Los Angeles Discrimination Lawyer
Hennig Ruiz & Singh, PC Are Here to Protect Workers
Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace is all too common. Companies and employers should be held accountable for their actions. At Hennig Ruiz & Singh, PC, our Los Angeles discrimination attorneys protect the legal rights of workers throughout California.
Federal and state laws protecting employment rights in California include:
- California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Americans with Disability Act (ADA)
- Equal Pay Act
If you feel like you have been discriminated against, you are probably correct. Workplace discrimination is particularly insidious, as there are many subtle forms of discrimination. That doesn't mean you are not experiencing discrimination.
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 in the Workplace
California's discrimination laws were written to provide better protection for employees than federal law. Discrimination can be as bold as firing someone for speaking Spanish. It can also be 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.

- Race, ethnicity or national origin
