Practical Resolutions For Workplace Harassment And Discrimination Disputes

Under California and federal law, employees are protected against harassment and discrimination at work.

When these laws are violated, whether a worker has suffered a co-worker's harassment on the job or is being discriminated against by a supervisor, an experienced lawyer at The Ozzello Practice PC can work to protect those rights.

The firm skillfully handles claims for employee plaintiffs, and in defense of employers, when discrimination is alleged on the basis of:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Race
  • Disability (including pregnancy)
  • National origin
  • Sexual orientation
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues
  • Retaliation

In some instances, harassment may also be considered a form of discrimination, as is the case with sexual harassment (unwanted advances, derogatory jokes, job promotions exchanged for sexual favors, and others). Discrimination may also be a factor in wage-hour disputes, intimidation of employees and wrongful termination.

If you question whether a workplace procedure is considered illegal or have questions about a potential class action lawsuit against your employer, speak with a workplace harassment attorney at The Ozzello Practice PC in Los Angeles.
