Although California is an “at-will” state, California and Federal Law prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on a number of protected characteristics including disability, age, race, gender, religion, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, and sexual orientation.
An Employee who has been the target of discrimination or wrongful termination has legal rights. It is important to act quickly as the time to pursue a claim against your employer is limited. There are prelitigation requirements that must be satisfied before one is allowed to file a lawsuit in court.
Michael Justice has handled all types of employment discrimination cases and with his expertise and more than 28 years of experience, he can guide victims of discrimination through the complex process of litigating employment discrimination and wrongful termination cases. No matter your classification or title, Michael feels that every employee needs an attorney who will level the playing field.
Victims of employment discrimination are entitled to compensation for their lost income (both past and future), pain and suffering, costs, and attorney’s fees. Often, employment discrimination cases require the use of expert witnesses such as Human Resource experts, economists, or business valuation experts, just to name a few. Michael always goes the extra mile to make sure his clients are compensated for their harms and losses.
If you feel like you have been wrongfully terminated or have been the victim of discrimination, please call the Law Office of Michael Justice to make an appointment.
