Understanding California's Workplace Discrimination Laws

California is known for its well-written laws that protect employees from workplace discrimination. These laws are designed to ensure fair treatment and equal opportunities for all individuals in the workplace, regardless of their race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or other protected characteristics.

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

  1. Protected Characteristics: California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination based on various protected characteristics. These include race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, genetic information, and military or veteran status.
  2. Prohibited Actions: Under FEHA, employers are prohibited from taking adverse employment actions, such as hiring, firing, promoting, or compensating employees differently based on protected characteristics. Discriminatory practices such as harassment, retaliation, and creating a hostile work environment are also illegal.
  3. Reasonable Accommodations: California employers must provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities to enable them to perform their job duties effectively. This may include modifications to workspaces, flexible work schedules, or providing assistive devices.
  4. Reporting and Remedies: Employees who believe they have been subjected to  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.
  5. Employer Responsibilities: Employers in California have a legal obligation to take proactive measures to prevent and address discrimination at work. This includes implementing anti-discrimination policies, training employees and managers, conducting investigations into complaints, and taking prompt corrective action when necessary.

Consulting with employment attorneys in Huntington Beach who have experience can help navigate these complex regulations and ensure compliance with the law.

Specific Types Of Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace can manifest in various forms, targeting individuals based on their protected characteristics:

  1. Racial: When an individual is treated unfavorably because of their race or ethnicity. This can include hiring decisions, promotions, pay disparities, or hostile work environments based on racial stereotypes.
  2. Gender: Involves mistreating an individual due to their gender or gender identity. This can include differential treatment in hiring, promotion, or compensation based on gender, as well as harassment or retaliation for asserting one’s gender identity.
  3. Age: When an individual is treated less favorably because of their age, typically targeting older workers. This can include discriminatory practices in hiring, layoffs, promotions, or training opportunities based on age stereotypes.
  4. Disability: Unfair treatment or mistreatment of individuals with disabilities, including physical, mental, or cognitive impairments. This can include failure to provide reasonable accommodations, harassment, or retaliation against individuals with disabilities.
  5. Sexual Orientation: Targets individuals based on their sexual orientation, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. This can involve discrimination in hiring, promotion, or workplace harassment based on stereotypes.
  6. Religion: This can include failure to accommodate religious practices, harassment based on religious beliefs, or treatment in hiring or promotion.

Employers are legally obligated to prevent and address discrimination, while employees have rights protected under federal and state anti-discrimination laws.


How Do I Prove Discrimination at Work?

Workplace discrimination is prohibited under state and federal laws in California, providing extensive employee protections.

The primary legislation governing discrimination at work in California is FEHA.

FEHA applies to employers with five or more employees, including both public and private sector employers. It covers various aspects of employment, including hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, and terms and conditions of employment. Additionally, FEHA prohibits retaliation against employees who oppose discriminatory practices or file complaints alleging discrimination.

In addition to FEHA, federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) also provide protections against workplace discrimination. These laws complement FEHA and may offer additional avenues for redress for aggrieved employees.

As such, employers and employees must understand their rights and obligations under California workplace discrimination laws to ensure compliance and prevent discriminatory practices.

Evidence Needed to File an Unlawful Discrimination Claim


Filing an unlawful discrimination claim requires gathering solid evidence to support your case. Understanding what evidence is needed strengthens your position and prepares you for the legal process ahead, ensuring that you can effectively argue against unjust treatment:

  1. Documentation: Collect any relevant documents, including emails, memos, performance evaluations, and employment records, that support your discrimination claim. These documents can provide concrete evidence of discriminatory actions or patterns.
  2. Witness Statements: Obtain statements from co-workers, supervisors, or other witnesses who observed or can attest to the behavior you experienced. 
  3. Employment Policies: Review company policies, handbooks, and procedures to identify any practices or policies that may have been violated. Any disparities between stated policies and actual treatment can be used as evidence of discrimination.
  4. Comparative Evidence: Identify instances where employees in similar situations or with similar qualifications received preferential treatment or were subjected to different standards. Comparing treatment between similarly situated individuals can highlight wrongful practices.
  5. Adverse Employment Actions: Document any adverse employment actions you experienced, such as demotion, termination, denial of promotion, or unequal pay, and gather evidence supporting the motives behind these actions.
  6. Personal Records: Keep a record of any personal notes, diaries, or journals detailing incidents of discrimination, including dates, times, and descriptions of discriminatory behavior. These records help provide a timeline and context for your claims.
  7. Direct Evidence: If available, gather direct evidence of statements or actions made by supervisors, managers, or co-workers. Direct evidence directly links intent to adverse employment actions.
  8. Circumstantial Evidence: In the absence of direct evidence, gather circumstantial evidence that supports an inference of discrimination, such as treatment patterns, statistical disparities, or changes in behavior following the assertion of your rights.


The Process For Filing a Complaint

Filing a complaint in California typically involves several steps to ensure that your rights are protected and your claim is adequately addressed:

  1. Document the Discrimination: This may include emails, memos, performance evaluations, witness statements, and personal notes detailing incidents of discrimination.
  2. Contact DFEH: The first step in filing a discrimination complaint is to contact the DFEH, which is the state agency responsible for enforcing California’s anti-discrimination laws. You can file a complaint with the DFEH online, by mail, or in person at one of their offices.
  3. File a Complaint: You’ll need to provide detailed information about the discrimination you’ve experienced, including the nature of the discrimination, the individuals involved, and any relevant evidence you’ve collected. The DFEH will investigate your 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 your complaint, they will issue you a right-to-sue notice, allowing you to file a lawsuit against your employer in civil court. This notice allows you to pursue legal action independently or with the assistance of an attorney.
  5. Consider Legal Representation: While you have the right to represent yourself in a discrimination lawsuit, it’s often beneficial to seek legal representation from an experienced employment law attorney. Our attorneys at Feher Law can provide valuable guidance and advocacy throughout the legal process, increasing your chances of a successful outcome.

The Clock Is Ticking!

California has extended the timeframe for filing an employment discrimination claim. As of January 1, 2020, amendments to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) allow employees to initiate a charge up to three years from the date the discrimination, retaliation, or harassment occurred.

This change significantly increases the period from what was previously allowed, giving individuals more time to take legal action against unfair treatment in the workplace.

At Feher Law, we offer our legal services for employment law claims on a contingency fee basis. This means you won’t have to pay any upfront costs or out-of-pocket expenses. Our fees are contingent upon the successful resolution of your case, so you only pay if we secure compensation for you.

FAQs

Yes, individuals who experience discrimination in the workplace in California have the legal right to file a lawsuit against their employer. California has robust anti-discrimination laws in place to protect employees from discrimination based on various protected characteristics, including race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, and military or veteran status.

The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) in California is a state law that prohibits discrimination and harassment in employment and housing based on protected characteristics such as race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, age (40 and over), and genetic information.

It provides individuals with legal protections against discrimination and harassment in various aspects of their lives, including hiring, firing, promotion, compensation, and terms and conditions of employment. FEHA also mandates that employers provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities and engage in the interactive process to address their needs.

Additionally, it establishes procedures for filing discrimination complaints with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and allows individuals who have experienced discrimination to pursue legal remedies through administrative or civil proceedings.

As an employee in California, you are entitled to various rights under state and federal laws, including protection against discrimination based on race, religion, gender, and age and the right to a safe workplace, fair treatment, and lawful compensation. You also have the right to family and medical leave, protected leave, and privacy in the workplace.

These rights are enforced by agencies like the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and seeking legal advice is crucial if you believe your rights have been violated.
