Discrimination

Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Having a team of attorneys at your disposal is essential when you are being singled out and treated differently because of your national origin or religious beliefs, or have been terminated for calling attention to an illegal work practice. If you work in Los Angeles or Orange County and are facing discrimination or retaliation, contact the law office of Toni J. Jaramilla.

Discrimination

Quite often we may not wish to acknowledge that discrimination has taken place in our work environment - employment discrimination is something we imagine happens at other places, not where we work. But when you witness one group getting preferential treatment over another, when you and other women in your office are repeatedly passed over on promotions, when your company fails to accommodate you during a pregnancy or illness, what might have seemed arbitrary now seems patterned, directed. Our attorneys routinely and successfully handle cases related to:

  • Age Discrimination Equal Rights
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Discrimination based on a Medical Condition
  • Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Rights
  • National Origin Discrimination
  • Race Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Gender Discrimination (Including Gender Identity)
  • Marital Status

Wrongful Termination

California is an "at-will" employment state. This means an employer is not obligated to inform an employee of the reason why they were fired. However, if you feel that your employment was terminated in a discriminatory act, you have rights. At Toni Jaramilla, APLC, our job is to protect them.

Retaliation

Simply put, if you are fired or demoted immediately following some action - whistle blowing or complaining about an instance of harassment or unpaid overtime - chances are you have been the victim of retaliation. We understand the frustration of reporting a case of unethical or discriminatory business practices to an HR department and having the investigation turn against you. We have the resources and experience you need when you are feeling powerless to retain your rights as an employee.
