Mistreatment in the workplace can make your life unbearable. You do not have to put up with this mistreatment. Our attorneys at Westrup & Associates, with our main location in Long Beach, have decades of experience protecting the rights of employees throughout California.

You have rights as an employee. You can take legal action against your employer if you believe you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment.

Your Rights As An Employee

It is illegal for employers to discriminate or harass you based on certain protected classes. It is illegal for employers to refuse to hire, fire, discipline, fail to promote, pay less, demote or harass employees based on:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Sexual orientation

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees by prohibiting employers with 15 or more employees from discriminating against their employees based on the characteristics mentioned above.
