California woman in continuing discrimination case

You Have Rights As A Worker. I Will Help Protect Them.
The Kaufman Law FirmFebruary 25, 2015Employee Rights

If you fulfill the requirements of your position, then there is no reason you should be treated any differently from other employees who do the same. However, it is a sad fact that numerous employees in California face discrimination in their place of work every day. This violation of their employee rights not only makes it harder for them to do their job well, but can also have a lasting effect on their confidence and emotional well-being.

In one particularly high-profile case, a 45-year-old woman has accused her employer of discriminating against her for her gender. The case, which has been ongoing for a number of years, alleges that she was excluded from company dinners, important meetings and even email correspondence because she was a woman.

Six months after she filed the suit, she was dismissed from her position, allegedly due to poor performance. However, the former employee feels that it was a retaliatory action based on her discrimination case. In addition to exclusion from various events and correspondences, she also claims that she experienced harassment. She believes it began after she terminated a brief relationship with a colleague.

Cases like this are all too common and often difficult to get to the bottom of. As a result, many employees have to endure unfair treatment for an unnecessarily long time. If you feel your rights as an employee are being violated in any way, you might benefit from the advice of discrimination attorney. He or she can evaluate your case and may be able to assist you if you decide to make a claim against those responsible.
