An employment law firm in California stands ready to fight for victims of race discrimination in the workplace.
BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representatives of the Akopyan Law Firm announced today that their law firm fights on behalf of victims of race discrimination in the workplace in Los Angeles County.
“There are countless ways an employee can be discriminated due to race, color, or national origin. We are dedicated to protecting employees, and enforcing their rights,” said Michael Akopyan, founder and spokesperson for the Akopyan Law Firm. “We regularly represent employees who have been discriminated against at their workplace in Southern California.”
Race is interpreted broadly to mean groups of people identifiable because of their ancestry or ethnic characteristics. Race and color, while often considered the same thing, are distinct concepts under the law. Each is listed separately as a protected category under the law.
There are state and federal laws that prevent employers from treating their employees differently based on race, color, or national origin. Victims of workplace race discrimination can pursue claims under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) or Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”) both of which prohibit race discrimination in the workplace. These laws provide protection to employees against discrimination in connection with hiring, promotions, compensation, work assignments, demotions, lay-offs, and terminations.
“Employees who are terminated, laid-off, or demoted often don’t know their rights and needlessly suffer at the hands of their supervisors and/or employers,” highlighted Akopyan and added, “Every employee deserves to work in an environment free of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.”
Akopyan invited anyone in Los Angeles County who has suffered race discrimination in the workplace to contact the Akopyan Law Firm’s employment law attorneys in Burbank to discuss their potential case in a complimentary case evaluation.
