California Employment Discrimination Attorneys

Bay Area Lawyers Representing Victims of Employer Retaliation

Both state and federal laws protect employees from discrimination in the workplace based on a number of personally identifying factors. Even with stringent rules and regulations in place, some employers continue making hiring, firing, promotion and compensation decisions based on factors other than ability and job performance.

This is not only unfair, it is unlawful. If you feel you have been a victim of discrimination in the workplace, you have a right to pursue legal action. By standing up against injustice in the workplace, you are not only helping yourself, but others who may be facing similar treatment.

For more than 35 years, the attorneys of Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer, in Oakland, California, have represented employees subject to discrimination in the workplace. Taking a stand against your employer can be intimidating. You may fear retaliation. We can help you to understand and protect your rights.
