A Long Beach Employment Attorney That Handles All Workplace Disputes
In today’s workplace environment, claims of discrimination are usually taken seriously thanks to heightened awareness of the law. However, that does not mean that millions of workers do not suffer from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The Long Beach employment attorney at Miracle Mile Law Group is trained to identify subtle and explicit behavior that could entitle you to compensation for your damages. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are state and federal laws, respectively, that prohibit discrimination, retaliation, and harassment.
Employers are prohibited from discriminating against people with certain “protected characteristics.” Protected characteristics include race, age, sex, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, disability, pregnancy, and sexual orientation.
How do you prove discrimination? You can prove discrimination either by direct or circumstantial evidence. Direct evidence includes comments or actions that show you were treated less favorably because of your characteristic. Circumstantial evidence includes actions that your employer subtly takes which can show you were treated differently.
