An Overview of Employment Discrimination that Protects Workers in the Inland Empire

To claim discrimination in the legal context, an employee must assert that they were treated less favorably than similarly situated job applicants/co-workers because of a legally protected trait. Examples of protected characteristics include race, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, and age. If unfair treatment cannot be linked to a protected status, it may not constitute discrimination. An Inland Empire employee rights attorney can help you navigate federal and state laws. Key statutes that help to protect workers against discrimination in Southern California include: 

  • State Law: California has some of the most comprehensive and employee-friendly discrimination laws in the country. Our state provides important legal remedies for employees who were subject to illegal discrimination while on the job. The main statute in our state is the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA is relatively broad in its coverage and scope. It applies to all businesses and non-profit organizations in the Inland Empire with at least 5 workers. 

We Handle All Types of Workplace Discrimination Claims in the Inland Empire 

The Law Office of Joseph Richards, P.C. represent employees throughout the entirety of the Inland Empire. With vast experience advocating for the rights of workers and a commitment to personalized representation, our clients count on us to handle the case properly. Along with other types of legal cases, our Inland Empire employment law has the skills and experience to take on: 

  • Race Discrimination: It is no secret that racial discrimination has been a long-standing problem in our society. Even with transformative changes, race-based discrimination still happens in too many workplaces. If you were subject to unjust treatment based on your race, color, national origin, or ethnic identity, your rights may have been violated. Call our Inland Empire race discrimination lawyer to set up a free, confidential case review. 
  • Sex Discrimination: We represent employees in sex-based discrimination claims in the Inland Empire. Sex discrimination occurs when an employee’s sex, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity is used as a basis to treat them less favorably than other job applicants or their co-workers. It should be emphasized that sexual harassment is sex discrimination. If you were mistreated, please do not hesitate to contact our Inland Empire sex discrimination attorney for a free initial consultation. 
  • Age Discrimination: We handle age discrimination claims throughout the Inland Empire. Age discrimination laws protect older workers (40 and up) from unjust treatment based on their age. This includes everything from failure to hire to failure to consider promotions to targeting in layoffs and staff reductions. To learn more about your rights or your options, please do not hesitate to contact our Inland Empire age discrimination lawyer. 
  • Disability Discrimination: The ADA and California law prohibit disability discrimination in the workplace. Our Inland Empire disability discrimination attorney is a justice-driven advocate for clients. If you or your loved one was treated unfairly because of an actual or perceived disability, please contact our Inland Empire legal team for a free, strictly confidential case evaluation. 

Workers Have a Right to Report Discriminatory Practices Without Facing Retaliation

Federal and state workplace discrimination laws provide employees with a clear and unequivocal right to report discrimination. You do not have to accept mistreatment on the basis of race, sex, age, or any other lawfully protected characteristic. Your employer cannot take any adverse action against you because you did so. If they do, they may be engaged in unlawful retaliation.   

As described by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), retaliation occurs when a worker is punished for their protected activity. Retaliation is both a stand-alone legal claim and can be pursued as part of a broad discrimination claim. To get more information, contact our employer retaliation lawyer in the Inland Empire to schedule a free consultation.
