Employment Discrimination

Lawyers Fighting Discrimination in the California Workplace

At the Sacramento law firm of Perkins & Associates, one of the commitments we make to our clients is to always tell them the truth. The truth about employment discrimination cases is this: It can be hard to prove actual discrimination. Employers have become smarter and more politically correct. In many cases, employers may claim a "legitimate" non-discriminatory reason for their actions.

The fact that you have suffered an adverse employment action such as demotion or termination may not be enough. As your attorneys, we will need proof - a preponderance of evidence - that the adverse action was based on your:

  • Race or ethnicity
  • Country of origin
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Sexual preference or gender identity

For honest answers and a realistic evaluation of your case, contact us today. We can help you understand your rights and options in fighting employment discrimination.

Proving Discrimination in the Workplace

We strive to acquire all the evidence necessary to prove employment discrimination or wrongful termination, such as memos or emails that use racial slurs or detail unlawful employment practices.

In employment discrimination cases, the team at Perkins & Associates has demonstrated an ability to subpoena records and require the production of documents that can illustrate illegal practices. We have hired forensic experts to mirror employers' hard drives and access data and information that has been deleted but not overwritten. We have been able in the past to gather sufficient proof of employment discrimination to obtain financial compensation for our clients.

Financial Compensation, Personal Vindication and Social Justice

Some of our clients who believe they have been subject to employment discrimination are primarily focused on financial compensation. Others seek personal vindication. Many wish to ensure that this type of discrimination does not happen to others in the future. We can help you clarify your goals and evaluate the potential benefits and costs of filing an employment discrimination lawsuit.

The lawyers at Perkins & Associates will help you look at the situation objectively. Filing a workplace discrimination lawsuit can be costly in terms of your time and your money. It will be your decision if pursuing a lawsuit is worth the investment required. If you have a case and wish to pursue your claim, we will represent your interests aggressively and apply our decades of litigation experience to the fight for the justice you deserve.
