Browne Labor Law is a Los Angeles employment discrimination law firm that serves all California cities and counties. Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys aggressively advocate for California employees who have experienced employment discrimination in the workplace.
A Los Angeles Employment Discrimination Law Firm Advocating under State and Federal Law
Browne Labor Law advocates for California employees under state and federal law. Under federal law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Additionally, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (ADA), prohibits employment discrimination against employees with disabilities. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) prohibits sex-based wage discrimination for men and women who perform substantially equal work. Furthermore, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) prohibits age discrimination against employees who are 40 years old or older. Browne Labor Law is Los Angeles employment discrimination law firm that advocates for employees under each of these statutes.
The California Fair Housing and Employment Act (FEHA) provides even broader protections than its federal counterpart. For example, in addition to protecting workers from the forms of discrimination mentioned in the previous paragraph, FEHA prohibits discrimination based on marital status and sexual orientation. It also provides broader protections for employees with disabilities. Furthermore, FEHA applies to employers who employ 5 or more employees, and a victim of sexual harassment need only work for a 1 person employer in order to bring a claim under FEHA. Under most federal discrimination laws, the number of employees required to bring a claim is greater. Browne Labor Law is a Los Angeles employment discrimination law firm that advocates for employees under the aforementioned laws.
A Los Angeles Employment Discrimination Law Firm Representing Employees at all Stages of an Employment Discrimination Claim
Unlike some other Los Angeles employment discrimination law firms, Browne Labor Law represents employees during both the pre-litigation and litigation stages of a claim. Employees are typically required to first file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or a complaint of discrimination with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) before bringing an employment discrimination lawsuit. Browne Labor Law represents employees at all stages of the EEOC/DFEH process, including EEOC investigations, EEOC mediations, DFEH investigations, and DFEH mediations. Additionally, the Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys also represent employees who have received a right to sue letter from either agency.
