What Laws Protect Employees in Los Angeles?
Numerous federal and state laws protect workers in California. Federal laws that protect employees include:
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA),
- Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA),
- Title VII for workplace discrimination,
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
- Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA),
- Wage and hour laws,
- Whistleblower and retaliation laws,
- National Labor Relations (NLRA),
- Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), and
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
- California’s state employment laws give employees numerous rights, and employers cannot discriminate against protected classes or retaliate against you for reporting workplace harassment. For example, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act makes it illegal for employers with five or more employees to discriminate against job applicants and existing employees because they are members of a protected class. Examples of protected classes include gender, sex, pregnancy status, race, age, and disability status. California also has the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), which requires employers to give employees leave for their own serious health condition, for a family member’s serious health condition, or for the birth of their child without fear of losing their job. Workers who have been employed for at least a year and worked 1,250 hours are entitled to up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave under the CFRA.
- Employment laws in California are updated regularly. In recent years, California has introduced more employee protections, including:
- Requiring companies to reclassify hundreds of thousands of workers wrongfully labeled as independent contractors,
- Prohibiting companies from discriminating based on a person’s hairstyle,
- Permitting first responders to receive workers’ compensation benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder, and
- Instituting new job equality and minimum wage guidelines.
At the local level, Los Angeles County and Los Angeles City have their own minimum wage laws.
