Employment discrimination is not only wrong, it is illegal and there are laws in California to protect employees. In fact, both state and federal laws protect employees. As the employee, you cannot control if discrimination happens to you, but you can familiarize yourself with the general types of employment discrimination and take appropriate legal action. Each employment-related law contains different protections, definitions, penalties, and mechanisms for enforcement.
Here are several resources for you that discuss the specifics of employment discrimination:
- Employment Discrimination Overview
- Breast Feeding Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Pregnancy Discrimination
- Race, Color, National Origin Discrimination
- Sex-Based Discrimination
If you are in one of the protected classes when the inappropriate conduct takes place, and it is serious enough to have an adverse effect on you, then speaking with legal counsel is the right step to take. You may feel self-doubt or want to wait, but often waiting simply allows further discrimination to occur and can sometimes affect your legal rights. Do not allow this illegal and hurtful activity to continue. Contact Kingsley & Kingsley to discuss your specific situation and protect yourself.
