Stand up to illegal workplace discrimination in California

Here in California, we would like to believe that people succeed or not succeed based only on their own merits. Unfair and illegal discrimination should have no place. Unfortunately, this is far from the reality faced by many workers. As recent and not-so-recent headlines have shown, unfair discrimination happens all the time. One would think that large corporations should be immune from this because they can afford to monitor employee conduct. But as we recently discussed, there have been allegations that a high-profile California auto manufacturer has not been doing this.

According to news reports, the manufacturer has been grappling with allegations that staff members have been hurling verbal abuse at African-American employees. There have also been reports that African-American employees have been wrongfully denied promotions and have had to face racist graffiti in bathrooms and work areas. The chief executive officer apparently didn't help the company culture when he allegedly sent an email to workers encouraging them to be "thick-skinned" about tolerating discriminatory behavior on the job.

There are many reasons why an employee should not have to deal with this kind of unlawful abuse, whether it be racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic or whatever. Employees have the right to file a complaint. At Toni Jaramilla, APLC, we have dedicated our professional legal practice to helping employees stamp out this discrimination and recover appropriate compensation. We help employees who have experienced racial discrimination, gender discrimination, religious discrimination, age discrimination, marital status discrimination and more.

We are happy to meet with potential clients in a half-hour free consultation with a lawyer. We can be reached by telephone and email. For more information on the services we provide, please see the discrimination page on our website.
