We specialize in representing victims of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and employees denied the right to take leave from work.
In California, employment is presumed to be “at-will” unless an employee has a contract for a specified term or a collective bargaining agreement. This means that an employee may be discharged at any time and for any reason so long as it is not for a prohibited reason. There are a number of state and federal statutes which prohibit an employer from terminating an employee or taking other adverse action (e.g., demoting, failing to promote, reducing wages, benefits or responsibilities) including:
We represent employees who have been terminated, harassed or suffered other adverse employment actions because of their race, color, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or national origin.
We represent victims of sexual harassment in the workplace.
We represent employees who have been denied leave for pregnancy, a serious health condition, or a family member’s serious health condition.
If you believe that you are the victim of discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace or that you have been denied family, medical or pregnancy leave, please contact the Law Offices of David S. Levy for a free initial consultation. We typically represent clients in employment law matters on a contingent fee basis, which means that our clients do not pay attorney fees or costs unless and until there is a recovery.
