WHAT IS DISCRIMINATION?
Discrimination is when someone is treated differently from the rest, usually in a negative manner based on certain characteristics such as, age, sexual orientation, gender, color, race, pregnancy, disability, national origin or genetic formation. Proving discrimination cases can be very difficult. However, engaging a California employment law attorney can make it so much easier for you.
WHO IS PROTECTED?
State and Federal laws assure equal opportunity and prohibit discrimination in the workplace. These laws protect everyone including at-will employees. Discrimination against employees based on their protected traits such as age, race, gender, national origin, disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or religion is unlawful and actionable in both State and Federal courts.
WHEN IS DISCRIMINATION PROHIBITED?
Discrimination is prohibited in all aspects of employment activities including: advertisements to find potential employees, processing the employment applications, screening applications, interviewing the applicants, hiring, transferring, promoting, disciplining, or potentially terminating employees, creating discriminatory environments by separating employees, imposing unsafe and hostile working conditions, that can include retaliating against employees who wish to participate in a training or apprenticeship program, or join organization or union.
