What Is Employment Discrimination?
In California, there are laws in place that protect workers from discrimination in the workplace. These statutes are enforced by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and generally apply to employers who have more than five employees on payroll. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against current employees and/or job applicants due to the individual’s membership in a protected class.
Under California employment law, workers are protected from illegal discrimination based on:
- Marital status
- Race or ethnicity
- Ancestry or national origin
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity or gender expression
- Mental or physical disability
- Medical conditions
- Genetic information
- Military and veteran status
In situations where an employee can demonstrate that they have been discriminated against because they are a member of one of these protected classes, the individual may pursue legal action against their employer. There are several reasons one may choose to file an employment discrimination lawsuit, including ending the discrimination, getting personal vindication, obtaining financial compensation, and protecting the future of others. Our lawyers are here to help you clarify your goals and evaluate the costs and benefits of filing a lawsuit against your employer.
