We all aspire to hold jobs that are meaningful, rewarding, and provide income to meet our needs and raise our children. While the law does not guarantee that our work meet these aspirations, it creates specific rights for employees such as pregnancy and maternity leave, nursing mother accommodations, and pay equity designed to advance societal goals such as supporting families and overcoming long-standing prejudices.
 
The law also mandates protection against forces that can undermine our sense of self-worth, reduce our wages, block career advancement, and lead to extreme emotional stress. Workplace discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination are all prohibited. Through our website, we seek to inform visitors of rights and protections possessed by all California workers.

Types of Employment Law Claims

While employers are free to hire and fire, to assign work and to discipline employees, the law does not allow them to discriminate against people because of certain qualities, called “protected classifications.” These include race, age, sex, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, transgenderism and (in San Francisco) height and/or weight (California Government Code Section 12940).

Discrimination is often shown by conduct and statements such as the denial of a job, wrongful termination of employment, or a change in the terms or conditions of employment (wages, hours, bonuses and job assignments). Only employers/companies can be sued for discrimination, even if a supervisor or manager was the one who discriminated against someone.

At the Dolan Law Firm, our San Francisco employment lawyers are experienced in handling employment discrimination lawsuits as well as these types of cases:
