Gender Discrimination Lawyers in Woodland Hills
Protecting Your Civil Rights
Discrimination based on your sex or gender is still unfortunately common in many workplaces. Fortunately, both state and federal law has codified a number of workers’ rights, including the right to a harassment-free workplace and the right to receive equal benefits and opportunities. Both men and women can be discriminated against and harassment not only greatly decreases productivity but may cause permanent damage to the reputations of both employers and employees.
If you have been discriminated against at your workplace, contact our Woodland Hills employment law attorneys at the Law Office of Payab & Associates. We can be reached at (818) 918-5522 and are ready to fight for you.
