More About

Workplace Discrimination

Employment and labor laws prohibit discriminatory or unfair treatment of an applicant or employee based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or parental status. Federal law forbids “discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.”


Employment policies or practices applicable to all employees may be illegal if they have “a negative impact on the employment of people of a particular class and are not job-related and necessary to the operation of the business.”

What Laws Protect Employees from Discrimination?

Employees are protected against discrimination under federal and state legislation. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act are two of the most important of this legislation. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees based on their religious beliefs, race, national origin, color, ancestry, mental or physical impairment, marital status, sex, gender or gender identity, expression, age, sexual orientation, or military or veteran status under these laws. Discrimination against those with a genetic predisposition to sickness is likewise unlawful in California. It is against state law to test employees for genetic markers.
