Federal law and the law of California prohibit employers from discriminating against workers based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and other protected classifications.
When employers violate these protections, it is important to hold them accountable with the help of skilled legal counsel.

When Does Workplace Discrimination Occur?
Workplace discrimination can occur at the outset of one’s job search. If a company refuses to hire a person based solely on their membership in a protected class, it would rise to the level of discrimination. Discrimination can also occur at any point during a person’s employment.
Discrimination can take many forms, including:
- Differences in compensation
- Being repeatedly passed over for promotions
- Being assigned undesirable job tasks
- Being denied disability leave
- Exclusion from retirement and benefit options
- Being denied the use of certain facilities
- Lewd jokes or uncomfortable language
It is important to keep in mind that not every adverse action taken by an employer may rise to the level of discrimination. Employers may have any number of reasons for choosing how to run their business. The problem arises when an employer attempts to use a seemingly valid reason for an adverse action as a pretext for illegally discriminating against employees.
It can be difficult to determine when an action is legal and when it is not. That is why having a dedicated lawyer review your claim is so important.
