The Law Offices of Daniel Ray Bacon has been a general practice for many years with a diverse history of cases, such as suing foreign governments and foreign diplomats, but specializes in certain areas of legal practice. My major areas of legal practice are employment law, all types of discrimination and civil rights cases, personal injury, civil litigation, and criminal defense as described in the practice area descriptions.

Federal and state laws bar discrimination and apply to all business practices, including the following: Advertisements, Applications, screening, and interviews, hiring, transferring, promoting, terminating, or separating employees, working conditions, including compensation,
participation in a training or apprenticeship program, and employee organization or union membership.  Title VII administered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [EEOC] and The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) administered by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing apply to public and private employers, labor organizations and employment agencies.  To sue for employment discrimination requires exhausting the administrative remedy with either the EEOC or DFEH.

For example, under state law it is illegal for employers of 5 or more employees to discriminate against job applicants and employees because of a protected category, or retaliate against them because they have asserted their rights under the law. To seek advice regarding your matter and to determine if you have been discriminated against, please see below and submit a form under the Contact section.

Employment law deals with the broad practice area of all the legal issues involved in one’s employment.
