Putting An End To Workplace Discrimination

Last updated on December 21, 2021

Experiencing discrimination at work can feel dehumanizing and discouraging. You may feel as if you have no one to confide in and no way out of your situation. But all that can change when you work with me.

At Law Offices of David S. Secrest, I use my 20-plus years of legal experience to put an end to workplace discrimination. You can rely on me to stand up for your rights, put an end to the discrimination you are suffering and seek maximum compensation for lost wages and other damages. From my office in Santa Barbara, I serve clients in a variety of industries throughout California.

What Are The Protected Classes?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) identifies six categories of people protected from discrimination in the workplace. These classes include:

  • Race
  • Gender and sexual orientation
  • Nation of origin
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Disability

If you belong to one of these categories and believe that you have experienced discrimination, reach out to me. I know how to document the incidents, gather evidence and hold your employer accountable for its actions.

What Are Some Examples Of Discrimination?

Many workers experience discrimination at their jobs without even realizing it. Why? Because discriminatory behavior is often widely accepted and deeply ingrained in workplace culture. Some of the most common examples include:

  • Offensive jokes
  • Posting offensive material
  • Repeated romantic or sexual advances
  • Reassignment to less-desirable job duties
  • Wrongful termination

When you speak with me, I can determine whether you have an actionable case.
