employment discrimination lawyers in Fremont

Workplace discrimination is a pervasive problem. Its insidious impact affects the well-being and career advancement of the employees and negatively influences the overall work environment. Because workplace discrimination can affect everything from an employee’s mental health to finances, employees must understand their legal rights and seek legal help when necessary to protect those rights.

At King & Siegel LLP, our Fremont employment discrimination lawyers have dedicated their lives to ensuring equal employment opportunities for all, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or pregnancy status. Our team prides itself on fighting for the rights of people affected by workplace discrimination and on our tireless and compassionate commitment to ensuring that victims receive justice.

How Does Equal Employment Opportunity Relate to Workplace Discrimination?

Equal employment opportunity (EEO) is a legal principle prohibiting employers from engaging in discriminatory practices based on specific protected characteristics. In the United States, federal and state laws ensure that all individuals receive fair workplace treatment, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or pregnancy status. In California, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) enforce these state and federal laws and serve as a crucial safeguard against workplace prejudice.

Why Should I Hire Fremont Employment Discrimination Lawyers?

The following are just a few key reasons why hiring a lawyer is vital:

  • Knowledge of federal and state laws – Employment lawyers are well-versed in federal and California workplace discrimination laws. They can help you understand the protections these laws afford you and determine if your employer violated any statutes.
  • Experience in handling discrimination claims – Employment discrimination attorneys have a wealth of experience handling various discrimination claims. They understand these claims’ intricacies and nuances and can develop effective strategies to fight for your rights.
  • Navigating the legal process – Filing a discrimination claim can involve numerous administrative and legal steps. An employment attorney can guide you through these steps, from filing your complaint to representing you in court if necessary.
  • Access to resources – Employment discrimination lawyers have access to expert witnesses, investigators, and research tools that can help build a strong case in your favor. These resources can be crucial in substantiating your claim and presenting compelling evidence that supports your case.
  • Negotiation skills – Employment lawyers are skilled negotiators who effectively communicate with opposing counsel, mediators, and judges. They can negotiate favorable settlements or fight for your rights in court, ensuring you receive fair compensation for your damages.
  • Emotional support – Navigating the legal system can be emotionally taxing. An employment discrimination attorney in Fremont can provide much-needed support and reassurance throughout the process, helping you maintain your sanity through a difficult time.

I was really nervous about hiring a lawyer but Julian and everyone in her office made the process as stress-free as it could be. She is kind, reassuring and confident and that helps make the process feel less scary. she also knows what kinds of outcomes are reasonable and will explain in detail why, and has a plan to get there. I cannot recommend her more highly.

I had the pleasure of being represented by this wonderful office and their attorneys! They were very quick about answering any questions and most times explained things so well that my questions were answered before I got the chance to ask them. I had an amazing experience, everyone is kind and very attentive to your wants and needs. A case can be very stressful and they did a great job at keeping me sane and comfortable through the entire process. I recommend them 100%.

This in an incredibly professional and responsive firm. There was an ease about getting initial information, scheduling, and working with their talented team. While I found it to be true of everyone that I encountered here, it was Julian Burns King that really went above and beyond. Her expertise, experience, and knowledge of employment law and its many facets coupled with her empathy and compassion for her clients, is truly one of a kind. I would absolutely recommend King & Siegel to anyone in need of legal advice or representation.

Julian & Elliot are very good lawyers and I am glad I trusted them with my case. When I hired attorneys, I didn't know what to look for, but I am glad I found them. They were always attentive to my case and I never felt lost even though I did not have any prior experience with litigation. Ultimately, they got a result I was happy with and I am so glad I had them to help me put this experience behind me. You would be lucky to have them in your corner.

What Types of Employment Discrimination Claims Does King & Siegel Handle?

The following are just a few examples of the employment discrimination claims the skilled employment attorneys at King & Siegel handle.

Age Discrimination

Workplace age discrimination can manifest in various ways, including unequal pay, denial of promotions, or even wrongful termination based on age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects individuals aged 40 and above from such unjust treatment, ensuring employers afford them the same opportunities as their younger counterparts.

Religious Discrimination

Religious discrimination involves the unfair treatment of an individual based on their religious beliefs or practices. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects against religious discrimination, requiring employers to accommodate employees’ religious practices, including time off for religious observances, if it doesn’t cause the employer undue hardship.

Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination involves mistreating an employee based on their gender, including issues related to gender identity and expression. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protect against gender discrimination in the workplace, including unequal pay, sexual harassment, or a hostile work environment based on gender affiliation.

Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Sexual orientation discrimination is when an employer treats an employee unjustly based on the employee’s actual or perceived sexual orientation. This type of discrimination can lead to a hostile work environment, career stagnation, and wrongful termination and is covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act under the category of gender discrimination.

Racial Discrimination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the workplace based on race, color, or national origin. This type of discrimination can manifest in various ways, from biased hiring practices to hostile work environments.

Pregnancy Discrimination

Pregnancy discrimination occurs when an employer mistreats an employee because of her pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) ensures pregnant employees are afforded the same rights and opportunities as their non-pregnant colleagues.

Disability Discrimination

When an employer treats an employee with a physical or mental disability unfairly because of their condition, it is considered disability discrimination. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects against disability discrimination, requiring employers to make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities.
