Orange County Sex Discrimination lawyer

Southern California Employment Discrimination Lawyer

Employers know the rules. However, it is often surprising how many supervisors and department managers think they can get away with sex discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. No matter what your sex, pregnancy status or sexual orientation, you are protected by federal and state laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment.

Trust Your Instincts - If It Feels Like Discrimination, It Probably Is

Your supervisor's boorish behavior is not necessarily sex discrimination or harassment. If you think that workplace decisions are based on your sex, pregnancy or sexual orientation though, you may have a valid claim against your company. Talk to an experienced employment litigation attorney to discuss your situation and your legal options.
