Long Beach Discrimination Lawyer

Although workers in Long Beach, California, have some of the most stringent employee protections in place, discrimination unfortunately still occurs. The Long Beach discrimination attorneys with Aegis Law have experience with all manner of workplace discrimination and believe you should be treated fairly and equitably by your employer. If you are being discriminated against at work, contact us as soon as possible.

Long Beach Discrimination Issues

There are a variety of reasons that you might be discriminated against in the workplace. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) offer protection against discrimination. Contact Aegis Law if you face the following unlawful behaviors at work:

  • Age, gender, color, race, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, or religious discrimination
  • Denial of appropriate accommodations for religious practice at work
  • Refusal to work with disabled employees in ways that accommodate them and make doing their job possible. This is equally applicable to temporarily and permanently disabled employees.
  • Inquiring about an employee’s genetics or medical information

Action Steps to Take in a Long Beach Discrimination Case

When discrimination takes place, it can be overwhelming. Knowing your next steps is important. The appropriate actions to take are listed below:

  • Speak to a Long Beach discrimination attorney with Aegis Law about what happened to you.
  • Contact the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) about filing a formal complaint. Once that is done, the EEOC will reach out to your employer and share the details of the complaint with them.
  • Review your case with your attorney to determine what sort of settlement package would be fair, considering the damages you sustained.
  • Allow your attorney to field any offers from your employer. They will present the offer to you and advise you of whether it is a fair offer or not.
  • A mediator might be suggested.
  • If a claim is not reached within 60 days of filing the complaint with the EEOC, you can pursue a lawsuit for the discrimination you faced.
