FAIR EMPLOYMENT AND HOUSING ACT (FEHA)
The California Law affords employees many rights, many of which are included in the Fair employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA provides protection from harassment or discrimination in employment because of: Age (40 and over); Ancestry ; Race ; National Origin (including language use restrictions), Color ; Religious Creed ; Denial of Family and Medical Care Leave including pregnancy disability leave ; Disability (mental and physical) including HIV and AIDS ; Marital Status ; Medical Condition (cancer and genetic characteristics) ; Genetic Information ; National Origin; Race ; Religion ; Sex (which includes pregnancy, childbirth and medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth) ; Gender, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression ; Sexual Orientation ; and/or retaliation for protesting illegal discrimination related to one of these categories or for reporting patient abuse in tax supported institutions.
TAKE ACTION AGAINST YOUR EMPLOYER UNDER FEHA
You may file a private lawsuit under the Fair Employment & Housing Act. For employment discrimination issues, you are required to exhaust your administrative remedies with the Department by securing your Notice of Right to Sue before civil action can be filed.
Complaints of discrimination must be filed with the Department within one year from the date of the alleged discriminatory act.
For victims who are under the age of 18, complaints of discrimination must be filed no later than one year of that person’s 18th birthday.
