Talk to Our California Sex Discrimination Lawyers

As women, we can listen to your story with compassion and understanding. As experienced trial lawyers, we can zero in on facts critical to your claim and explain to you your options, your opportunities, and the risks. Claims involving family leave, including maternity leave and time off to care for an elderly parent, are governed by confusing, overlapping state laws. We can help you determine the amount of leave to which you are entitled under your circumstances. We encourage women asserting their rights under the CFRA and the FEHA to consult with an attorney familiar with both statutes so that you understand your rights precisely.

Our sex discrimination attorneys represent women with employment discrimination claims involving:

  • Wrongful termination of employment on the basis of sex or gender
  • Employer's refusal to grant time off for medical appointments
  • Retaliation, including discharge after asserting your rights under state or federal family leave law
  • Employer's refusal to accommodate medical conditions, including pregnancy or maternity-related disabilities identified by your physician
  • Termination during maternity leave or termination shortly after your return from maternity leave

We also represent women in cases concerning an employer's failure to promote, refusal to hire, or disparate treatment.
