffering you endured as a result of the employer’s illegal actions.
