Stand Against Discrimination On The Job
Understanding your civil rights is an important first step in determining whether you have experienced illegal discrimination on the job. If you believe that you have experienced unlawful discrimination in connection with work or applying for work, consult with an employment law attorney.
The Law Offices of Eric A. Boyajian provides information and advocacy to Californians who have been discriminated against by their employers or fellow workers.
Protected Categories; Proving Your Case
California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) spells out the protected categories as follows:
- Race, ancestry, or national origin
- Age (over 40)
- Gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy
- Physical or Mental Disabilities or Medical Conditions
- Marital status
- Military and veteran status
Employment discrimination and workplace harassment based on these categories are prohibited.
While California’s civil rights laws may seem straightforward, details and nuances may make workplace discrimination difficult to prove. For best results in building a strong case, turn to a skilled lawyer who can advise you on ways to document discrimination or harassment. For the allegations to carry weight, the illegal actions should be verifiable.
