What to Know About California Employment Discrimination Laws

As an employee, you should be judged on your individual merits—not on stereotypes or other preconceived notions about what you can and cannot do. Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace remains a serious problem. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines workplace discrimination as “unfair” or “less favorable” treatment. Discrimination is unlawful when it occurs because of a legally protected characteristic. Common examples include race, color, national origin, sex, gender, pregnancy status, age, and disability status. Employees in Anaheim may be protected against workplace discrimination under federal law or state law: 

We Handle All Types of Workplace Discrimination Claims in Anaheim

With a dedication to putting employees first, our law firm advises on the full range of workplace discrimination claims. At the Law Office of Joseph Richards, P.C., we are prepared to protect a client’s rights and help a client navigate the legal claims process—no matter the specific situation that a client is facing. Employment discrimination claims we handle in Anaheim include: 

  • Age Discrimination: If you are an employee who is 40 years of age or older, you may be protected against age-based discrimination under federal law or state law. Older employees should not be treated less favorably because of their age. For example, a company should not deny older workers the chance to compete for a promotion. If you were the victim of age-based mistreatment, call our Anaheim age discrimination lawyer for immediate help scheduling an appointment for a consultation today. 
  • Sex Discrimination: Sex/gender discrimination remains a serious area of concern in Southern California. Although women are predominantly impacted by sex discrimination, it can also happen to men. California sex discrimination laws also bar unfair treatment on the basis of LGTBQ status. If you or your loved one was treated unfavorably due to your gender, call our Anaheim sex discrimination attorney today. 
  • Race Discrimination: No person should be treated less well than similarly qualified co-workers or job applicants because of their racial background. You may have been the victim of race-based discrimination if you were mistreated due to race, color, national origin, or ethnic background. Notably, these laws protect workers regardless of their actual racial background. Contact our Anaheim race discrimination lawyer for immediate assistance with reviewing the facts of your potential case. 
  • Disability Discrimination: Disabled workers deserve fair and equitable access to job opportunities. All employers covered by the ADA (15 or more employees) must refrain from disability discrimination and make a proactive effort to provide reasonable accommodation for disabled employees and disabled job applicants. The improper denial of reasonable accommodation may constitute disability discrimination. For more information about your rights or options, please contact our Anaheim disability discrimination attorney today. 

You Have the Right to Report Discrimination: Understanding Retaliation Claims

You should never be forced to endure unlawful discrimination in the workplace. If you believe that your rights were violated under Title VII or FEHA, you have a legal right to report the matter informally to a supervisor, raise a formal complaint within your company, or file an official legal claim. Employers in Anaheim are prohibited from taking adverse action (unfavorable action) against an employee because that employee has reported discrimination or filed a complaint. 

If you were punished for complaining about workplace discrimination—either because you were subject to harassment, sanctioned by your employer, or terminated from your position—your rights may have been violated. You may have been the victim of illegal retaliation. Our clients can pursue justice and compensation for both retaliation and the underlying discrimination. To learn more about your rights and options, contact our Anaheim, CA workplace retaliation lawyer today.
