What to Know About the Federal and State Laws that Protect Workers Against Discrimination 

As an employee in Jurupa Valley, you deserve fair treatment. You should be evaluated based on your actual qualification and contributions. Stereotypes should not hold you back from fair and equitable treatment. As defined under federal and state laws in the United States, workplace discrimination occurs when an employee is treated less well than similarly qualified because of a protected trait. Notable laws that help to protect workers in the Inland Empire against discrimination include: 

  • California Law: You may have a claim under California state law regardless of whether or not you have a claim for discrimination under federal law. Our state’s central workplace discrimination statute is the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA applies more broadly than the comparable federal statute. It covers all businesses and nonprofits in Jurupa Valley with 5 or more workers.

  • Race Discrimination: Racial discrimination laws help to protect employees from unjust treatment on the basis of their actual or perceived race, color, country of origin, and ethnicity. Your racial background should not be by employers as a cause for unfavorable treatment. Race discrimination can take a wide array of forms. Examples include refusal denial, lower pay, denial of a promotion, heightened standards of scrutiny for job performance. and wrongful termination. Our Jurupa Valley race discrimination lawyer at the Law Office of Joseph Richards, P.C. will fight aggressively to protect the rights and interests of our clients. 
  • Sex Discrimination: Sex-based discrimination in the workplace is not acceptable. While women have long been disproportionately affected by sex discrimination, the laws are gender-neutral. Both male and female job seekers and employees are entitled to equal protection under federal law and California law. LGBTQ discrimination is a form of sex-based discrimination. Similarly, sexual harassment is also a form of sex discrimination. No matter the specific circumstances of your case, our Jurupa Valley sex discrimination attorney is prepared to conduct a free, comprehensive consultation. 
  • Age Discrimination: Some older workers struggle to get fair treatment in the workplace—especially when it comes to getting access to job opportunities and promotions. There are federal laws and California state laws in place that bar discrimination against older workers. The law generally defines an older worker as one who is 40 years of age or older. If you have questions about age discrimination laws, please do not hesitate to contact our Jurupa Valley age discrimination lawyer to set up a free consultation.
