Empowering California Employees
The job you rely on to earn a living should not be the source of undue stress, abuse or legal challenges. Unfortunately, too many employees in Southern California find themselves on the wrong side of discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace. If that describes your situation, it’s crucial to make sure you understand your rights and how to assert them.
At Makarem & Associates, our proven Los Angeles employment law attorneys tackle a wide variety of issues on behalf of employees, including those who have faced discrimination as a result of pregnancy or suffered harm due to an employer’s failure to reasonably accommodate a disability.
“At Will” Does Not Allow Employers To Discriminate At Will
Even if you are an “at-will” employee, you are protected under California’s employment laws. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on his or her protected class or protected activity. Protected classes under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act include:
- Physical disability
- Mental disability
- Sexual orientation
