Oakland Attorneys Advising on Work-Related Discrimination Claims

Laws designed to protect employees from various forms of discrimination do not work automatically. It sometimes takes a legal challenge for employees to assert their rights to freedom from unlawful discrimination and harassment on the job. The same is true of employers aiming to protect themselves from negative repercussions originating with false accusations.

Laws and Training are Often Not Enough to Stop Discrimination

Employee policies, manuals and training should educate workers on how to avoid discrimination or a hostile work environment. Employers generally know they must not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, according to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and other federal and state labor and employment laws. They also know or should know they must not engage in or allow sexual harassment on the job. However, laws and training are often not enough to stop discrimination. Furthermore, lawsuits often target employers unfairly.

Employee: Have You Been Subjected to Discrimination or Harassment? Employer: Have You Been Wrongly Accused?

We often hear from employees and former employees of companies where discrimination as defined by Title VII and equivalent state laws has allegedly occurred. They contact Goins & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, for advice and representation after they:

  • Were not hired, apparently because of race or national origin or for another illegal reason
  • Were demoted, apparently because of veteran status or for another illegal reason
  • Were fired after attempting to take time off work in conformance with provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Were subjected to retaliatory discharge or other forms of retaliation after filing complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

Our attorneys also defend employers facing discrimination claims and accusations of retaliatory terminations and other actions.
