At Mancini & Associates, our team has extensive experience handling multiple areas of employment law. We know that it is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their race, religion, age, disability, sex, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Employers who allow discrimination to occur will be held accountable for their actions.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is far too common, but the #MeToo movement has shown us that this type of behavior will not be accepted. It is also illegal for employers to retaliate against their workers for raising concerns about illegal activities in the workplace, for filing complaints of harassment or discrimination, or for seeking legal disability accommodations (ADA laws).
At Mancini & Associates, our Sherman Oaks employment law attorneys strive to ensure that workers are paid fairly, including all hourly, salary, overtime, and commission pay they are due. We also work to protect whistleblowers when they need to come forward about any illegal activity their employer is engaged in.
At Mancini & Associates, we firmly believe that anyone injured due to the careless, negligent, or intentional actions of another person deserves to be fairly compensated. Our Sherman Oaks injury lawyers have vast experience helping clients who have been injured due to using or consuming defective products.
Our team also regularly helps those who have been harmed due to various types of professional malpractice. Professional malpractice occurs anytime there is a failure to perform duties or if there is fraud or misrepresentation. Some of the following professionals that we hold accountable include doctors, surgeons, nurses, lawyers, engineers, architects, accountants, and more.
If you operate a business that has suffered a financial injury due to the wrongful actions of others, our Sherman Oaks business litigation lawyers are ready to help. There are various ways in which businesses in our area can suffer harm due to the actions of others, and we are equipped to handle many types of claims, including fraud, negligent misrepresentation, interference with prospective economic advantage, civil conspiracy, malicious prosecution, invasion of privacy, interference with employment relationships, tortious interference with contracts, and more.
Discrimination is illegal, regardless of when and where it happens. Sometimes discrimination can be the subtle denial of a mortgage application or a polite “no thank you” when applying for a job. Other times, discrimination is more blatant, such as the refusal of service at a store. At Mancini & Associates, our Sherman Oaks civil rights attorneys work diligently to ensure that civil rights violators are held accountable.
Civil rights violations include discrimination based on a person’s race, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or illness, age, and more. These violations can happen in the workplace, housing (being denied a mortgage or at lease), banking and loans (being denied a loan based on your appearance), public accommodations (being denied access to public facilities), or right to service (being refused service in a store or restaurant due to ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, etc.).
