When employers violate state and federal laws concerning the treatment of their employees, those employees who have been harmed need to seek out the legal protections available to them. Employment law issues are serious and should be taken seriously because they involve your livelihood. The experienced employment law attorneys at the Law Offices of Kenechi R. Agu have handled many cases concerning:
- Employment discrimination based on color, race, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability;
- Wage discrimination based on gender;
- Wrongful termination of employment;
- Arbitration of wrongful termination grievances; and
- Sexual harassment in the workplace.
Discrimination in the Workplace
There are many types of discrimination that can happen in the workplace. Employment discrimination is any discrimination on the bases of color, race, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability that occurs in relation to any aspect of employment, including but not limited to hiring, firing, promotion, compensation, retention, scheduling, assignment or treatment. No one should ever be subjected to the embarrassment and injustice of employment discrimination. If you have been a victim of employment discrimination, you should contact an experienced employment discrimination attorney immediately.
Wrongful Termination of Employment
There are instances of termination of employment that violate federal and state laws designed to protect employees from wrongful termination. While many employment positions held by the California workforce are “at will” employment arrangements, meaning that either the employer or employee may walk away from the employment at any time, there are some employment arrangements in which unjustified premature termination would be considered wrongful termination, which is illegal. If you have been the victim of what you believe is wrongful termination of your employment, contact a Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer today.
Sexual harassment is harassment of a sexual nature that happens when a business, service or professional relationship exists between the victim and his or her harasser. It can happen anywhere, including the workplace, and is not limited to conduct that crosses gender lines. Sexual harassment can happen even if the harasser and the victim are of the same sex. The workplace should never feel like a hostile environment and sexual harassment should never be a condition of employment, as either situation may qualify as sexual harassment in the work place. If someone has sexually harassed you, you are a victim of sexual harassment and should seek the legal counsel of an experienced sexual harassment lawyer serving the Los Angeles area.
