Employment Discrimination Lawyers Serving the Fresno Area – Bourdette & Partners

The United States government and the government of California have been working for many years to end discrimination in the workplace. There are many laws on the books to protect workers, but unfortunately, employment discrimination still exists. Based near Fresno in Visalia, California, the law firm of Bourdette & Partners can help you pursue legal action if you feel that you have been discriminated against at your job.

While employers are free, for the most part, to set pay scales, hire, and fire however they see fit, the law prevents them from basing these decisions on race, religion, age, sex, and, under newer statutes, disability and sexual orientation. The laws covering these forms of employment discrimination derive from the California Labor Code, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

If you feel that hiring, firing, pay, or treatment at your place of employment is being based on discriminatory criteria, you may be entitled to compensation. For a consultation regarding an employment discrimination case in Bakersfield, Fresno, and the surrounding Central Valley area, contact the attorneys at Bourdette & Partners.

Whistleblower Law

“Whistleblower” is the name given to a person who reports group misconduct to a higher authority. Whistleblowers go against the established culture of the group or company they are reporting—to serve the greater good by bringing ills to light. Unfortunately whistleblowers often fall victim to retaliation and victimization as a result of their efforts. Whistleblower law protects against that kind of employment discrimination, and holds organizations responsible if it is found that they dismissed or otherwise punished an employee, ensuring that people will not be compelled to withhold information out of fear.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment law is constantly being refined through litigation, but the basic premise remains the same: requests for physical favors, physical contact of a sexual nature, or other unwanted sexual advances which implicitly or explicitly affect a person’s employment or create a hostile environment are prohibited. Sexual harassment laws were created to prevent employees and students from suffering hardships solely on the basis of their refusal to acquiesce to unwanted sexual advances.
