California's Workplace Discrimination Laws to Be Aware Of

California is renowned for its comprehensive laws that safeguard employees from discrimination in the workplace. These laws promote fairness and equality for all individuals, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or other protected characteristics.

Understanding these laws is necessary for employers and employees to foster a discrimination-free environment.

  • Prohibited Actions: Under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), employers are barred from taking discriminatory actions such as hiring, firing, promoting, or compensating employees differently based on protected characteristics. Additionally, practices like harassment, retaliation, and creating a hostile work environment are illegal.
  • Employer Responsibilities: California employers are legally obligated to take proactive steps to prevent and address discrimination in your place of work. This includes implementing anti-discrimination policies, training employees and managers, conducting thorough investigations into complaints, and taking prompt corrective action when necessary.
  • Protected Characteristics: FEHA prohibits discrimination based on various protected characteristics, including race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, genetic information, and military or veteran status.
  • Reasonable Accommodations: Employers must provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities so that they can effectively perform their job duties. This might involve adjustments to workspaces, flexible work schedules, or providing assistive devices.
  • Reporting and Remedies: Employees who believe they have experienced discrimination have the right to file a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Remedies for discrimination may include compensation for damages, reinstatement, or other appropriate relief.

Consulting with experienced employment attorneys in CA can help navigate these complex regulations and ensure compliance with the law.

Specific Types Of Discrimination in the Workplace

Discrimination in the office or at your place of work takes many forms, often targeting individuals because of their protected characteristics:

  • Gender: This can include disparities in hiring, promotions, or pay, as well as harassment or retaliation for asserting one’s gender identity.
  • Racial: It can include biased hiring practices, unequal pay, or creating a hostile work environment based on racial stereotypes.
  • Disability: Refers to unfair treatment of individuals with disabilities, whether physical, mental, or cognitive. It can include failure to provide reasonable accommodations, harassment, or retaliation against those with disabilities.
  • Sexual Orientation: Targets individuals based on their sexual preferences, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. This may involve discriminatory actions in hiring, promotions, or workplace harassment.
  • Religious discrimination can include failure to accommodate religious practices, harassment based on religion, or biased treatment in hiring or promotions.
  • Age discrimination often impacts older workers. It can involve biased decisions in hiring, layoffs, promotions, or training opportunities based on age-related assumptions.


Evidence is Vital in Proving You're Being Discriminated Against

Gathering strong evidence to support your case is essential to filing a claim for unlawful discrimination. It strengthens your position and prepares you for the legal process ahead, ensuring you can effectively challenge unjust treatment:

  • Personal Records: Notes, diaries, or journals detailing incidents of discrimination, including dates, times, and descriptions. These records provide a timeline and context for your claims.
  • Documentation: Emails, memos, performance evaluations, and employment records that back your discrimination claim. These documents offer concrete evidence of discriminatory actions or patterns.
  • Employment Policies: Review company policies, handbooks, and procedures to identify violations. Discrepancies between stated policies and actual treatment can serve as evidence of discrimination.
  • Witness Statements from co-workers, supervisors, or witnesses who witnessed or can verify the behavior you experienced.
  • Adverse Employment Actions: Such as demotion, termination, denial of promotion, or unequal pay. Gather evidence supporting the motives behind these actions.
  • Comparative Evidence: Identify instances where employees in similar situations received preferential treatment or faced different standards. Comparing treatment among similar individuals can highlight discriminatory practices.
  • Circumstantial Evidence: In the absence of direct evidence, collect circumstantial evidence that supports an inference of discrimination, such as treatment patterns, statistical disparities, or changes in behavior following the assertion of your rights.
  • Direct Evidence: If available, gather statements or actions made by supervisors, managers, or co-workers. Direct evidence directly links intent to adverse employment actions.

How to File a Complaint

When filing a complaint in California, there are several steps to follow to ensure your rights are protected and your claim is properly addressed:

  1. Consider Legal Representation: While you can represent yourself in a discrimination lawsuit, seeking legal assistance from an experienced employment law attorney is often beneficial. Attorneys, like those here at Feher Law, can offer valuable guidance and advocacy throughout the legal process, improving your chances of a favorable outcome.
  2. Document the Discrimination: Collect as much evidence as possible, as per our detailed above.
  3. File a Complaint: Provide detailed information about the discrimination experienced, including its nature, the individuals involved, and any evidence gathered. The DFEH will investigate the complaint and may attempt to resolve it through mediation or other informal methods.
  4. Obtain a Right-to-Sue Notice: If the DFEH cannot resolve the complaint, they will issue a right-to-sue notice, permitting you to file a lawsuit against your employer in civil court. This notice grants you the ability to pursue legal action independently or with the assistance of legal representation.
  5. Contact DFEH: The initial step is to contact the DFEH, the state agency responsible for enforcing California’s anti-discrimination laws. Complaints can be filed online, by mail, or in person at one of their offices.

As you would expect, gathering evidence and filing a lawsuit can be an intricate process. Contact our law firm today to learn more about how we can do this for you.


Deadline For Filing a Complaint

As of January 1, 2020, California has expanded the window for filing an employment discrimination claim. Amendments to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) now permit employees to start a charge within three years from the date of the discrimination, retaliation, or harassment.

This extension offers individuals a longer timeframe, providing more opportunities to pursue legal recourse against unfair treatment at work.
