Since 2011, William Bowen has fought to protect the rights of California employees. Bowen Law Firm’s employment practice is dedicated to protecting our clients’ rights in employment litigation. The relationship between employers and employees is more complicated than ever. Employees are often told that they should be happy to have a job at all, and, when they question their treatment, their jobs are threatened. We represent employees who have been injured by their employers and help to compensate them for their losses. Bowen Law Firm handles employment actions involving claims such as:
• Sexual Harassment
• Pregnancy Discrimination
• Age, Race & Gender Discrimination
• Disability Discrimination
• Religious Discrimination
• Negotiating a Severance
• Unpaid Overtime
• Unpaid Wages
• Unreimbursed Expenses
• Whistleblower Claims
• Wrongful Termination
Workplace Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation
The law does not allow employers to discriminate against job applicants or employees because of “protected classifications” such as race, age, sex, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, and transgenderism.
Discrimination is often shown by conduct and statements, such as the denial of a job, wrongful termination, or a changes in the job (wages, hours, bonuses, and job assignments). Only employers/companies can be sued for discrimination, even if a supervisor or manager was the one who discriminated against someone.
