CA EMPLOYEES WHO WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST FOR SPEAKING SPANISH AT WORK TAKE LEGAL ACTION: LOS ANGELES ATTORNEY CAN HELP YOU TOO

In California, you cannot be discriminated because of your race or nationality. This also means that your CA employer cannot discriminate, or take any adverse action, against you because you speak another language, in addition to English (if that is what is required of your job). While if your job demands that you communicate with others in English and you were told this when you were hired, you might need to speak English, your employer cannot discriminate against you because you speak another language.

When a group of employees at a nursing care facility in CA were fired several years ago for speaking Spanish at work, they got together and took legal action. As a result, they won almost $500,000 in damages resulting from the discrimination they received at the hands of their employer. Talk to an experienced employment lawyer if you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination at your job.
