Discrimination Hurts Everyone: Our Attorneys Can Help
With the amazing diversity Los Angeles communities enjoy, it is our sincere pleasure and our professional duty to safeguard the equality of all of our citizens with accomplished and dedicated representation in employment law.
When it comes to age, religious, pregnancy, racial and sexual orientation or gender identity discrimination, we understand the hurt and trials involved in enduring such cruel behavior in the workplace. Our lawyers are committed to upholding your integrity while enforcing the law to its fullest extent when someone is violating your rights to work without discrimination.
If you are over the age of forty, and have been wrongfully terminated, demoted or passed over for a promotion because of your age, your rights have been violated as a result of your employer’s decisions. Employers often overlook older employees for important positions as a way of pushing them out of the company, to avoid paying benefits or pensions they are due in the upcoming years. This practice is not only unfair, it is illegal. Contact a lawyer from our firm today if you feel your age has played a role in workplace discrimination, and we will hold the offending party responsible for their illegal actions today.
LGBT Rights Discrimination
When our friends in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community are subjected to workplace discrimination simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity it is not only illegal — it is upsetting. Although our attorneys operate in a community of equal rights and respect for others no matter their personal position, we understand that not everyone shares our ideology.
However, in the state of California it is illegal to treat an individual unfavorably because of their sexual orientation or gender identity in any workplace situation. That includes private, public and government agencies. If you or someone you know have been discriminated against because of your LBGT lifestyle, contact our offices today so we can provide you with the representation you deserve to hold your employers responsible for their terrible and illegal judgment.
Having a baby is an exciting time in anyone’s life. Adding a child to the world is an amazing responsibility, but also one that can be met with anxiety in the workplace. If you have been passed over for a promotion or employment as the result of your pregnancy, it is important that you understand your rights. Our attorneys are seasoned in the area of pregnancy discrimination, as — unfortunately — the act of discriminating against a woman because she is pregnant or planning to become pregnant is far too common. The lawyers at David Yeremian & Associates, Inc. believe that new mothers should be comfortable in their workplace at all times, and given proper maternity leave without any stress to return to their job for fear of being demoted or let go in the meantime. If your pregnancy has been met with discriminatory acts in the workplace, please do not feel ashamed by your employer’s shortcomings. Instead, allow us to hold them responsible for their illegal decision to treat you differently than another who holds your same position.
With the amazing diversity that city life in Los Angeles brings, it is comforting to see different races thriving in our communities, and sharing their cultural backgrounds with future generations. However, we understand that not everyone shares out excitement and open minds, especially when it comes to racial discrimination in the workplace. It is important for everyone, of any race, in our Los Angeles community to know that it is illegal to discriminate against anyone because of the color of their skin or the physical features that result from their ethnicity.
Likewise, it is also illegal to discriminate against someone because of their religious affiliation. Whether you belong to a well-known religious group such as Christian or Judaism, Islam or Buddhism, or a much smaller sect that isn’t widely known, it is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you for your beliefs.
If you feel that your race or religion has developed a discriminatory tone to be projected in your direction in the workplace, please contact an attorney, today, at David Yeremian & Associates, Inc. to discuss the hurtful emotions you are enduring as a result. We want to help you hold the offenders responsible for their insensitive and illegal approach to insulting your ethnicity or religious practices.
Has someone within your company made unwanted sexual advances in your direction? Have you been subjected to unsavory approaches or conversations of a sexual nature that make you uncomfortable? Has someone threatened your position or financial livelihood without sexual cooperation? If so, you have not only been put in a despicable position, you have also been subjected to illegal activity that can be prosecuted in the court of law. Allow our attorneys to help you work through this awful situation today, while helping your recover financially as a result.
The Los Angeles lawyers at David Yeremian & Associates, Inc. know how hard it is to be let go from a company you have worked so hard to support through your faithful employment. Whether you have worked for a company for 18 years or 18 days before being released it is important that your dismissal has not violated any laws along the way. Were you let go for reporting a violation in the workplace? Were you let go without due process as outlined in your employee handbook? Have you been fired out of sheer discrimination because of your race, religion or sexual orientation? If so, allow us to represent you and deliver the retribution you deserve after such a humiliating and hurtful experience.
Denial of FMLA
The Family Medical and Leave Act was established to allow employees the proper reprieve from work for personal or family illnesses, maternity leave or military exigency. If you have been denied FMLA benefits by your employer, we can help you enforce the law to insure you receive the time off work that you need to take care of yourself or your family.
Labor Law & Wage and Hour Law
Los Angeles has a very strict labor law that requires employers to operate a safe environment for their employees to work within. What’s more, this law requires that employees work for a fair and legal wage, at a capacity that is fair to their integrity.
If you feel that you are being overworked, underpaid, or treated unfairly in a hazardous workplace, let us know so we can stop the tortuous conditions in their tracks while holding the offending party responsible.
