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:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Physical disability
  • Mental disability
  • Sex
  • Age
  • Sexual orientation

Assert Your Rights And Protect Your Livelihood

We know how important your livelihood is to you. If you feel you were discriminated against or terminated due to your membership in a protected class or because you came forward about harassment or discrimination in the workplace, it may be in your interest to pursue legal action against your employer. Contact us today to schedule a free and confidential consultation. Your deadline to file a complaint may be fast approaching, so protect your rights today.
