HomeBlogWhat Are Your Options In Riverside For Workplace Discrimination
On behalf of Rager Law Firm posted on July 28, 2018
People deserve to feel safe at work. Not just from physical harm, but from emotional and psychological harm as well. We spend a good bit of our time at our jobs. We do it so we can provide a stable home for ourselves and our families, but if we are being discriminated against at work, we are often left with a horrible choice:
Do I leave my job or stay and continue to be discriminated against?
When people think of workplace discrimination, they usually think of two types – racial and gender discrimination. Those are not the only types. Federal and state law prohibits the following types of discrimination in the workplace:
Race or color
Religion or creed
Sex Marital status
You will find that federal and state protections cover a wide range of types of discrimination. In the past and now, people who fall into these groups have faced problems in the workplace. Many times, people who fall into one of those groups face a hard time even getting hired, and when they do they face difficult situations like being forced to work in unsafe conditions or for lower pay. They are often not promoted or eventually terminated because of one of the reasons listed above.
In this state, the California Family Rights Act extends the rights of women who give birth even further, including extended leave for a complicated pregnancy.
What Are Your Options
We know that you’ve probably exhausted all other options before considering coming to an attorney, whether out of hopes the discrimination would stop or that you would just be able to ignore it.
First and foremost, if you still work for the company that is discriminating against you, we will work to stop it. After that, a lawsuit can work to give you the following: back pay, reinstatement (if you’ve been terminated), promotion if it is due, legal and court costs, punitive damages, and emotional distress damages.
We will also work with the company to ensure that they implement training new policies and procedures that will prevent future discrimination within the organization.
