Areas of Practices



Discrimination


California law provides employees with broad protections against discrimination based on race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability or medical condition, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age (40 or older), and pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. These protections exist in hiring, terminating, promoting, compensating, and other conditions or privileges of employment.

If you feel that you have been discriminated against by your employer, contact Mozaffari Law at (323)696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is the most common form of workplace harassment. Sexual harassment is generally defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, under any of the following conditions: (i) submission to such conduct is made a condition of employment, either expressly or impliedly, (ii) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting that individual, or (iii) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

Some of the examples of sexual harassment at the workplace include unwelcome sexual propositions or relationship proposals; unwelcome hugging, kissing, or other offensive physical contact of a sexual nature; unwelcome lewd gestures, remarks, or innuendoes; unwelcome discussions of sexual practices or anatomy; and unwelcome sexually offensive posters, photographs, drawings, cartoons, jokes, stories, nicknames, or comments about appearance.

Although sexual harassment often involves a heterosexual employee or supervisor making unwelcome sexual advances to a heterosexual employee of opposite gender, there are a growing number of cases involving same-sex sexual harassment and sexual harassment against LGBT employees.

If you feel that you have been subject to sexual harassment at your workplace, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Harassment

Although sexual harassment is the most common form of harassment at the workplace, harassment based on any of the following protected characteristics may be equally actionable: Harassment based on an employee’s race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy and childbirth, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, age (40 or older), physical or mental disability, medical condition, or veteran status. Harassment may include all forms of offensive or unwelcome physical or verbal conduct based on any of the above factors that interferes with an employee’s work or creates an offensive and hostile working environment.

If you feel that you have been subject to harassment at your workplace, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Retaliation

If you have been fired, demoted, or otherwise disciplined at work for asserting a protected right, you may have a claim for retaliation. Retaliation by an employer may be in response to a “protected action”, including but not limited to, the filing of a worker’s compensation claim, complaint of discrimination, harassment, or other unlawful practices at the workplace, or taking leave for pregnancy, maternity or a family member’s illness.

If you feel that you have been retaliated against at your workplace for engaging in a protected activity, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Whistleblower

Some employees are fired, demoted, or otherwise disciplined for reporting health and safety violations or other illegal activities at the workplace. Under whistleblower laws, such employer conduct is unlawful. If you feel that you have been retaliated against for reporting unsafe and unlawful activities or conditions at your workplace, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Wrongful Termination

Most employment relationships in California are considered “at-will” – meaning that an employer is free to discharge the employee for “good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all.” However, at-will employment does not mean that employee may be fired for a discriminatory reason or for reporting an illegal act committed by the employer. If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated from your employment, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


Wage & Hour

If you are being taken advantage of at your place of employment by not being properly compensated for your work, you may have a remedy under the law. Some of the most common wage and hour violations include misclassification of employees as “exempt” from receiving minimum wage and/or overtime pay; failure to provide meal and rest breaks as required by law; failure to compensate employees for tasks required to prepare for work; and failure to provide proper pay stubs that include the required information under the law.

If you feel that you are not being properly compensated for your work or that your employer is otherwise violating your wage and hour rights, contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.


School Bullying

Bullying is becoming increasingly prevalent in our schools. If not stopped, bullying may have long-term effects on the victims. In many cases, bullying may be prevented by reporting bullying incidents to the school or other appropriate authorities. However, there are cases where consultation with an attorney becomes necessary. It is especially important to consult with an attorney in the following cases: (i) The student has been physically or sexually assaulted; (ii) the bullying behavior was reported to a teacher, the school principal, or other administrative official, but the bully was not disciplined and the bullying has continued; or (iii) a teacher, coach or other adult at school is the one doing the bullying.

Mozaffari Law is committed to representing students and parents in student bullying and harassment cases. Contact Mozaffari Law at (323) 696-0702 or Info@mozaffarilaw.com, for a free and confidential consultation.
