What Is Workplace Discrimination?
Discrimination can be overt or subtle, but it is any form of an employer or supervisor treating an employee differently based on something other than pure performance (and instead on the basis of race, religion, country of origin, parental status, age, disability, etc.). It’s not only unfair, but under both California and federal employment laws, it is also illegal. Federal law, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, protects certain classes of workers from discrimination. At the state level, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act does the same.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop many employers from acting discriminatorily, but it does mean that sometimes they attempt to disguise or excuse discriminatory behavior to avoid getting sued. Common examples of workplace discrimination include:
- Asking personal questions during an interview
- Failure to reasonably accommodate disability/difference in the workplace
- Excluding particular employees from networking and career development
- Humor or comments that belittle employees
- Singling an employee out for unpleasant or dangerous tasks
- Creating a hostile work environment
- Biased employee evaluations
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination
Discrimination in the workplace can leave you feeling helpless, angry, ashamed, and depressed. It can lead to a loss of self-confidence and a loss of trust in colleagues and management, but it can also tangibly lead to negative financial consequences; perhaps you are prevented from moving up the career ladder and earning more, or lose your job and wages. The toxic effects of discrimination can affect your and your family’s ability to thrive financially, which is why you deserve compensation if you have been a victim.
All of our Ventura discrimination lawyers at our firm are intimately familiar with discrimination laws. We can represent you and pursue maximum compensation if your employer discriminated against you unfairly!
