Discrimination Case — Defending Your Legal Rights

A discrimination case can often stem from sexual, racial or age related actions. An employer cannot condone these types of prejudicial conditions within their organization. If they are alerted to a discrimination case, they must take the necessary precautions and actions to correct the situation. When an employee cannot get a fair resolution, then they have the right to protect their rights through other legal avenues.

Discrimination Laws in California

Under the California Fair Employment & Housing Act, employees cannot be discriminated against based on their age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, ancestry, race, age, religious creed, color, marital status and medical condition. If an employer does not comply with this state labor law, they can find themselves dragged into a serious discrimination case. It is important that employees be treated fairly in the workplace and that they experience a positive environment.
