Advocating On Behalf Of Employees’ Rights
While California is an “at-will” employment state, and employers are generally free to terminate an employee with or without cause, just as employees are free to quit without notice, employers are restricted by the United States Constitution and the California Constitution, as well as the laws of our state, from engaging in discriminatory employment practices. The laws prohibit discrimination by an employer based on gender, race, color, sexual preference, religion, national origin, age and disability.
If you are fired, denied a promotion, harassed or otherwise discriminated against due to one of these protected classes, Scolinos, Sheldon & Nevell can stand up for your rights. We have over 100 years of combined experience to establish a strong case and protect your interest either in or out of court. Visit our case results page to learn more.
Accommodation For Disabilities
Under federal and California state law, an employer must reasonably accommodate an employee (or job applicant) for a known disability as long as it would not cause the business undue hardship. The nature of the accommodation changes from employee to employee and is based on their specific disability. Ultimately, an accommodation should allow for equal employment opportunities.
Your Employer Cannot Retaliate Against You
If you file a discrimination claim, harassment claim, workers’ compensation claim or whistleblower complaint, your employer cannot retaliate against you for doing so. If you are passed over for a deserved promotion, demoted, stripped of responsibility or otherwise punished, our team can take legal action.
