WorkLife Law Family Responsibilities Discrimination Hotline
Have you been subjected to employment discrimination just because you are a parent or caregiver? If so, lawyers at the WorkLife Law Family Responsibilities Discrimination Hotline can discuss your situation with you to see. The Hotline can be reached by sending an email to hotline(at)worklifelaw(dot)org, or by calling (415) 703-8276.
The WorkLife Law Family Responsibilities Discrimination Hotline is a free service designed to help parents and other family caregivers who may be facing employment discrimination because of their family responsibilities. Hotline lawyers discuss work situations with employees and help them assess whether they have been discriminated against, provide information about the applicable laws and, if necessary, pair them with attorneys who are experienced in this relatively new area of employment law. WorkLife Law does not provide legal representation or legal advice. Contacting the Hotline does not create an attorney-client relationship.
WLL frequently gets calls and e-mails from mothers and fathers who have been passed over for promotion, denied leave, or forced out of their jobs – sometimes with express statements from employers that their caregiving responsibilities were the reason. These employees often have claims under Title VII and similar state laws, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other statutes.
