Sacramento Discrimination Attorney

The Right to Be Free from Discrimination in California

Despite advancements in nearly every part and sector of our culture, discrimination against others who may be different from us in some fashion still exists. It is not a victimless crime or trivial matter: where discrimination exists against a person or a group of people, other social ills such as low morale and esteem, increased violence and aggression, and other negative consequences also exist. Discrimination can also prevent a person from growing and developing as an individual and growing into his or her full potential.

Our Sacramento employment lawyer has worked with hundreds of Northern California clients who were treated unfairly by employers. Contact the Law Offices of Gay Carroll-Haring today to discuss your rights, remedies, and next steps.

Types of Prohibited Discrimination

Prohibited discrimination occurs any time one person treats another person differently and worse than any other person simply because of a protected characteristic of the person.

Federal and state laws, most notably the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, the ADA, and the Federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act, prohibit employers from discriminating against an employee or potential employee on the basis of that person’s:

  • Age: An employer cannot discriminate against older employees or potential employees (i.e., those over 40 years of age);
  • Disability: An employer cannot discriminate against a person who has a covered physical or mental disability;
  • Sex: An employer cannot discriminate against you based on your gender or any gender-related characteristic;
  • National origin: Where your family originates from has no bearing on your ability to perform a job, and an employer cannot discriminate against you on this basis;
  • Pregnancy: Closely related to sex discrimination, an employer cannot discriminate against a female employee based on whether or not she is pregnant or has plans to become pregnant, or is using pregnancy leave;
  • Race: An employer cannot discriminate against an employee or potential employee on the basis of race;
  • Religion: An employer cannot treat you differently from other employees on the basis of any religion you adhere to (or fail to adhere to);
  • Sexual orientation: Regardless of whether you are heterosexual, homosexual, or other, your employer is prohibited from discriminating against you based on your sexual orientation.

Do I Need a California Discrimination Attorney’s Help?

If you have been the victim of workplace discrimination, you may have the right to seek damages or other legal relief through a discrimination lawsuit. Despite how clear the discrimination may appear to you, however, you will likely need legal assistance to bring a successful lawsuit. Evidence and testimony establishing unlawful discrimination will need to be located, preserved, and presented.

At the Law Offices of Gay Carroll-Haring, I fight vigorously on behalf of workers who have suffered unjust and unlawful discrimination in the workplace. After considering and analyzing the facts of your situation, I will help you understand the rights and any remedies you may have under the law. I will fight on your behalf and will help you obtain the compensation allowed by law.
