Employment Attorney for Chevron Employees

Chevron Corp. Employees – Dedicated Employment Attorneys

Chevron Corporation has faced many instances of employment-related violations.  In one case, Chevron was ordered by a San Francisco federal court jury to pay $5,500,000 million for retaliation and wrongful termination.  This case was preceded by years of harassment and discrimination against an employee.   In another case, a plaintiff complained that Chevron did not prevent a hostile work environment where she faced sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and retaliation.  Further, in 2018, Chevron settled for $8,000,000 in a case where age discrimination and disability discrimination were found by the court.

Over the last several years, we have noticed an increase in the number of employment discrimination lawsuits against California companies.  As they say, where there is smoke, there is fire, and we have no doubt of the pervasive labor code and employment law violations including Equal Pay Act violation, Unfair Competition Law violation, hiring discrimination, sexual harassment, gender and sex discrimination, whistleblower retaliation, and other sexual misconduct.

If you are a former or current employee at Chevron Corp. (or Chevron USA, Inc.), please be aware that there are non-public settlements holding companies accountable for a culture filled with bias, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and intimidation.  We continually receive reports of rampant hostile work environment and unlawful wage disparity are regional entities.

Most Common Laws Protecting California Employees

The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) Enforcement Coverage includes several employment laws such as: The FEHA, The Unruh Civil Rights Act, The Disabled Persons Act, The Ralph Civil Rights Act, and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”).  FEHA prohibits discrimination, harassment, and retaliation against employees and applicants based on a number of protected characteristics, such as race, age, ancestry, gender, gender identity, disability and so on. Additionally, significant employment-related amendments to the FEHA aimed at employers of a certain size provide eligible employees with certain types of job-protected leave, including:

  • The Pregnancy Disability Leave (“PDL”) law provides unpaid leave benefits to employees disabled by pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition.
  • The California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”) provides unpaid leave benefits for family care and medical leave.
  • The New Parent Leave Act provides unpaid leave benefits to bond with a new child.

The FEHA also prohibits housing accommodation owners from discriminating against any person based on protected characteristics. For more information about the employment-related aspects of the FEHA, call our office to discuss.

The Unruh Civil Rights Act prohibits California business establishments from discriminating against all persons in accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services on the basis of Sex, Race, Color, Religion, Ancestry, National origin, Disability, Medical condition, Genetic Information, Marital status, Sexual orientation, Citizenship, Primary language, and Immigration status.

The Disabled Persons Act provides that individuals with disabilities or medical conditions have the same right as the general public to the full and free use of various public places (including, streets, highways, sidewalks, walkways, public buildings, medical facilities and public facilities).
