Oakland Gender Discrimination Attorneys

Workers in all industries in the state of California have rights. Arguably, the most important of those rights are your civil rights. Employers violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 if they discriminate against workers based on their gender. Jobs that are only suitable for men or only suitable for women are few and far between. If you have any questions about gender discrimination or you believe you have experienced sex discrimination, it is important to consult with an experienced employment discrimination lawyer.

At Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, we take discrimination claims very seriously. We represent women and men with discrimination claims, and we have main offices in Oakland and Los Angeles. We serve clients throughout the state, and we are available to address your concerns today.
