Spanish-Speaking Los Angeles Attorney to File a Lawsuit for Workplace Discrimination Injury

In a city as diverse as Los Angeles, it unfortunate is common to hear about workplace discrimination. What is workplace discrimination? Workplace discrimination is when someone is treated unfavorably based on personal characteristics. Discrimination can be based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, and retaliation.

If you have been the victim of discrimination based on any of the previously mentioned personal characteristics, you need to talk to an experienced attorney. Do you prefer communicating in another language—like Spanish? Do not worry; you can meet with a qualified Spanish speaking lawyer experienced in workplace discrimination cases in Los Angeles.

An expert Los Angeles attorney with experience handling workplace discrimination claims that speaks Spanish will be able to explain some laws that are in place to protect employees from workplace discrimination. Contact one of our experienced lawyers at the top-rated Normandie Law Firm for more information. In the next few sections, we will discuss some of the protections available to employees.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964—Title VII
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits any employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. Generally, Title VII applies to employers with fifteen or more employees—this includes federal, state, and local governments. Title VII also extends to both public and private colleges and universities, labor organizations, and employment agencies.

If you would like to take legal action against your employer, you can do so via Title VII and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal agency in charge of handling and enforcing anti-discrimination laws. You must begin the process as soon as possible. The EEOC only allows you 180 days from the last incident to file a complaint. To file a complaint with the EEOC, you must visit their website. You have the option to file the charge online, in person, or by mail. The most efficient way to file a charge is online; however, you can use the option that is most appropriate for you. After you submit your complaint, the EEOC will investigate the claim and either dismiss the claim or file a lawsuit against the employer. If the EEOC dismisses or is unable to settle the claim, you will receive a right-to-sue letter. Once you have received your right-to-sue letter, you can contact your work discrimination attorney that speaks Spanish and begin the process of filing a job discrimination lawsuit.

If you do not wish to go through the EEOC, you can simply request a right-to-sue letter. The EEOC will not investigate your claim, and you will be able to pursue your own lawsuit along with a skilled Spanish-speaking attorney.

California Department of Fair Employment and Housing
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is the state agency responsible for enforcing laws against workplace discrimination. The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) applies to employers, labor organizations, and employment agencies—both public and private. The FEHA makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees because of a protected category—race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, medical conditions, genetic information, marital status, and military status.

Filing a complaint with the DFEH is similar to filing a complaint with the EEOC. You must submit a pre-complaint inquiry form within one year of the last incident. Within 60 days of submitting your claim, an investigator will call you go over the details of your complaint. After a few steps—like attempting a voluntary resolution—the DFEH will attempt mediation. If that fails, the DFEH might file its own lawsuit.

Like previously mentioned, if you do not wish to go through the DFEH to file your claim, you can file your own lawsuit. You must also file a complaint to receive a right-to-sue notice. This will allow you to pursue your own lawsuit with a Spanish speaking discrimination law firm. An accomplished attorney with expertise in workplace discrimination injury lawsuits will be able to assist you.

Compensation Available
Depending on your specific situation, the outcome of your case can vary. If you were unlawfully fired, you might be eligible to receive back pay and front pay—the pay you lost and the pay you will lose. It is possible to be compensated for the emotional distress caused by the workplace discrimination. You might also be reinstated in your past position or offered a promotion. The company might go through some policy changes and might require all staff to go through training to prevent future incidents from happening. To get a more comprehensive breakdown of the compensation that you might be eligible to receive, make sure you contact an experienced attorney in Los Angeles who speaks Spanish.
