Encinitas Employment Lawyer Douglas Walters handles many types of employment law cases, including the following.

Workplace Discrimination Attorney

It is against the law for employers to discriminate against employees in the following areas:

 

Age Discrimination: A worker over age 40 is protected from discrimination at work. The Age Discrimination Employment Act mandates that employers not treat employees in a less favorable manner due to their age.

 

Gender Discrimination: Gender-based wage discrimination is illegal according to the terms of the Equal Pay Act.

 

Marital Status Discrimination: If an employer does not offer employment, promotions, or benefits to an employee, or terminates employment due to marital status, this is against the law. Has your employer committed marital status discrimination? If so, contact our firm. Encinitas Attorney Douglas Walters offers effective representation as a skilled workplace discrimination lawyer.

 

Country of Origin Discrimination: Employers are prohibited from discrimination against employees based on national origin. Such unlawful behavior may lead to financial and legal consequences for the employer.

 

Pregnancy Discrimination: Discrimination due to the pregnancy status of an employee is illegal. Encinitas Employment Law Lawyer Douglas Walters helps clients pursue due compensation and justice after experiencing this kind of discrimination that violates the law.

 

Racial Discrimination: If an employer engages in discrimination towards an employee because of race, ethnicity, or color of skin, this is against the law. Call Employment Law Attorney Doug Walters to obtain effective representation in discrimination cases.

 

Religious Discrimination: Employers who engage in religious discrimination, such as demoting an employee or handing down a workplace infraction, are in violation of the law and put themselves at risk of legal repercussions.

 

Sexual Orientation Discrimination: Individuals who have been subjected to discriminatory actions due to their actual or perceived sexual orientation can find trustworthy representation from Encinitas Employment Lawyer and Workplace Discrimination Attorney Doug Walters.

Disability Discrimination Lawyer

An employer who does not make needed, reasonable accommodations for a disabled employee is in violation of both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Employment and Housing Act. Discrimination against workers who are disabled is prohibited by law. When an employee needs certain accommodations to be made in order to accomplish their job properly, the employer must make these accommodations. Such measures may include bathroom access. Contact Disability Discrimination Attorney Douglas Walters to receive a careful evaluation of your specific case.

 

Employee Misclassification Attorney

When a worker is purposely misclassified as a contractor in order for the employer to avoid paying for overtime, workers compensation, or other benefits, serious consequences may result. Mr. Walters is a skilled employee misclassification lawyer who stands up for the rights of workers.

 

Sexual Harassment Lawyer

There are many types of unwelcome sexual advances, remarks, and conduct that can be termed sexual harassment. As a long-time Encinitas employment attorney and sexual harassment attorney, Mr. Walters provides strong representation in these cases because he believes no one should be treated in such a disrespectful, degrading manner.

Whistleblower Protection Lawyer

If a worker alerts the authorities to a fraudulent activity that the employer is engaged in, at that time the worker comes under the protection of the law. Whistleblower laws  have been enacted to protect employees from retaliation, including termination. Encinitas Employment Lawyer Douglas Walters has proven himself to be a reliable whistleblower protection attorney by working to protect employee rights after they have reported unlawful actions or taken part in a workplace investigation.
