Get the Legal Advice You Need to Protect Your Business
In the kaleidoscope of cultures present in today’s workplace, the chance of running into a discrimination claim is always present. It is therefore important to get the legal advice you need to design your workplace policies in ways that comply with the law — and to be prepared to make a vigorous defense against discrimination claims if and when they occur.
Our firm can help you do both of those things. We have the ability to advise you strategically about how to set up and document your policies. And if an issue does occur, we can defend you aggressively in litigation.
What Are Some of the Most Common Discrimination Claims?
Some of the most common types of employment discrimination claims are:
- Age discrimination — Legal protections against age discrimination begin at age 40 under state and federal law. We can guide you toward the application of policies that comply with these protections — and defend you against claims that you violated the protections.
- Disability discrimination — Legal disputes often arise over whether an employer made a reasonable effort to accommodate a disability. Our attorneys can inform you about what is required and protect your rights in litigation if that becomes necessary.
- Racial discrimination — In California’s highly diverse workforce, racial issues can be especially complex. We can help your business respond appropriately.
- Sexual discrimination — Issues such as pregnancy discrimination or sexual harassment have to be confronted, so that you create and enforce the type of company culture that will allow your business to thrive. Our lawyers can advise you on how to create and sustain such a culture.
