Discrimination at work – being treated differently from your coworkers by your supervisors or employers on the basis of something other than performance – is not only unjust, but also illegal. There are numerous laws in place that prohibit workplace discrimination at the federal, state, and local levels. However, just because it is against the law doesn’t mean that prejudice is nonexistent; it definitely exists, and it exists to the detriment of the employees who experience it.
If you have been discriminated against, you know the feelings of shame, anger, and discouragement that it can cause. The way your boss treats you matters. It can affect others’ perceptions of you, and it can also seriously hinder your ability to advance in your career. It can prevent you from being promoted and making more money, or it can be a reason someone fires you, keeps you from earning wages, and mars your employment record permanently.
Discrimination can take many forms and range from outright bigotry to subtle bias. Common instances of workplace discrimination include (but are not limited to):
- Racial discrimination
- Ethnic discrimination (nation of origin)
- Discrimination based on ability/disability
- Age discrimination
- Gender discrimination
- Discrimination based on sexual orientation
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Discrimination based on parental status
- Retaliation discrimination
For example, your employer can’t prevent you from speaking a language other than English at work except in certain circumstances. If they do, that could be considered discriminatory. Or, if you are impaired in any way, as long as you can perform your job duties with reasonable accommodations, your employer can’t consider your disability when it comes to long-term hiring/firing decisions. There are many more examples we could provide, but if you’re not sure if the way you are being treated at work qualifies as discrimination, call our law firm. You may be entitled to financial compensation under California’s employment laws.
