Legal Information

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us on our contact page today for more information on your rights and a review of your potential case

The law is on your side and protects you from discrimination, based on the following categories:

  • Race and national origin
  • Sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy

The law also protects you from retaliation for complaining about unlawful acts or for exercising your rights, and also entitles you to a workplace free of harassment based on sex or any other protected category.

We can help you determine if your employer unlawfully targeted you or has failed to protect you from harassment.

What Does Discrimination Look Like?

Discrimination can take many forms, including any of the following actions based on a protected category:

  • Failing to hire or promote
  • Paying lower wages/benefits
  • Unfavorable work assignments
  • Discipline or demotion
  • Termination or layoff
  • Failing to accommodate a disability

What Does Retaliation Look Like?

Retaliation can also take many forms. Anytime an employer subjects an employee to an adverse action, like termination or discipline, as punishment for the employee raising concerns about the employer’s unlawful activity (whistleblowing) or if the employee exercises her legal rights.

Some examples include:

  • Fired after complaining about discrimination
  • Demoted after asking for overtime pay
  • Laid off while on maternity leave
  • Disciplined after raising concerns about workplace safety
  • No promotion after asking for a medical leave of absence
  • No bonus after complaining about harassment

What Does Harassment Look Like?

Sexual harassment is anytime a supervisor, or another employee, creates a hostile work environment. This includes unwanted sexual advances or other conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment is also anytime a supervisor conditions any type of work benefit, like a promotion, on the performance of sexual acts.

Some examples include:

  • Sexually-based comments about an individual’s body
  • Sexually derogatory comments about women in general
  • Leering, making sexual gestures or displaying pornography in the workplace
  • Touching or blocking movement
  • Retaliatory action after the rejection of sexual advances

Other forms of unlawful harassment include harassment based on any protected characteristic, like race-based harassment or disability-based harassment.

It can be difficult to determine if your employment rights have been violated. An experienced employment law attorney can help you make this determination on an initial phone call. California has some of the strongest employment protections in the country. Shukla Law can help you navigate California’s legal protections to determine whether you have a case. Shukla Law will evaluate your case and explain your rights in a free consultation.
