Firm Overview

Sexual harassment can take many forms ranging from off-color comments, requests for dates, lewd descriptions of sexual dreams and touching areas of the employee's body sometimes in private parts. Often, the employee is reluctant to report the misconduct out of fear that she or he will be retaliated against and might even be demoted or fired. This is strictly against the law. Obtaining the right lawyer who has the requisite background in terms of education, ability, and experience is an absolute requirement. In this regard Arthur Kalnit is more than qualified.Disability Discrimination - This type of discrimination involves an employer's or supervisor's misconduct toward an employee who has taken time off because of his or her illness or because of the illness of a close loved one such as a parent, a child, or grandparent. Many employers have tried to fabricate false reasons for termination or discipline of the employee when in truth the disability was the real reason. Under California law all the employee needs to show is that the disability existed and interfered with one of the employee's usual way of living.

Race Discrimination - Race discrimination can run the gamut from the obvious use of racist language to obvious discrimination because of skin color, style of speech or other characteristics.In one particular case, the employee of a credit reporting company had performed his work in such an excellent manner that his supervisor gave him an exceptionally high employment evaluation. Both the client and his supervisor were African Americans and both had been with the company for several years. However, when the Caucasian department head saw the employee's evaluation, he destroyed it and created one of his own for the purpose of denying the employee his well-deserved promotion. The defense was that the department head was using his discretion and was entitled to having a different opinion than the supervisor in evaluating the employee's work. At the pertinent mediation, the case settled for a huge amount of money.

Gender Discrimination - This involves discrimination against an employee because of the fact that he or she is either a male or a female. In many cases, the discrimination consists of failure to hire a person because of his or her gender or have failed to promote or pay the involved employee equal money than is paid to employees of the opposite gender who are paid for doing the same job. While this type of discrimination is usually practiced against women, Mr. Kalnit has also represented males who have been victims of gender discrimination.
