Discrimination & Retaliation

San Jose Workplace Discrimination Lawyer

Helping Victims of Workplace Discrimination in the Bay Area

Have you experienced discrimination from your employer? Were inappropriately fired, reprimanded, or otherwise adversely treated? If so, you may have a case against your current or former company. All businesses must comply with certain state and federal employment standards and, when they do not, they can be held liable for damages incurred by an employee.

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.

If you believe you have a case against your current or former employer, our dedicated teamat Habbas & Associates is ready to speak with you. Our diligent, award-winning San Jose workplace discrimination lawyers are well-versed in the laws that govern these cases and have recovered millions of dollars in discrimination and retaliation matters.

The attorneys at Habbas & Associates have over 200 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. Call our San Jose workplace discrimination attorneys at (888) 387-4053 or fill out a contact form to get started.

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.
