Sexual Harassment

Experiencing sexual harassment at work is stressful and scary, but there is no need to go through it by yourself. Whether you are facing verbal sexual harassment, offers for job benefits in exchange for sexual favors, or physical assault, you should never have to face this treatment at work. With the help of an experienced employment attorney, you can find the best course of action to protect yourself. Learn more Learn more

Disability Discrimination

California laws protect workers with mental and physical disabilities or medical conditions from discrimination and wrongful termination based on their disability. But too often, employers terminate their employees for requesting or taking medical leaves of absence, or for complaining about disability discrimination. Our office has helped people in this situation gain seven figure compensation for this kind of discrimination. Learn more

Sexual Assault

Sadly, if you have been a victim of sexual assault, you are not alone. In fact, every 98 seconds, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Civil lawsuits can provide sexual assault survivors the opportunity to stand up for their rights and collect significant monetary damages against their attacker or, if the attacker is in their workplace, from the employer. We prioritize our clients well-being, and put together teams to make sure our clients feel supported, strong, and empowered at every step of the legal process. Learn more

Child Sexual Abuse

Sexual assault of a child is a horrific crime that causes severe and lasting psychological trauma. When children have been abused and sexually assaulted at school, church or other organization, they often feel ashamed and confused. At Strong Advocates, we fight for survivors of sexual abuse to regain the power that was stolen from them when they were abused as children. Learn more

Family and Medical Leave Act Claims

Eligible workers are entitled to 12 workweeks of leave in a year under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) without being terminated, provided they have been employed for at least 12 months for a private-sector company with 50 or more workers, a public/private elementary/secondary school or a public agency. The California Family Rights Act provides even broader protection. Learn more

Pregnancy Discrimination

An employer is prohibited from making any adverse decisions relating to a worker based on pregnancy. This can also include childbirth or any conditions or other aspects associated with pregnancy and childbirth, such as breastfeeding or medical conditions, such as preeclampsia or diabetes. Pregnancy discrimination is in violation of numerous federal and state laws. Learn more

Gender Discrimination

An individual may not legally be denied a job or promotion because of their gender. Under federal and state laws, everyone has the right to be treated fairly, receive fair compensation for work, and be entitled to opportunities in the workplace no matter what their gender may be. Unfortunately, gender discrimination may occur in termination practice, hiring practices, failing to promote certain individuals or unfair job standards. Learn more

Racial Discrimination

Federal and state laws prohibit racial and national origin discrimination in all aspects of employment, including the hiring process, promotions, benefit assignment, compensation, job assignment and training. Learn more
 
 

Whistleblower Retaliation

It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you because you complained about illegal activity. This means that your employer cannot terminate you because you complained to HR that your supervisor was discriminating against you, or because you complained to a state agency that your employer was committing fraud. Learn more

Wrongful Termination

California is an “at will” state, meaning employers may terminate an employment relationship for any cause or no cause at all. But it is illegal for an employer to terminate an employee because of their disability, race or national origin, gender, religion, or other protected category. Learn more
