Discrimination in the workplace can impede an employee’s ability to work on a day-to-day basis and may cause severe emotional distress. Discrimination occurs when an employer or co-worker utters discriminatory statements to an employee and/or makes employment decisions based upon a discriminatory motive, such as race, disability, gender, sex, age, and/or religion. Ultimately, severe and pervasive employment discrimination can lead to an employee’s wrongful termination or an employee feeling so helpless that he or she has no choice but to resign.
However, the Law Office of Jual F. Reyes is among the few law firms in Southern California that has been regularly assisting clients with employment discrimination cases in an effort to stop discrimination in its tracks and avoid unnecessary job loss and needless emotional distress. In fact, our firm specializes in handling all aspects of employment discrimination cases, included cases based upon race, disability, gender, sex, age, and/or religious discrimination.
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protects employees from suffering adverse actions in the workplace based upon an employer’s discriminatory motive. For example, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee 40 years of age or older simply because of his or her age. If an individual is 40 years of age or older and suffers employment discrimination at workplace with respect to any term, condition, or privilege of employment, including hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments, and training, that employee is protected under FEHA and is afforded legal relief. The FEHA applies to both employees and job applicants.
