San Francisco Employment Law Attorney: Discrimination and Harassment
Why Should I Contact An Employment Lawyer?
Employers mistreat their employees more frequently than one might imagine. They do it all the time. This mistreatment can take many forms, some more obvious than others. You might feel that your employer has mistreated you, but you might be confused about whether this conduct rises to the level of illegal treatment giving you the right to sue in court.
Let’s say you feel like something does not feel right about the way your employer is treating you. If you think that their conduct just isn’t right, you should find out whether that conduct might be the basis of a case in court.
In cases where the employer’s conduct is a violation of the law, you have the legal right to fight back against employment and labor law violations. To do this, you need a legal advocate with enough resources and experience to stand up to the powers that be. You can’t do this by yourself.

How Does Employer Misconduct Effect Employees?
Employment discrimination and harassment usually has very, very significant and damaging effects on the mental condition, emotions, and feelings of employees. So, those who have been the victims of unlawful conduct in the workplace usually are facing a range of emotions: depression, anxiety, anger, humiliation, a sense of injustice and feelings of helplessness. It all seems overwhelming.
If you have been wrongfully terminated, your primary concerns are probably about your and your family’s financial well-being and security. How will I support myself and my family if I have been terminated? I don’t have any income coming in. How will this termination affect my career? Just as employees are at their emotional lows, they are also forced to confront harsh economic realities of trying to survive without a job.
Things may seem really bad. But do not give up hope. Employees have many rights that are protected by law. Prospective employees do as well. So if your employer discriminates against you, you should seek out a qualified attorney to get you compensation for your emotional damages and loss of income. Don’t give up! Take action to hold your employer legally accountable.
If you’re worried about whether or not you can afford a lawyer, stop. At the Law Offices of Daniel Feder, we offer contingency fee arrangements, meaning that you don’t have any obligation to pay attorney’s fees until there is a settlement or judgment in your favor. If there’s no recovery, there is no fee.
Employment law claims are highly complex. Absolutely do not hire a lawyer to handle your case because they are friends of a friend or family.
