San Francisco Employment Law Attorneys
Having represented both employees and employers for a number of years, our legal professionals at the DeVito Law Group understand both sides of an employment legal issue. From our law offices in Mill Valley, California, our employment law attorneys serve clients in these practice areas:
Harassment / Discrimination
As an employee, you need and have the right to work in an environment free of harassment and discrimination. As an employer, you want to prevent harassment and discrimination from occurring in your place of work and respond adequately and effectively to complaints of harassment and discrimination. Our specialists at the DeVito Law Group can assist you to address your harassment or discrimination concerns.
Disabled employees deserve to have a work environment that allows job performance. If you have been denied a reasonable accommodation by your employer or have been discriminated against for requesting an accommodation, our employment lawyers can advocate for your needs. We will negotiate disability accommodations and advise employers in evaluating procedures for establishing disability accommodations.
If you were wrongfully terminated because of your race, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, marital status, medical condition, gender or because you complained about your employer’s unlawful conduct, or you refused to engage in unlawful conduct, we at the DeVito Law Group can help you.
