California Civil Rights Law Group, a San Francisco Bay Area law firm specializing in sexual harassment and discrimination law, is proud to announce a short, informative post for the lay public on workplace discrimination and harassment. Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, these issues remain common at work, and persons who may be experiencing either harassment or discrimination (or both) are urged to not only read the post but reach out for a private, confidential attorney consultation.
“Employees may tolerate behavior at work that is not only unethical but illegal,” explained Larry Organ, principal attorney at the Bay Area-based law firm. “The post explains to the layperson some of the issues involved in seuxl harassment and workplace discrimination not only here in the San Francisco Bay Area but really anywhere in California or the United States.”
To read the post in full visit https://www.civilrightsca.com/2018/05/12/what-to-do-discrimination-at-work/. The post has easy links for more information embedded in it; for example, to learn about sexual harassment legal issues in easy-to-understand language, visit https://www.civilrightsca.com/sexual-harassment-discrimination/sexual-harassment/. It must be noted, however, that nothing on the website nor the blog should be construed as legal advice. Persons who believe that they may be facing harassment or discrimination should reach out to the law firm for a private, confidential attorney consultation. With San Francisco Bay Area offices in both San Anselmo (Marin County) and Oakland (Alameda County), the law firm makes it easy for persons to reach out. Indeed, those in San Francisco or down the Peninsula can also take advantage of phone consultations with the firm’s attorneys.
The blog post identifies three important steps. The first step is to preserve evidence. Second, it recommends that an employee report any harassing or discriminatory conduct to a supervisor and/or the human resources department. Third, a complaint should be filed as soon as possible with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the federal Equal Opportunity Commission. Finally, the post recommends that an attorney should be consulted as the administrative and legal issues are complex and subject to error.
