Despite preventative legal measures, discrimination is an everyday occurrence for workers in the state of california and across the nation.

What Is Discrimination?
The U.S. Department Of Labor classifies workplace discrimination as instances where an employer treats an applicant or employee less favorably merely because of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or status as a protected veteran. Discriminatory treatment can look different for every individual. The California Fair Employment And Housing Act (FEHA) specifically protects all employees who work for a company with 5 or more employees under the following characteristics:
- National Origin
- Physical & Mental Disability
- Medical Condition
- Genetic Information
- Marital Status
- Sex (Pregnancy)
- Gender Identity
- Gender Expression
- Age (If you’re over the age of 40)
- Sexual Orientation
- Military or Veteran Status
Despite these prohibitions that were established to protect employees, workplace discrimination still occurs anyway. If your employer is treating you differently due to one of these characteristics, you may be facing unlawful discrimination!
