Workplace discrimination can take many forms, which is why many clients often do not realize they have a claim against an employer. Discrimination means an employer treats an employee differently based upon the employee’s protected status or category. Under California law, protected categories include race, gender, age, national origin, religion, pregnancy, disability, and sexual orientation. California law also protects other statuses and categories, and protected status may also be extended to association with someone in a protected category. Discrimination commonly results where an employer terminates, suspends, or fails to hire or promote an individual based on his or her protected category. Discrimination laws are complex and depending on the circumstances of the case, may involve a number of federal and state laws. Consulting Southern California discrimination attorneys experienced with these matters is essential to ensure your rights are adequately protected.
Discrimination claims often involve other issues, such as wrongful termination or harassment. Harassment claims similarly can be based on grounds such as race or sex, and commonly include claims for sexual or gender harassment. If you have questions regarding any of these areas of law, it is essential to contact effective Southern California harassment attorneys who can identify and evaluate all possible options under the law.
