Workplace Discrimination Lawyer

Helping Victims of Workplace Discrimination in the Bay Area

By law, both state and federal, you are protected in the workplace against discrimination based on age, race, sex, and religion, to name a few. It is against the law to make any employment, promotion, or compensation decisions based on these personally identifying factors. Nevertheless, despite these regulations, employers continue to do exactly that.

These practices are unlawful and you have the right to take legal action and seek justice against an employer who engages in discriminatory treatment. It may seem intimidating to stand up to your employer and you may also fear the prospect of retaliation, but seeking legal representation can help protect your rights.

The attorneys at Habbas & Associates have over 175 years of combined experience in several areas of practice. We have also partnered with the Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer law firm, who handle discrimination cases as well.

Discrimination is not something you should silently endure at work. We will fight for you.

What Qualifies As Discrimination in the Workplace?

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) protects you from illegal discrimination and harassment based on the following factors, whether they are actual or perceived:

  • Ancestry
  • Age
  • Color
  • Disability
  • Medical condition
  • Military or veteran status
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Genetic information
  • Gender, gender identity, or gender expression
  • Marital status

The DFEH also protects job applicants against employers, employment agencies, or labor unions that fail to meet equal employment standards. Additionally, you are, by law, protected against retaliation should you oppose, report, or assist in opposing unlawful discrimination. Fighting for your rights is not only important for you, but for those you work with who may also face discrimination, but may be afraid to act.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against, we can help. At Habbas & Associates, we will help you through this stressful time and protect you from any retaliation tactics your employer may use against you. You deserve justice.
