Workplace Discrimination Attorneys Serving Los Angeles And All Of California
Many people like to believe that discrimination is a thing of the past, or that it rarely happens. Unfortunately, those who face discrimination know that it occurs every day, in all types of workplaces.
At Levine & Blit LLP, we know that employment discrimination is not just unacceptable — it’s a violation of California and federal laws put in place to protect employees. Our attorneys draw on decades of experience to help workers hold businesses and corporations accountable for discrimination in the workplace — and show employers that it doesn’t pay to discriminate.
We help workers who have been hurt by discrimination on the basis of:
Federal law protects workers against discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age over 40, disability and, depending on the court, sometimes sexual orientation. California extends those protections to include sexual orientation, transgender status, sexual identity, marital status, breastfeeding, political affiliation, HIV status, requests for disability accommodations and others.
What Does Employment Discrimination Look Like?
In order to prove that your employer showed discrimination, you must have suffered an adverse employment action on the basis of one of the protected classes listed above. Examples of adverse employment action include:
- Wrongful termination
- An unfavorable reassignment or demotion
- Constructive discharge, which occurs when working conditions are so intolerable that you are effectively forced to resign
- Workplace harassment
- Reduction of hours
- Being passed up for training, leadership or advancement opportunities
- Other actions that materially affect the terms and conditions of your employment
