Employment Discrimination

gen-imgFailure to hire someone because of their sex, national origin, age (40 or over), skin color, disability, medical condition, religion, or sexual orientation is illegal in California. It is also illegal for an employer to fail to promote someone for one of these reasons or to take a negative personnel action against them, such as demotion or termination. If you believe that you have been refused employment or a promotion, or been negatively impacted in your employment for one of the below listed reasons, you should consult with a lawyer to see if you have an actionable claim.

The Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) protects California workers by prohibiting discrimination and harassment in all aspects of employment including termination, hiring, and the terms and conditions of work. Our attorneys have filed numerous cases alleging violations of FEHA and other statutes that protect workers from discrimination.

Many of the causes of action that can be alleged under FEHA have relatively short statutes of limitation, meaning that if you wait too long before filing suit, you may forever lose your ability to do so. There are also preliminary steps that must be taken prior to filing a complaint, which are best tackled with the assistance of an attorney. Contact us today for a free case evaluation to find out whether you have actionable FEHA claims.

Protected categories under FEHA:

  • Sexual orientation
  • Sex
  • Disability (mental and physical – including HIV and AIDS)
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Age (over 40)
  • Ancestry
  • Medical condition (cancer and genetic characteristics)
  • Marital status
  • National origin
