Civil Rights Attorneys

Employment: California has some of the strongest civil rights laws in the nation.  The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is the main law prohibiting employment discrimination which prohibits employment discrimination based on race or color; religion; national origin or ancestry, physical disability; mental disability or medical condition; marital status; sex or sexual orientation; age, with respect to persons over the age of 40; and pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The FEHA also prohibits sexual harassment and retaliation against anyone for opposing discrimination, sexual harassment or for filing a complaint, testifying, or assisting in proceedings under the FEHA. You have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination.  If your rights were violated, you have a right by law to compensation for medical bills, hospital charges, ambulance bills, missed work and other costs incurred.  These are types of “economic damages” recoverable in California.  You also are entitled to compensation for physical pain, mental suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, physical impairment, inconvenience, grief, anxiety, humiliation and emotional distress.  These are types of “general damages” recoverable in California. We will help you navigate the maze of medical professionals, insurance companies, and courts to enforce your rights to be made whole.
