San Diego Discrimination Lawyer

In San Diego, there are laws in place to protect the rights of employees who experience discrimination at work. If you experience workplace discrimination, speak to the San Diego discrimination attorneys with Aegis Law. We will ensure your rights are protected and that you receive fair treatment from your employer.

Employer Discrimination is Unlawful in San Diego

If your employer has allowed or participated in discrimination against you, contact Aegis Law to discuss how to proceed. We aim to hold your employer accountable for the discrimination you experienced. Listed below, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) outlines unacceptable behavior:

  • Discrimination based on gender, age, color, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation, or nationality is unlawful
  • It is unlawful to deny accommodations requested to participate in religious practices in the workplace
  • An employer must work around their employee’s disability, whether it is temporary or permanent
  • It is a discriminatory practice to question an employee about their genetics or medical data
  • Employees are protected from workplace retaliation

If any of the above sounds familiar, you may have been discriminated against at work. If this is the case, the experienced discrimination lawyers in San Diego at Aegis Law understand how to handle these issues and advocate on your behalf.

Residents of San Diego are protected by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). This act is an additional line of defense against harassment, discrimination, or retaliation that happens in the workplace. FEHA covers employees who work for a company that employs a minimum of five employees who work full or part-time.

Justice for workplace discrimination or harassment should be stopped in its tracks. Aegis Law will advocate on your behalf so that you are treated fairly and justly. We have been successful in this pursuit and invite you to take a look for yourself at our previous outcomes.

The attorneys at Aegis Law have joined the fight to end discrimination. We are ready to help you, from determining if you have a case to filing suit. We will support you in your pursuit of justice. The following actions should be followed when pursuing an action against your employer for discriminatory behavior:

  • Reach out to the EEOC and file a formal complaint. From there, the EEOC will get in touch with your employer and inform them of the specifics of the complaint.
  • Alert your San Diego discrimination employment attorney to determine the damages you are entitled to obtain. At Aegis Law, we can review the details of your case and help you determine the fair amount you should be awarded in damages.
  • Your employer may offer you a settlement. This is often a lowball offer. Speak to your attorney about its merits before accepting or declining it.
  • Often, employers will request a mediator to help settle their claims.
  • If a settlement is not agreed upon within 60 days of contacting the EEOC, you are eligible to file a lawsuit seeking damages for the discriminatory violations you faced.
  • If your case goes to court, your San Diego discrimination lawyer will gather the present evidence in your favor to prove that you faced discrimination. We will be beside you throughout the entire legal process.
