Los Angeles Sexual Orientation Discrimination

California recently passed a law recognizing actual or perceived sexual orientation as a protected class. In the same way that employees are protected from discrimination or harassment based on gender, race, age, religion, and disability, employees are now protected against discriminatory treatment based on their sexual orientation. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we are committed to providing relentless advocacy on behalf of employers who have suffered discrimination or wrongful termination based on their sexual orientation.

Los Angeles, California, Gender Discrimination

Taking adverse employment action against an individual because of his or her gender is unlawful behavior under both Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment Act. No person should have to endure such treatment by their co-workers or their employer. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we provide relentless advocacy on behalf of individuals who have suffered gender discrimination by an employer or potential employer.

Los Angeles, California, Religious Discrimination

California law and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act protect people of all faiths--Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and all other religious faiths--against unfair or retaliatory treatment based on their religious beliefs. This is a sacred right and protection to most Americans, as is the right to work in a healthy workplace environment.

Los Angeles, California, Race Discrimination

Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and California state law have established basic protections for individuals against discrimination based on race, color, creed, or national origin. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we are devoted to ensuring that these basic civil rights are promoted and employees are protected against discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination based on racial bias.

Los Angeles, California Employment Retaliation

All too often, when an employee complains about unlawful behavior by a supervisor, manager, or employer, it is the employee who is disciplined or fired in retaliation. Retaliation against employees for participation in "protected activities", including reporting wrongful conduct by an employer is unlawful. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we have extensive experience advocating on behalf of individuals who have suffered employment retaliation and wrongful discharge.

Los Angeles, California, Disability Discrimination

Under California and federal law, employees are protected from harassment and discrimination in the workplace based on actual or perceived disability. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we advocate relentlessly on behalf of individuals who have been denied employment, suffered unlawful treatment, and been wrongfully terminated due to physical or mental disability.

Los Angeles, California, Age Discrimination

Individuals over the age of 40 are considered a protected class under the law. In the same way that an individual cannot be discriminated against by an employer based on race or gender, so must individuals be protected from workplace harassment or discrimination based on age.

Los Angeles, California, Whistle Blower Protection Lawyers

Although the term "whistle blower" was originally used to describe an employee who reported illegal actions of a company or corporation that was defrauding the government, over time the definition has expanded to include any employee who reports corporate or business crimes, committed without the victim's knowledge. This type of action has the potential for resulting in adverse, retaliatory conduct targeted at the employee, by the employer who has been implicated for wrongful conduct.
