Discrimination

When it comes to age discrimination, employers have not necessarily become more enlightened with the passage of time. Rather, they have developed more sophisticated methods for getting rid of older workers without apparent discrimination. At the Immigrant Law Group, we have extensive experience litigating age discrimination claims, especially those involving disguised layoffs, downsizing, and departmental reorganizations. We know how to look beneath the surface of the stated reasoning behind an adverse employment action (such as termination) to determine whether an actionable age-based claim exists.

Age discrimination — adverse treatment of workers age 40 or older —

is prohibited by both the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Federal, state and local agencies that receive federal assistance,

including many post-secondary educational institutions, are all bound by this legislation.

Have you been treated unfairly in the workplace because of your gender? Have you been given fewer earning opportunities or assignments because your boss believes your husband can care for your family?
Has your employer denied you leave believing that caring for a sick child should be left to the mother?These situations are not only unfair, they may be unlawful under both Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

In a typical employment discrimination case based on race, an employee claims that he or she was terminated, demoted, or denied promotion on the basis of his or her race, color or ethnic appearance.
Employers frequently claim that there exists a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for the adverse employment action, and that race was not an issue. We must then determine whether the employer’s
stated reason for the adverse employment action was simply a pretext for unlawful discrimination.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with race discrimination claims that helps us to distinguish between non-discriminatory employment actions and true unlawful conduct. Whether you’re African-American, Latino, of Middle Eastern descent, or a member of any other racial or national minority, THE IMMIGRANT LAW GROUP will conduct a careful investigation of your claim and work with seasoned experts to determine whether race discrimination was a likely cause for your termination or demotion. We also work closely with human resources professionals, demographic statisticians, and diversity experts, who can review your employer’s personnel practices, diversity training, and supervisors’ training to see if industry standards and California laws that are designed to prevent race discrimination in
the workplace have been satisfied.
