Experience with High-Level Employment Discrimination Cases
Baker v. PrivatAir was particularly flagrant case of age discrimination. Mr. Baker was the pilot of a private jet owned by Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, and several maintenance personnel and support staffers thought he was overly frugal with various perks. As such, they collaborated with PrivatAir to trump up maintenance and safety complaints, providing the company with a pretext for firing him.
Few employment discrimination cases are so dramatic. But our employment lawyers know it's not at all unusual for innocent employees to suffer discrimination as a result of:
- Sexual orientation
Wrongful termination cases are the most notable examples of employment discrimination, but you don't have to lose your job to have a reasonable employment discrimination case in the state of California.
Employment discrimination can also affect:
- Other, non-financial benefits
- The allotment of desirable or undesirable job duties
Proving an employment discrimination case requires looking deep into a company's internal matters with a fearless, relentless passion. Our employment discrimination lawyers have just such a passion. We know how to make a compelling case and demonstrate that the discriminatory decisions that negatively affected your career were not reasonable, understandable personnel choices.
