If you’re facing discrimination or harassment at work, it can be a very isolating experience. It may even feel like your world is crumbling. You do not have to face these challenging issues alone.

With more than twenty-five years of experience, our skilled San Francisco employment attorney is here to help you navigate these complex situations.

Understanding Your Rights

Employment laws in California are designed to protect workers from a variety of unfair practices, including wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability, and more. Determining if and when an employer’s actions are unlawful can be difficult, but a knowledgeable San Francisco employment lawyer can help.

Wrongful Termination: Although California is an at-will employment state, employers cannot terminate an employee for reasons that violate local, state, or federal laws. This includes firing an employee for requesting reasonable accommodations for a disability, complaining about sexual harassment, or whistleblowing on illegal activities within the company.

Sexual Harassment: Whether it’s quid pro quo harassment or creating a hostile work environment, sexual harassment is a serious violation of your rights as an employee. Offensive jokes, inappropriate touching, or displaying offensive pictures are just some examples of behaviors that can give rise to a hostile work environment.

Discrimination: Despite numerous laws meant to protect workers, many individuals still face illegal discrimination in the workplace or during the hiring process. Discrimination can slow or even halt an individual’s career progress, potentially costing them tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Unpaid Wages:  Everyone is entitled to be paid the full amount they are owed for their labor. California has some of the strongest (and most complicated) wage and hour laws in the country. Whether your employer has misclassified you as an exempt employee or independent contractor, failed to pay you overtime, or refused to pay salary, bonuses, or commissions, you deserve to be paid for your work.
