Representing Victims Of National Origin Harassment

National origin and ancestry harassment in the workplace is prohibited by California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”). National origin harassment may include harassment of an individual because that person is from a particular country, is of a particular ethnicity associated with another country, has an accent or appears to be from a particular part of the world, even if that is not true.

We live in an ethnically diverse society, which can enrich our lives. Yet, there are times when the mix of various ethnicities and cultures may lead to serious problems in the workplace. You have legal rights and should never have to deal with cultural or ethnic harassment in the workplace — but when it happens, you need a lawyer who knows how to stand up for your rights. Backed by over 40 years of experience, Buchsbaum & Haag, LLP, has been dedicated to helping people just like you.

Types Of Cases We See

Two decades of representing victims of national origin harassment has given us the insight and experience to handle your case. We see a wide range of cases and have the capability to defend your rights with tailored strategies. If you have been subject to general harassment due to origin, or if any of the following apply, we can help:

HAVE YOU BEEN CALLED A TERRORIST SIMPLY BECAUSE OF YOUR ETHNICITY?

The global geopolitical environment has led to the irrational painting of entire ethnicities with broad strokes. This has led those of middle-eastern origin to be faced with extreme harassment based off of generalities and uneducated assumptions. If you have been targeted, your rights are protected under law, and BH can fight for you.

HAVE YOU BEEN MISTREATED AND HARASSED AS AN ASIAN-AMERICAN DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?

Specifically, with the spread of the coronavirus, and the unfortunate language that has been publicly used to address the virus, there has been an increase in discrimination and harassment against individuals of Asian descent. It is vitally important for employers to pay attention to whether certain employees are being targeted because of their national origin.

HAVE YOU BEEN HARASSED BECAUSE OF YOUR ANCESTRY?

We often see ignorant supervisors and co-workers mistreating employees solely because of their ancestry, and this occurs with virtually every ethnic group: Asians, Hispanics, African-Americans, Filipino-Americans and many others. We even see cases of reverse discrimination, where Caucasian employees are targeted in work environments in which they are the minority.

None of these circumstances are acceptable. Whether you are dealing with harassment that is overt or subtle, you do not have to put up with it. Our legal experts are on your side, and we are here to represent you in matters involving threats, offensive comments or any conduct that is unwelcome.
