Discrimination in the workplace is completely unacceptable. Yet, countless employees are either wrongfully terminated or forced to accept demotions due to unethical and unlawful business practices. My name is Matthew A. Kaufman and I am a Westlake Village employment law attorney. The loss of a job can be financially devastating. It can affect a person’s ability to pay their bills, rent, mortgage and live a good quality of life. Unfortunately, far too many people struggle in silence and never take action.
Over the years, I have successfully helped men and women in Westlake Village and Los Angeles recover the compensation they deserved, allowing them move on with their lives.
