Discrimination

We Help California Workers End Discrimination On The Job

Discrimination in employment has been illegal for about 50 years, but it still takes place in many shapes and forms today. Our employment lawyers see this far too often in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Bakersfield and the surrounding areas. Discrimination might not be as obvious as it once was, but it still exists.

Maybe shortly after you announced your pregnancy, your boss started complaining about your performance and later fired you. Maybe you and other Latinos at your workplace are rarely, if ever, promoted. Maybe people at work taunt you about your gender expression. These are modern forms of workplace discrimination.

Legal Tip: Federal laws, including Title VII, protect workers from poor treatment based on race, age, gender, disability, religion and national origin. California has expanded these protections even more to cover pregnant women and gay, lesbian and transgender people.

If you think discrimination might be the reason you were refused a job, fired or treated poorly at work, call the work discrimination attorneys at Rothschild & Alwill, APC. We know it is intimidating to talk to a lawyer about your job, but you don't have to be afraid. Your employer doesn't have the right to fire you for calling an attorney on your own time.

Discriminated Against At Work? What Are Your Options?

Depending on the specifics of your situation, we will help you:

  1. Quickly put a stop to the discrimination
  2. Get your job back
  3. Recover lost wages as well as compensation for any harm you suffered

We like to save people time and money by resolving discrimination cases outside of court. This is often possible through mediation, negotiation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). However, we are experienced trial attorneys who are ready and willing to fight for you in court if necessary.
