The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) create certain requirements that employers must follow. If your employer has violated or failed to comply with what is required of them, then you may have a FEHA action against your employer.

  • Prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment including hiring, termination and terms and conditions.
  • Prohibits harassment of employees or applicants and requires employers to take all reasonable steps to prevent harassment from occurring.
  • Requires that all employers provide information to each of their employees describing the forms of sexual harassment, its illegality, the internal and external complaint processes and legal remedies.
  • Requires employers to reasonably accommodate employees or job applicants with disabilities in order to enable them to perform the essential functions of the job.
  • Requires employers to provide leaves of up to four months to employees disabled because of pregnancy or childbirth.
  • Requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodations requested by an employee, with the advice of her health care provider, related to her pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.
  • Requires employers of 50 or more persons in a 75 mile radius to allow eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks leave in a 12-month period for the birth of a child, the placement of a child for adoption or foster care, for an employee’s own serious health condition, or to care for a parent, spouse, or child with a serious health condition. (Employers are required to post a notice informing employees of their family and medical leave rights.)
  • Requires employment agencies to serve all applicants equally; to refuse discriminatory job orders; to refrain from prohibited pre-employment inquiries or advertising.
  • Prohibits discrimination by unions in membership or employment referrals.
  • Prohibits retaliation against any person who has filed a complaint with the Department, participated in a Department investigation or opposed any activity prohibited by the Act.
