“Federal and state laws in America do not allow discrimination in hiring, promotion, termination and other aspects of employment on the basis of the employees’ race, gender, religion, national origin, disability, or age. If you have a question about employment discrimination or wrongful termination, you can discuss it with us,” commented a senior lawyer with the firm.
Termination in itself is not illegal as per The Fair Employment and Housing Act in California, that brings the onus on the employee to prove that the line of illegality was crossed. The state recognizes the doctrine of ‘at will’ employment meaning that an employee can quit any time they want, or a company can fire one if they do not require the person’s services. Neither party is required to provide a reason for doing that. The law regards employment discrimination, wrongful termination and retaliation exceptions.
An employee can prove their case of employment discrimination and wrongful termination by the direct method or the direct method. The lawyer said, “An explicit comment made by the person who committed the discrimination would involve an admission, making the case easier. However, indirect method of proof is more common.”
In indirect method, an employee needs to prove that they are qualified for the promotion and are of a protected classification than people who were treated better. Second step is the company giving a reason for different treatment. The employee has to prove then that the reason provided by the company is a lie. As employment discrimination lawyers in Los Angeles, they work to get optimum relief for their clients, who are always employees.
