What's Considered Discrimination?

Practice Areas

Discrimination generally means unequal or unfair treatment based on their race, religion, sex, gender, age, disability, or national origin. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act, employers in the state of California can face lawsuits if they discriminate against any such group.

Discrimination can look different from company to company or person to person. Common examples of discrimination include firing, demoting, refusing to hire, or otherwise treating an employee or applicant unfairly. At Guardian Litigation Group, LLP, we proudly use our decades of combined legal experience to investigate, negotiate, and successfully litigate employment discrimination claims on behalf of employees from a wide range of industries.

We believe in using our extensive resources at our advanced, modernized firm to help clients defend and uphold their rights against employers who treat them unfairly. Let us take a look at your case today so we can guide you through the legal process and explain your options under the law.
