Los Angeles Discrimination Lawyer
Hennig Ruiz & Singh, PC Are Here to Protect Workers
Unfortunately, workplace discrimination and employment discrimination are all too common. Companies and employers should be held accountable for their actions. At Hennig Ruiz & Singh, PC, our discrimination attorneys in Los Angeles represent workers in all aspects of employment discrimination under California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). If you feel like you have been discriminated against, you are probably right. Workplace discrimination is particularly insidious, as there are many subtle forms of discrimination. This does not mean it isn't happening. You deserve to have someone on your side, protecting your rights and fighting back. Since 1995, our law firm has been working hard to protect workers across the Los Angeles and Southern California areas.
Forms of Discrimination & Harassment in the Workplace
California's anti-discrimination laws were generally written to provide better protection from discrimination and harassment than federal law. Discrimination can be as bold as firing someone for speaking Spanish or a subtle as refusing to promote an older worker who may be nearing retirement. Harassment can be described as insults and physical gestures that communicate hostility toward a person based on a protected characteristic. While we often think of harassment as being sexual in nature, it can take on many forms.
Hennig Ruiz & Singh, PC can handle any discrimination case, including discrimination based on:
- Race, ethnicity or national origin
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity
- Pregnancy or family leave
- Disability or medical conditions
- Religion or profession of no faith
- Retaliation against whistleblowers
We have also represented clients in all types of harassment cases, including those based on:
- Sexual harassment, including sexual comments, offensive gestures, physical contact
- Requests for sexual favors in exchange for employment or employment benefits
- Racial slurs, epithets, and stereotypes
- Negative remarks and insults based on protected characteristics
- Offensive comments made about people with disabilities
With so many iterations of workplace discrimination and harassment, you need an attorney who is well-versed in all aspects of employment law and California’s anti-discrimination laws.
What Recourse Do You Have if You’ve Been Discriminated Against?
If you believe your employer’s policies or actions are discriminatory, or if you believe that you have been the victim of harassment based upon a protected characteristic, you may be entitled to compensation based on state or federal laws. Employers may be found to violate state or federal laws if they engage in illegal, discriminatory activities based on age, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, or pregnancy. If you feel that your current employer is actively engaging in discrimination or harassment, document everything, and discuss your concerns with your human resources department. Then, contact our experienced discrimination attorneys in Los Angeles.
