Employees can allege that they have been discriminated against in numerous ways. State and Federal laws dictate certain protected areas regarding the discrimination of employees. The following on some common examples of discrimination in the workplace:
Claims of harassment are serious and employers should contact an experienced employment law attorney at the Law Office of Cyrus Mor at the outset of any potential harassment or discrimination claims made by employees. Harassment of employees can occur without the employer even being aware of such unlawful conduct.
The law dictates specific actions and behaviors which have been deemed unlawful by both State and Federal courts regarding sexual and non-sexual harassment of employees in the workplace. If an employee were to succeed in establishing a prima facie case for harassment, the loss to the employer could be an absolute disaster.
The Law Office of Cyrus Mor defends employers from lawsuits filed by former employees who allege that they were retaliated against by their employers. Under several California and Federal laws, it is unlawful for an employer to discharge or terminate an employee as retaliation for an employee’s actions.
Employees are protected in numerous respects and cannot be demoted, terminated, or punished for their actions as a means of retaliation. Employers in Orange County sometimes make the mistake of retaliating against their employees for testifying in legal proceedings, filing complaints against the employers, or complaining about improper or unlawful employer conduct. Employees often make such complaints about their employers and it is imperative for employers not act out in retaliation.
Employers must seek immediate protection in the event that an employee alleges that discrimination, retaliation, or harassment has occurred. Generally, it is common for employees to pursue various causes of action against their employers after being terminated. Each of these matters can have a serious outcome for employers and can cause significant financial damage if not addressed carefully and correctly.
