Victims of Discrimination Can Recover Significant Damages!
Discrimination is prohibited in the workplace under federal and state laws. Legally speaking, discrimination covers actions taken against employees because of their membership or perceived membership in a particular “protected class.” Treating those people differently and negatively compared with other people not in the same class is discrimination. Everyone is part of a protected class. In California, the protected classes include: age, AIDS or HIV-positive status, marital status, domestic partnership, medical condition and genetic characteristics, race or national origin/ancestry, pregnancy, religion, gender or sexual orientation, harassment, and name change.

Discrimination Class Action Lawsuits
When you start or join a class action lawsuit, your voice is added to others. Evidence for a favorable settlement or jury award is more powerful, and monetary damages often increase substantially. If you initiate a discrimination class action litigation claim, you may be able to receive additional compensation called a service award.
