An Experienced Lawyer For Employment Discrimination
If an employee refuses to promote or hire you because of your age, gender, sexuality, race or other protected class, you may have an employment discrimination case. The Law Offices of James E. McGlamery has successfully fought for the rights of clients for over 30 years. Our proven attorney will investigate your case and be by your side throughout the case.
Employment Discrimination Can Take Many Forms
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects workers from discrimination based on their race, sex or national origin. In California, the law protects the expression of sexuality and gender identity, so employers are not able to fire a person for being gay or transgender. Unfortunately, all forms of discrimination are common, and employers may not hire qualified workers because of discrimination.
Employment discrimination includes these actions based on the protected class status:
- Refusal to hire
- Denial of training
- State Personnel Board Matters and Hearings
- Employment Mediations
- Employment Arbitrations
- Filing of DFEH Complaints
- Employment Contract Negotiations
Age, Gender And Race Discrimination Is Still Prevalent
Our Sacramento law firm has won millions of dollars in compensation for employees affected by discrimination. We have the resources and knowledge to successfully represent clients facing many types of discrimination. Age discrimination can include managers holding back technical training or refusing to hire an older employee. Gender discrimination can include unequal discrimination based on sex or sexual harassment in the form of lewd comments or proposals. If an employer fires you, do not sign a severance agreement without first allowing our office to review it.
Employment discrimination is difficult to prove, and a skilled attorney can make the difference in your case. Our office has economists, psychologists and human resources specialists who can prove the damage caused by workplace harassment. We can represent state and county employees who have been illegally harassed in the workplace.
