Do You Have a Claim?

Employees in California are covered under the same federal anti-discrimination laws that protect workers nationwide. These include the Americans with Disabilities Act, Family and the Medical Leave Act, and the Civil Rights Act. In addition, employees are provided protection under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.

If an employee is fired because s/he attempted to assert his or her rights to be free from harassment or discrimination, or because s/he complained about unsafe working conditions, s/he must bring a claim to the FEHA prior to proceeding with a wrongful termination lawsuit. To learn if you have a claim, it is advised that you should speak with an experienced California employment law attorney.
