An Overview of Federal and California Employment Discrimination Laws

Broadly defined, employment discrimination is unfavorable treatment on the basis of a lawfully protected trait. Neither state nor federal law guarantees workers fair treatment in every context. Instead, the law prohibits covered employers from using protected immutable characteristics—race, national origin, sex, LGBTQ status, etc.—against employees. In practice, workplace discrimination can come in many forms. In some cases, discrimination is open and blatant. In other cases, discrimination is persistent but subtle. Some of the key laws that provide legal protections to workers are as follows: 

  • California Law: Our state has strong and comprehensive laws in place to protect workers. There are many smaller employers that are outside the scope of federal law that are still prohibited from discrimination under state law. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is the primary law that bars workplace discrimination in our state. The law applies to all employers with 5 or more total employees. Part-time employees are considered for the purposes of FEHA applicability. 

We Handle the Full Range of Workplace Discrimination Claims in Corona

Every employment discrimination claim is unique. The specific circumstances always matter. As an employee, you deserve personalized, attentive representation from a top-rated lawyer who puts in the time to handle your case the right way. At the Law Office of Joseph Richards, P.C., we take on all types of workplace discrimination cases. Our Corona, CA attorney is prepared to help clients with: 

  • Race Discrimination: The unfortunate reality is that racial discrimination has long been a problem in our country, including in Riverside County. No worker should be treated less favorably than others based on their race, color, ethnicity, or country of origin. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Housing and Employment Act provide legal protections against race-based discrimination at work. Our Corona race discrimination lawyer helps employees understand their options and take action to protect their rights. 
  • Sex Discrimination: Sex-based discrimination on the job can take many forms. It could be a woman being denied a job opportunity based on her gender. It could be an LGBTQ employee fired because of his or her sexual identity. It could be a man subject to sexual harassment by a manager. Regardless, sex-based discrimination is not acceptable. Our Corona sex discrimination lawyer is a skilled, justice-driven advocate for clients. 
  • Age Discrimination: Age discrimination laws protect the rights of older workers. An employee who is at least 40 years of age may have the right to bring an age discrimination claim for unfair treatment. An example of age discrimination would be an employer intentionally removing all older workers as part of a staff reduction initiative. If you believe that your rights were violated, please contact our Corona age discrimination attorney to schedule a free consultation. 
  • Disability Discrimination: The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and California state law protect workers against discriminatory practices based on their disability status. These are complicated legal cases. Often, there are questions about an employer’s duty to provide a disabled worker with reasonable accommodation. Our Corona disability discrimination attorney has the legal knowledge and experience to help employees pursue justice. 

What to Know About Workplace Retaliation Claims

Too many people who have dealt with illegal discrimination in the workplace feel like they simply have to sit down and deal with it. If you still have your job, you may be worried about facing punishment for trying to report and stop discrimination. Federal and state employment laws protect workers against retaliation.  

As explained by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), retaliation happens when an employee is punished for protected activity. Reporting discrimination—either directly to your boss or formally through a legal complaint—is a protected activity. If you or your loved one faced punishment for reporting discrimination, please contact our Corona employment retaliation attorney for a free review of your legal claim.
