Workplace Discrimination Attorney in Glendale

Glendale Discrimination Lawyer Standing up for Equality

Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace is all too common, and can significantly threaten an individual’s safety, freedom, and equality in the workplace. For this reason, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees based on a variety of factors. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency that regulates and addresses workplace discrimination cases.

If you have become a victim of workplace discrimination, do not hesitate to get a skilled legal professional on your side. Call Haig B. Kazandjian Lawyers APC at (800) 576-4620 today for a free consultation!
