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.

So, What Is Employment Discrimination? 

Employment discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee unfairly because of their race, sex, religion, age, disability, national origin, or sexual orientation. Discrimination can come in many forms, including: 

  • Refusing to hire a job applicant because they are in a protected class,
  • Paying an employee less because they are in a protected class,
  • Providing different or unequal employment opportunities to an employee because of membership in a protected class,
  • Harassing an employee based on their protected characteristic, or
  • Firing an employee because of their membership in a protected class. 

If you have been a victim of one of the above or another form of employment discrimination, you should reach out to an employment discrimination attorney as soon as possible. 

Santa Clarita Laws Against Employment Discrimination 

There are a number of federal and state laws that protect employees and job applicants from employment discrimination in Santa Clarita. Some of these laws include: 

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act—prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin;
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)—prohibits discrimination based on disability; 
  • The Equal Pay Act (EPA)—requires employees to pay women and men the same wages for equal work;
  • The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (CFEHA)—prohibits discrimination in California based on race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy status, marital status, ancestry, disability, or medical condition; and
  • The California Labor Code—prohibits employer retaliation after an employee makes a complaint about harassment or discrimination. 

Together, these laws prohibit discrimination in the hiring, firing, promotions, pay, training, and benefits of an employee. 

Types of Discrimination Cases That We Handle 

At King & Siegel LLP, we handle every type of employment discrimination case, including: 

  • Age discrimination, 
  • Racial discrimination, 
  • Pregnancy discrimination, 
  • Religious discrimination, 
  • Sexual orientation discrimination, 
  • Disability discrimination, and
  • Gender discrimination. 

If you have been a victim of one of the above, we can help you file a legal claim against your employer. In addition, we can help you navigate the legal process, meet important court deadlines, maximize the amount of compensation that you may be able to receive, and protect your legal rights. 

If you believe you are being discriminated against in the workplace, King & Siegel LLP welcomes you to call our legal team today at (213) 465-4802 for a free review of your case.

Types of Damages in an Employment Discrimination Case

The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission has stated the types of remedies that are available to an employee who makes a discrimination claim. These remedies include damages that fall into two categories: compensatory damages and punitive damages. Some examples of compensatory damages that you may be able to recover include: 

  • Lost wages, 
  • Costs of therapy
  • Costs of medication, 
  • Pain and suffering, 
  • Emotional distress damages, and 
  • Inconvenience damages. 

These damages are intended to compensate the victim for the losses stemming directly from the discrimination. On the other hand, the intention behind punitive damages is to punish the wrong-doer. Punitive damages are less common in employment discrimination cases, but they may still be appropriate when the employer intentionally or maliciously committed an act of discrimination.
