As An Employee, The Law Protects You Against Discrimination

Understand Your Legal Options
At Collier Law Firm, you can expect open, honest communication. When examining the specifics of your employment discrimination case, we will carefully explain your legal options. We approach each case with compassion, yet we aggressively represent our clients.
California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) makes it illegal for employers of five or more employees to discriminate against job applicants and employees of a protected class, such as race, religious creed, color, national origin, disability, medical conditions, sex, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status. It also prohibits retaliation against employees who have asserted their rights under the law.
The FEHA also prohibits harassment based on a protected category. Harassment is prohibited in all workplaces, even those with fewer than five employees.
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) requires employers of 5 or more employees to provide an eligible employee with job-protected leave to care for a child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, grandparent, grandchild, or sibling with a serious health condition, and for the employee’s own serious health condition.
Sometimes employment discrimination is very obvious. In other situations, it is subtle. Whether you did not receive a promotion due to your age or you are being paid less than a counterpart, we are here to protect your rights.
