San Francisco Bay Area Discrimination Lawyers

Clients come to us seeking top San Francisco Bay Area discrimination attorneys.

California Civil Rights Law Group, a San Francisco Bay Area law firm specializing in civil rights, discrimination, and sexual harassment law, is proud to announce a new post to its blog entitled, "Governmental Bodies Take Aim at Disparate Impact." Potential changes to "disparate impact" may negatively affect discrimination law.

"Clients come to us seeking top San Francisco Bay Area discrimination attorneys," explained Larry Organ, principal attorney at the Bay Area-based law firm. "We are therefore a bit confounded by potential changes in how the government will interpret so-called 'disparate impact' in the law, potentially negatively affecting many people who face discrimination in their daily lives here in the San Francisco Bay Area."

Persons interested in reading the blog can visit https://www.civilrightsca.com/disparate-impact/. States the post, "Attacks on civil rights have become commonplace over the past few years, so it should come as no surprise that yet another civil rights protection is in danger under the current administration. Just recently, the Department of Justice released a memo calling for senior civil rights officials to re-evaluate “disparate impact”—a legal concept developed to protect people of color, women, and other groups from rules and regulations that are discriminatory in their effect, regardless of whether or not those rules and regulations were made with discriminatory intent. This protection applies to individuals in many contexts: housing, education, and employment being primary among them (although recently, this has also been discussed as critical to the enforcement of fair voting rights)." Even more information can be assessed by reading the post in its entirety.

Each potential situation is different, and only a qualified attorney can work with a client to assess the facts and law.


Here is background on this release. It is common knowledge that we live in tumultuous times. Issues in Washington spark contentious debates at both a political and cultural level; the reality is that discrimination still occurs in American institutions such as employment. Employees may feel powerless against their employers yet be subject to discriminatory practices, and employees may not understand their legal rights. Often times, only a "common sense" understanding of rights may be at work, and that employee may turn first to the Internet to educate him or herself on various issues. For these reasons, the California Civil Rights Law Group, as one of the leading discrimination law firms in the Bay Area, posts informative articles to its blog on timely issues. It is hoped that interested persons can read the blog post and then, should they feel that they are potentially impacted by discrimination, reach out to an attorney for a consultation. With offices in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Anselmo in Marin County, the discrimination attorneys at the California Civil Rights Law Group make it easy to have a confidential legal consultation.
