Gender Discrimination Lawyers Taking Action For Employees Across Southern California
Having a job should depend upon whether or not you can do the job, not on your gender. While great strides have been in gender equity in the workplace, the fact remains that the “glass ceiling” remains a very real obstacle for many working women. Workplace discrimination on the basis of gender is illegal, and employers must be held accountable for these acts when they occur. A skilled lawyer will be instrumental in protecting your rights.
At SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation, we are strong advocates for victims of all types of discrimination in the workplace, including discrimination on the basis of gender. Our employment lawyers have been a mainstay of the San Bernardino legal community for more than 30 years. In fact, Sanford A. Kassel and Gavin P. Kassel are a part of a trusted family legal heritage that spans more than 50 years in the area, and are totally devoted to upholding our clients’ rights.
What The Fair Employment Law Prohibits
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits employers, employment agencies or unions to harass or discriminate against employees on the basis of gender, gender identity and gender expression.
Some of the specific acts of discrimination this law prohibits include:
Not Allowing An Individual To Self-Identify As One Sex Or The Other
Refusing To Accommodate An Individual’s Gender Expression
In addition to gender discrimination, State and Federal laws bar pregnancy discrimination in the workplace. Specifically, employers must make reasonable accommodations for pregnant women. In addition, sexual harassment claims fall under sex discrimination laws as well.
In any of these and other situations, our attorneys will explain your rights under the law. If you have a viable claim, we will gather all evidence in support of your claim and seek all appropriate damages under the law.
