Sudano Law Firm’s Walnut Creek employment lawyers represent clients in various different areas of employment discrimination including:
Race Discrimination- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination in employment on the basis of color, national origin, and race-based stereotypes.
Gender Discrimination- If you have been terminated, or if you were denied employment, a promotion, or equal pay as a result of your gender, the Sudano Law Firm can help you enforce your rights.
Age Discrimination- FEHA and federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibit employers from withholding employment opportunities from individuals forty years or older on the basis of their age.
Discrimination Based on Disability- If you have been disadvantaged in employment as a result of an actual or perceived disability or serious medical condition, our Walnut Creek employment discrimination lawyer will fight for your interests under FEHA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation- FEHA also prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender expression, and gender identity.
Religious Discrimination- Under both FEHA and Title VII, employers are prohibited from providing disparate treatment on the basis of religion, including atheism and non-traditional religious beliefs.
Federal laws and the laws of the State of California prohibit private and government employers from engaging in unlawful discrimination in connection with the hiring, promotion, compensation, and termination of employees.
Sudano Law Firm’s Walnut Creek employment discrimination lawyer represents victims of employment discrimination in both civil litigation and California Fair Employment and Housing Commission (FEHC) claims.
Discrimination can be shown by both direct and indirect evidence. Direct evidence is rare to come across as most employers that harbor animus towards various protected groups are unlikely to state such as the reason for terminating a person because of that reason.
