What is Workplace Discrimination in California?

Discrimination is an act of prejudice, bigotry, or intolerance towards an individual from a protected class. Workplace discrimination may take numerous forms, often involving:

  • The hiring process
  • Promotions and transfers
  • Wage and salary
  • Job tasks and assignments
  • Training, including requirements
  • The firing process and layoffs
  • Employee benefits

Who is Protected Under California Law from Employee Discrimination?

State law states that it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against protected classes. However, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission continues to release worrying statistics, including data collected over the last 21 years:

  • 60% of Americans reportedly have experienced or witness discrimination
  • 42% of employees have been victimized or seen racism in the workplace
  • 93% of employers reportedly will hire someone of “normal weight” as opposed to an obese applicant
  • 52% of younger employees have experienced or have seen ageism at work
  • 39% of older workers have experienced or witnessed ageism
  • 40% of discrimination accusations result from retaliation

In California, the Fair Employment and Housing Act includes protection for the following classes:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • National origin
  • Color
  • Sex or gender
  • Gender identity and gender expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marital status
  • Ancestry
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, and other related medical conditions
  • Medical condition
  • Genetic information
  • Disability, including mental and physical
  • Age
  • Political activities or affiliations
  • Military or veteran status
  • AIDS and HIV
  • Victims of domestic violence, assault, or stalking
  • Requests for leave when guidelines are followed

It is also worth noting California prohibits retaliation for anyone who files a complaint about discrimination or harassment.

If you or someone you know has been treated unfairly due to your race, gender, religion, or other protected characteristics, Mancini & Associates can help. You are entitled to justice. Our Sherman Oaks employment discrimination lawyers will fight for your best interests. Call today.

How a Sherman Oaks Workplace Discrimination Lawyer Can Help?

When you experience prejudice within your employment, California law has specific guidelines to follow. At Mancini & Associates, our workplace discrimination attorneys in Sherman Oaks can help you through the process.

First, an employee must file a complaint through the Department Fair Employment & Housing before being given the right to file a civil action. The DFEH will investigate your claims, note any civil rights violations, and determine if your case may proceed. The DFEH aims to resolve complaints through its dispute resolution services.

However, an employment discrimination lawyer may be able to file your complaint through the DFEH and obtain an immediate right to sue notice. This would allow you to pursue damages for your injuries immediately rather than navigate a complex, lengthy process.
