What Is Employment Discrimination?

Employment discrimination is when an employer mistreats an employee or job applicant based on specific protected characteristics, such as race, sex, age, or disability. Unfair treatment can occur in every area of employment, from hiring and promotions to terms and conditions of employment, wages, benefits, and terminations. In California, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) enforce state and federal laws that protect workplace fairness and prohibit discrimination based on protected characteristics.

I was really nervous about hiring a lawyer but Julian and everyone in her office made the process as stress-free as it could be. She is kind, reassuring and confident and that helps make the process feel less scary. she also knows what kinds of outcomes are reasonable and will explain in detail why, and has a plan to get there. I cannot recommend her more highly.

I had the pleasure of being represented by this wonderful office and their attorneys! They were very quick about answering any questions and most times explained things so well that my questions were answered before I got the chance to ask them. I had an amazing experience, everyone is kind and very attentive to your wants and needs. A case can be very stressful and they did a great job at keeping me sane and comfortable through the entire process. I recommend them 100%.

This in an incredibly professional and responsive firm. There was an ease about getting initial information, scheduling, and working with their talented team. While I found it to be true of everyone that I encountered here, it was Julian Burns King that really went above and beyond. Her expertise, experience, and knowledge of employment law and its many facets coupled with her empathy and compassion for her clients, is truly one of a kind. I would absolutely recommend King & Siegel to anyone in need of legal advice or representation.

Julian & Elliot are very good lawyers and I am glad I trusted them with my case. When I hired attorneys, I didn't know what to look for, but I am glad I found them. They were always attentive to my case and I never felt lost even though I did not have any prior experience with litigation. Ultimately, they got a result I was happy with and I am so glad I had them to help me put this experience behind me. You would be lucky to have them in your corner.

What Are Examples of Discrimination Claims?

Workplace discrimination can take on many forms. While we hope you never need employment discrimination representation, the following are just a few examples of employment discrimination claims the Glendale employment discrimination attorneys at King & Siegel handle.

Racial Discrimination

Racial discrimination is when an employer treats an employee unfavorably based on race or color. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits racial discrimination in the workplace, including blatant acts of discrimination, as well as subtler forms, such as racial slurs, derogatory comments, or a hostile work environment. Firing or refusing to hire an employee based on race is a clear-cut case of racial discrimination.

Religious Discrimination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits religious discrimination and requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for an employee’s religious practices. Examples include refusing time off for religious observances or not allowing employees to wear religious attire.

Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination occurs when an employer mistreats an employee based on their gender, whether the employee is male, female, or non-binary. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits gender discrimination in the workplace, which can include sexual harassment or a hostile work environment based on gender. Paying employees of different genders different wages for the same job is an example of gender discrimination.

Sexual Orientation Discrimination

The Supreme Court has ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act also covers sexual orientation discrimination under the category of gender discrimination. When an employer mistreats an employee based on their sex or sexual orientation—whether the employee is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or heterosexual—it is considered sexual orientation discrimination.

Age Discrimination

Age discrimination occurs when an employer mistreats an employee because of their age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees who are 40 years or older from discrimination in hiring, promotions, wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment. 

Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination is when an employer mistreats an employee because of their disability, history of disability, or perceived disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits disability discrimination and requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities unless doing so would cause undue hardship.

Pregnancy Discrimination

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) is an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The PDA prohibits discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. It also protects employees who have recently given birth.

Do I Need an Employment Discrimination Attorney?

Discrimination claims can be challenging to prove, so working with an experienced employment lawyer who can evaluate your claim, explain your rights, and help you build a strong case is essential. Since you typically need to file a complaint with the appropriate government agency before filing a lawsuit, an employment discrimination lawyer can also help you prepare and submit your complaint. Moreover, a workplace discrimination attorney can help you navigate the legal process by:

  • Collecting evidence,
  • Negotiating with your employer to try and resolve the issue without going to court,
  • Helping you reach a fair settlement that addresses your grievances and compensates you for damages,
  • Representing you in court if your case doesn’t settle,
  • Maximizing your compensation by pursuing various remedies, and
  • Providing peace of mind and valuable emotional support and guidance.

Because employment discrimination attorneys have in-depth knowledge of federal, state, and local laws, working with one will increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome and ensuring your rights are protected overall.
