California law provides strong protections for workers against marital status discrimination, including protections through the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

Marital status discrimination takes many forms. This type of discrimination can happen against persons of any gender, gender expression, gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Additionally, marital status discrimination can occur regardless of whether or not someone is:

  • Single
  • Married
  • Divorced
  • Separated
  • Widowed
  • With a domestic partner

What Does Marital Status Discrimination Look Like?

Marital status discrimination can manifest in various ways in workplaces throughout California. As with other types of discrimination in the workplace, it may not be easily noticeable. Differential treatment may not be easily attributed to a person’s marital status. However, this type of discrimination may affect the following:

  • Hiring decisions
  • Training decisions
  • Lower wages
  • Demotions
  • Less favorable job assignments
  • Withholding promotions
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Termination or layoff decisions
