Los Angeles Discrimination Attorney
Fighting for the Rights of Workers
While a worker is in a position of employment that can put them under a manager, supervisor or other figure, this should in no way mean that their rights are overlooked and they are mistreated. As a worker there are basic rights that are protected under the law and it is an unfortunate situation that many employers think it is acceptable to ignore these rights. When a case such as this arises, action should be taken and the Los Angeles job discrimination lawyer at the Employment Lawyer's Group can do just that.
We are a professional Los Angeles County law firm that is committed to representing past, prospective, and current employees who have been victims of discrimination in the workplace. At Employment Lawyer's Group, we proudly represent victims of age discrimination,
sexual discrimination and more. It is our belief that no one should be mistreated for a characteristic of their, especially those that should have no input on their work performance. That is why we put in our full effort to obtain justice and results. This includes for those that suffer a
disability or other
medical condition, and while they may have hindrances, they should not be mistreated in any office.
Our team has a wealth of experience. Our founding attorney has handled over 1400 cases and has been doing so
since 1993. The efforts of our team have proven successful time and time again, with Attorney Gerber retaining a 100 percent win rate for first-chair trials. We strive for a higher standard as a team because we know the impact that these outcomes have for the lives of our clients. Discrimination is something that no one should have to endure and typically the factors that people face discrimination for are in no way related to their ability to carry out the duties of their job.
As a result of their differences, some people face what is known as the glass ceiling, and this can be an invisible barrier that exists, restricting them from climbing higher up the corporate ladder. Other cases we handle include
maternity leave, and
pregnancy discrimination. There are laws at both the federal and the state level that have been implemented to protect the rights of workers and we are thoroughly acquainted with these. If an area of the law is in any way related to the cases of our clients, we make it our business to be up to date on it. Our skilled Los Angeles attorneys are committed to doing everything we can to protect our clients' rights and to prevent further illegal treatment.

While there have been many advances in our culture that promote equality amongst individuals from different walks of life, discrimination is still an all too common issue at the workplace, in medical offices, while shopping at department stores, and in a host of other arenas.

For this reason, our law office has chosen to represent numerous persons throughout the state of California who have been the victim of any type of discrimination.
