You Don’t Have To Tolerate Workplace Discrimination
Under the law, you have the right to apply for jobs and perform your work without being subjected to several forms of discrimination. Workers who are targeted by hiring managers, supervisors or employment agencies for discrimination may have a legal claim under both California and federal law.

Stopping Employment Discrimination In California
Employment law has established several “protected classes” that have historically been subject to employment discrimination, giving members of those groups the ability to file suit against employers.
In California, no employer may discriminate against you based on your:
- Race or national origin
- Disability status
- Sexual and gender orientation
- Parental status
- Immigration status
With some exceptions, discrimination is prohibited in the hiring, firing, promotion, training and paying of employees. So is harassing co-workers or subordinates about their protected class status and refusing as the employer to take steps to stop the harassment.
