Understanding Workplace Discrimination in California
Workplace discrimination in California is a serious issue that affects many employees. To navigate this issue effectively, it's essential to understand what qualifies as workplace discrimination in this state. Employees in California are protected against discrimination based on a number of factors under the state's stringent anti-discrimination statute. Among the protected categories are race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Age (40 and older), handicap, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, and military or veteran status are all protected groups.
Discriminatory Practices at Work
Workplace discrimination can manifest in various ways, including unequal pay, wrongful termination, harassment, disparate treatment, and retaliation. Discrimination can be evident in hiring, promotion, job assignments, or even employment terms and conditions.
California Laws That Protect Employers From Discrimination
California law often offers more comprehensive protection against discrimination than federal laws. It's important to know that employees in California have the added benefit of stronger state laws, such as the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), to address workplace discrimination.
What To Do If You Experience Workplace Discrimination
If you believe you are a victim of job discrimination, you must immediately report it. You may contact a knowledgeable Pasadena discrimination attorney to represent you or file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The first step in putting an end to discrimination is recognizing it and taking action.
Speaking with an experienced Pasadena discrimination attorney can help you better understand your legal choices, evaluate your situation, and determine the best course of action. Speaking out against workplace discrimination not only protects your own rights but also helps to create a more equitable working environment for all California employees.
