In California, employees have extensive protections in the workplace. They have the right not to be discriminated against in any way. This includes discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or pregnancy status. Unfortunately, many employees face discrimination on a daily basis. This discrimination can occur in all aspects of employment, including hiring practices, job placement decisions, promotion decisions, and termination decisions. At The Rager Law Firm, our Los Angeles employment law attorneys have a vast experience protecting workers who have sustained discrimination in the workplace.
At The Rager Law Firm, we also proudly stand up for workers who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. Whether sexual harassment is non-verbal, verbal, or physical, those who experience this type of behavior deserve to be compensated.
The Rager Law Firm will stand up for any worker who does not receive their fair hourly pay, salary, overtime pay, or commissions. We will also investigate any allegations that an employer is paying their workers differently based on gender.
Finally, we work to ensure that no worker is retaliated against for reporting illegal or fraudulent activities of their employer, including reports of unequal pay, discrimination, or harassment.
Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and all other medical professionals perform incredibly important jobs in our society. While we depend on these workers to provide quality health care, medical professionals also face many of the same workplace issues that other people do on the job. All too often, healthcare professionals face workplace discrimination, sexual harassment on the job, retaliation, and wrongful termination. At The Rager Law Firm, our Los Angeles healthcare law attorneys have extensive experience standing up for the rights of medical professionals who have been the victims of unethical or illegal practices in their hospitals, healthcare companies, or medical facilities.
While California may be considered an “at-will” work state, there are various reasons why a termination may be against federal or state law. In many cases, wrongful termination may be due to discrimination or retaliation against an employee. Just like an employee cannot be treated differently on the job due to their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or pregnancy status, they should also not face termination due to these reasons. No employee should be terminated due to raising concerns about discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace. At The Rager Law Firm, our Los Angeles wrongful termination attorneys will work diligently to ensure your rights are upheld.
